Im really interested in trying bikram yoga. Ive never really been into yoga because I tend to go for workouts that burn calories and are aerobic than yoga, but bikram yoga seems like it would be considered cardio, especially because you are exercising in that 105 degree room.
Has anyone ever tried Bikram yoga? If so, about how long were the classes and do you have any estimate on how many calories are burned per class or per hour? And due to the rather expensive cost (around here, its $13/class) I would probably only go once a week, sometimes twice. Is that enough to get the benefits?
Also, my current routine is rather boring and consists of me running (very vigorously though) in place/around the room for an hour, which is about 800 calories burned. Would you say thats sufficient for a days workout? I do that 6x/week and was thinking about adding my tae bo tape everyday to the mix. My taebo tape is the Billy Blanks Tae bo Cardio, and it runs approx. 40 minutes. Is this overexercising?
My biggest goal is to lose weight and to tone up. My diet consists of about 1000-1200 cals/day and included in that is a lot of fruits,veggies and protein (in the forms of peanutbutter and meat) and the only bread I eat is whole grain. I dont really eat set meals, becase of my work schedule and now my upcoming school schedule, so I usually eat when Im hungry. Is this diet considered healthy?
Im sorry if some of these questions sound rather naive but I thank you all who take the time to read and respond
