How to Open a Yoga Class

All yoga classes include an opening period of centering and focus. This beginning segment sets the tone for the rest of the practice.There are many possible openings. During the best openings, the flow of breath is established, the mind begins to quiet and the body begins to warm up for more challenging postures.
Whether you are a teacher or a student planning a home practice, it is critical to set the tone for your yoga practice. Choose a space that is quiet, with soft lighting and moderate temperature. Music can also help set the tone for a yoga practice. Shakta Kaur Khalsa, author of “Kundalini Yoga,” suggests adding an altar to your yoga practice space. Items on the altar could include photos, statuary and a candle.
The best yoga class openings are performed when seated in Easy pose, a simple cross-legged position. However, if you have physical difficulties that make sitting on the floor difficult, try sitting in a chair. Teacher B

.K.S. Iyengar also suggests opening class while laying down. Ellen Vitale, founder of South Jersey Yoga, opens her classes in Mountain pose and includes some simple arm movements through a Half-Sun Salutation.
Breath awareness is a critical part of yoga. During the opening sequence, take time to connect with your breath. Erich Schiffmann, author of “The Spirit and Practice of Moving Into Stillness,” suggests beginning by just being aware of your breath

. After a minute or two of simply paying attention, Schiffmann recommends deepening the breath by practicing the yogic breath called Ujjayi breath or ocean breath. This breath is performed through the nostrils and includes long, smooth rounds of inhalations and exhalations.
Mantra or chanting is used to open a yoga practice. Mantra is a prayer or intention used to focus and steady the mind. It can be a single word, syllable or complete sentence. Chanting the syllable “Om,” is a popular mantra to begin a yoga practice. In the Kundalini yoga tradition, the mantra “Ong namo guru dev namo,” is repeated three times to tune in before yoga practice.

Is It Important to Stretch Before Exercises?

Stretching improves flexibility and makes up an important part of an exercise routine. However, not all people stretch before exercise, so you may be wondering if stretching is important. Not all types of stretching are equal, so the type of stretches as well as the timing makes a difference in flexibility and exercise. If your current stretching routine doesn’t appear to improve overall flexibility, then you may want to consider making some changes.
Traditional stretches such as bending over to touch your toes or stretching out your legs on a fence may be part of your pre-exercise routine, but this type of stretching, also known as static stretching, increases your risk of injury and does not promote flexibility. The American Council on Exercise warns against stretching cold muscles, promoting warm-up activities before stretching. Also, when performing a static stretch, bouncing or pushing the stretch to the point of discomfort are less effective for improving flexibility and increase your risk of injury.
A comparison of different types of stretching demonstrates that active stretching improves flexibility. Active, otherwise known as dynamic stretching, involves moving parts of your body, gradually increasing the reach of muscles and the speed of movement. In a 2010 study published in the “Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine,” hamstring flexibility was tested using static or active stretches. After a four-week period, the group that performed active stretching gained greater flexibility in their hamstrings, while the static group saw either no or minimal gains in flexibility. Following both groups throughout the study, researchers noticed that the active stretching group continued to increase their flexibility to a greater extent than the static stretching group.
Active stretching does not require a complicated routine, but promotes benefits when your routine uses the same muscle groups as your exercise. Increasing your circulation and flexibility not only improves flexibility, but also decreases your risk of injury. For example, a runner may want to start off with a light jog or brisk walk before breaking out into a run, warming up the muscle groups and preparing them for more strenuous activity. Low-impact activities such as walking for runners, light kicking for football players, or a few serves for tennis players increase the heart rate and blood flow to the muscles, warming up body temperature and allowing you to reach your full range of motion in a controlled way.
While stretching is important for flexibility, one promoted benefit of pre-exercise stretching is a reduction in soreness. However, muscle stretching, either before or after exercise does not produce any noticeable reduction in muscle soreness. A 2011 Cochrane Database Systematic Review looked at 12 studies and determined that stretching had a minimal effect on post-exercise soreness. Although multiple benefits from stretching exist, delaying or reducing muscle soreness does not appear to be a benefit

. Muscle tightness, a related area, does improve from both active and static stretching. The American Council on Exercise recommends active stretching before a workout and static stretching after exercise to increase muscle flexibility and reduce tension.

