Use it or lose it!For the most part I've done some yoga daily for a few years now, I still notice that if I stop for a few days I still lose some of the magic.

I don't think that yoga can "replace" lifting or strength training in the sense that it could build muscle and improve your metabolism and body composition. It might be very good for you, physically and otherwise, and contribute to better health... (more)

Yes the cardio , that is way too much. In fact you don't even need hiit. What I would recommend is 3/week weight training, one hiit session and some slow walks. In fact you don't need the hiit session. Yes weight training and yoga FTW! (more)
