    Ok. I'll do it if you lie on your stomach and try to bring your toes to the back of your head.

    We'll see who gets there first

    I did Ashtanga very seriously for about 3 years but it killed my adrenals. A body by science type of weight lifting protocol has definitely made me stronger than the yoga did. I have missed the flexibility of the yoga and the way it seems to work every single fragment of muscle in the entire body. What I don't miss is how it totally killed my adrenal glands and took up almost 2 hours of my day, everyday.

    I have often wondered what would happen if the two were somewhat combined... like a full long session of Ashtanga, but only once a week to allow for recovery and muscle growth. Oh course eating paleo now vs. my then vegan nearly fat free diet has something to do with it too

    Kids, kids, kids, settle down. You're comparing apples to oranges. Both resistance training with barbells and yoga have their place in the sun. You'd be wise to dabble in both.

    Well, technically you did by making claims about weight training while admitting you've never trained with weights.

    I was kidding...!!!

    And I should edit that comment... When I first started trying to get fit I used to go to the gym three times a week and lift weights. It was probably 5 years ago. It had really good, quick effects, but they didn't last. I never lift now.

    But I'm not qualified beyond my own experience in weight lifting so I'm sure there are more effective ways to train. That are long lasting.

    Men are so sensitive!

    Everyone chillax.

    No one's putting down weightlifting. We can be strong, flexible, rational Groks and Grokettes by incorporating both. Namaste.

    The benefits of yoga can be quite subtle yet far-reaching.

    For example it stimulates the internal organs.

    I find that if I do a few yoga poses before doing a plank at the beginning of a work-out, this increases my time by about 30% on average. Yoga facilitates energy focus, calm and mindfulness.

    It's a holistic discipline that the grunts are jumping at the bit to dismiss.
    F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

    At this place I used to go to, the instructor had us spend a few minutes rubbing our own feet to stimulate various internal organs. But that's probs not what you meant ; )

    You sure showed her bro.

    Does she even lift???
    Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.
