I have recently undergone surgery for my Inguinal hernia. Now I am ok can I exercise?
Hernia is because of weak abdominal wall and regular increased abdominal pressure, constipation, cough and sudden weight lifting can some times cause hernia. Very low waist pants and not tying a belt also aggravates the problem.
Firstly you can check with your surgeon and start to
a. Walk 20min/daily twice
b. Wear a abdominal belt during exercise
c. Keep your mouth slightly open so that abdominal pressure does not increase.
d. Avoid Kapalabhati or Bhasrika or any other forcible breathing exercises.
e. Avoid lifting heavy weights or do any asanas which increase pressure in your abdomen.
f. As you become fitter, slowly add other exercises and watch any swelling in operated area. All the best.
Sir I am taking too much of green tea and other herbal teas after my exercise. Is it harmful?
Green tea has lot of benefits like it
a. Helps to prevent diabetes in some people
b. Improves sex related medical problems
c. Some herbal teas with special ingredients also help in recovery from infections.
d. The most important chemicals by name “Catechins” help as scavenger of harmful chemicals in the body.
e. “Polyphenols” also help in increasing immunity.
f. There are reports suggesting that Polyphenols also have defensive effects against cancer.
But excess of green tea/or others tea can produce sleeplessness in some people, because tannins in tea act like stimulants. So drink in right quantities that is-three cups a day.
My son, 13, is a cricket champ. How many hours can he practice? Can he eat before training?
This is a good question as more than 3000 children train in Hyderabad alone on a long or short term basis. All world class sports children train maximum of three hours a day. This includes fitness and skill training. But in most Indian cities regular training camps train children to extent of 6-7 hours a day.
More than three hrs day training puts lot of stress on child’s body. Hamstrings, knee joints, shoulder joints and lower back are the target areas. However children recover faster, but their injuries related to sport don’t recover fast.
Some injuries related to long bones can sometimes restrict their optimum growth of height. Parents and coaches should be able to calculate their load assessment. I feel a good sports camp should restrict to three and a half hours per day of training to avoid injury.