Build Strength and Improve Performance in Just 4 Weeks

What does it take to be a top-level athlete? How do elite athletes train? As a personal trainer, these are questions I¡¯m frequently asked, and, unfortunately, there isn¡¯t one catch-all answer. Rather, the answer is a frustrating one: It depends.
Each athlete is different, and the demands of each sport are different. What a soccer player requires to qualify as elite is not what it takes for an American football player to be elite. Even within the same sport, there are varying standards depending on the position. A midfielder needs to run more than a defender, thus, the midfielder must have a greater aerobic capacity and endurance to play at a high level.
Most non-athletes are quick to jump into programs without fully understanding what they want to accomplish. So before starting a new training program, ask yourself:
1. How is my current alignment and movement potential?
2. What are my performance goals?
Once you¡¯ve answered these questions, the program will be easier to write and more focused on what you want to achieve.
A program is useless without someone to train. Once you have that someone — whether it¡¯s yourself, a friend or a client — you can answer the two questions above.
Let¡¯s take a repeated-sprint athlete as an example. Repeated sprinting requires short, high-intensity bursts of activity for roughly 10 seconds and brief recovery periods of about 60 seconds. Think of sports like rugby, soccer, lacrosse and American football in which athletes alternate between sprinting, jogging and resting.
Before beginning, it¡¯s important to address the following:
1. Movement and Alignment
Start with the basics. Without proper alignment and movement, you put yourself at greater risk for injury, which will hinder your athletic performance. Will movement ever be perfect? No. But you can make small adjustments to stay within a range of acceptability. Identify your areas of weakness (knee and hip misalignment are common causes of injury) and work to achieve correct positioning throughout your full range of motion.
2. Energy-System Development
Your body¡¯s energy systems boil down to two main principles: speedy delivery and efficient usage. Your body not only needs to deliver the substrates required to perform an activity, but also use them efficiently to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Think of a car: Getting gasoline to the engine is delivery, and using the gasoline to generate power is efficiency. But delivery must come first. You have to get gas to the engine before worrying about how efficiently the engine uses it. By switching up the intensity and volume of your training, your body will adapt to the increased demands and become more efficient in energy delivery and usage.
3. Building a Strength Base
Athletic success relies on how quickly you can generate force ¡ª commonly referred to as rate of force development. But you have to be able to generate force at a normal speed before you can do so quickly. This is why you¡¯ll need to spend time working on developing more absolute strength ¡ª to give yourself a base from which you can learn to develop force quickly.
Now that we¡¯ve covered the basics, you can start on a four-week program that¡¯ll help you get stronger, move better and become more athletic.
With a solid training base established

, you can move on to the more advanced components of training and challenge yourself to get stronger, faster and more explosive. Here¡¯s how:
STEP 1: The Warm-Up
So often the warm-up gets overlooked, despite how important it is to your overall workout. You¡¯ll need to do more than check yourself out in the mirror while doing a few toe touches and arm swings before diving right in.
It may not be the most exciting part of your workout, but it gives you an opportunity to work on and solidify your positioning before you start, and it prepares your body for exercise by waking up the muscular

, cardiovascular and central nervous systems.
By focusing on the correct exercises, drills and correctives, you have the capacity to reposition your body to the optimal alignment. Then you can take that corrected alignment into the workout to solidify it.
For example, if your pelvis tilts anteriorly ¡ª your frontal hips point downward, resulting in lower-back sway ¡ª it should be your goal during your warm-up to inhibit and activate the right muscles to correct this faulty position. Once you¡¯ve gotten the pelvis to a neutral position, you can make it stick with the rest of your strength-building routine.
STEP 2: The Lift Days
If you¡¯re like most people, lift days are what you most commonly associate with working out. And while your training program should include the old standbys like deadlifting, squatting, pressing and rowing, it should also include a wide variety of other weightlifting exercises.
The first part of the workout focuses on more reactive exercises ¡ª things like jumping. The second part emphasizes building strength and solidifying good movement. And the final part trains either the aerobic or alactic energy system (provides immediate energy for high-intensity movement), since that¡¯s where a repeated-sprint athlete will need to invest the bulk of his or her time and energy.
Ideally, there should be three days of lifting, which allows for more recovery time between sessions and means you can really push it. And it allows for more intense conditioning sessions, since total volume in the weight room will be lower.
STEP 3: Conditioning
In the 2011 review published in the journal Sports Medicine, the authors discussed the need for repeated-sprint athletes to prioritize both traditional sprint training (including strength training) to build explosive strength and high-intensity interval training to improve recovery time.
So you¡¯ll have three conditioning days. The first and third days will focus on alactic power development to improve the rate at which your body can produce energy, and the second day will focus on cardiac output to improve aerobic capacity.
STEP 4: Hit the “Off” Switch
At the end of every workout, you¡¯ll wrap up with a breathing drill. Do not undervalue the benefits of breathing and skip this important step. The point of the breathing drill is to find your off switch as quickly as possible following each workout. It¡¯s intended to help you get out of your sympathetic nervous system (the flight-or-fight response) and into your parasympathetic system (the rest-and-digest system) by slowing your respiration and heart rate. Your body has a hard time recovering if you¡¯re on edge immediately post-workout because the body puts everything on standby that doesn¡¯t help you survive the immediate moment. It¡¯s not until the threat is gone that your body winds down and allows you to relax, digest your food and recover.
In putting together your own training program, you have to ask the right questions and consider many variables in order to put the puzzle together the right way. Here are a few things to know about this program before you get into it:
? Tempo represents the speed at which you¡¯ll lift. For example, if the tempo says 3010, you¡¯ll take three seconds going down, no pause, press or stand up in one second, and then go into the next rep without a pause.
? KB stands for kettlebell.

The Best Youth Football Helmets

All youth football helmets sold within the United States must conform to safety standards set by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment. However, studies like one recently done by the University of North Carolina draw attention to the prevalence of mental health issues in football players with a history of concussions. It¡¯s therefore important for your children¡¯s safety that you choose the best youth football helmets available. Riddell, Schutt, and Xenith all offer youth football helmets designed with the best anti-concussion technology.
A study published in the Journal of Athletic Training found that the facemask on many youth football helmets does not come off in an appropriate manner. It is standard practice for trainers to remove the player¡¯s facemask when a head or neck injury is suspected. The study found that helmets with stainless steel or nickel-plated carbon screws were the most likely to successfully come unscrewed when necessary
