  1. To build muscle you need a greater level of resistance and fewer reps. I would suggest a set of 3, comprising of 6-8 reps for each exercise. I'm keeping this fairly generic as I not a personal trainer and I don't know at what point you are starting, your fitness levels etc. Exercises you might want to consider, after a warm up, might include dead lifts, press ups, squats, lunges, chest press etc. Just make sure you do the exercises correctly and stretch properly afterwards as well.
  2. MODS please could you close this topic. If sangat wish to continue the conversation that is not relative, they can start a new thread. Thanks.
  3. Try doing a mindmap to start with, so think about everything a Sikh believes, then in another colour mark up the behaviour and actions or fold a page in half and then draw lines between the two. Beliefs (key words): See god in all It's good to share One god Saint/ Soldier 10 gurus/ GGSJ Natural appearance Actions/ Behaviour: Humble/ Humility Honesty Brave Content/ Positive Share From this, you maybe be able to pick out a Sakhi or a Shabad to help you.
  4. let me give you an example... over 25, female, uk Goals: Tone and increase fitness levels, reduce body fat/gain muscle -- aim to go swimming twice a week and weight training twice a week I have been training since I was 21, so I would looking for someone at more of advanced level of training However, for this to work more than two people need to be willing to partake.
  5. lol guys come on ... you haven't said anything about what your goals are ... or where you are at with your fitness
  6. ok, if it helps, let's go for inclusion (just remember to add where in the world you are from then in your post). I am hoping it's not just going to end up as two people.
  7. I think the one on Saturday at Guru Har Rai gurdwara is at 1pm but check, I could be wrong. They usually provide kakaars if you don't have them. God bless.
  8. Are there any fitness enthusiats in the UK? Anyone interested in becoming a fitness buddy?

    Penji, what is actually causing you to be sad, why are you crying, what are you crying for? The reason I ask, is sometimes it helps to do some self reflection. There maybe some very simple solutions but first of all you need to understand what is causing you to be sad in the first place.

    Penji, I would strongly recommend that you partake in regular seva. Also, do something you enjoy, that will help you feel more positive, pursue a hobby or interest.
  11. The water goes through a cylinder (rather than a jug) system for drinking water, it's built into the kitchen (that's as much as I can remember). I personally don't eat out, even at weddings, in fact I ususally only go for the anand karaj and then have langar.
  12. VJKK VJKF When I went to India last year, guru kirpa, I experienced no issues with my health. I always drank boiled water, even when travelling I took boiled water that had been cooled and I bottled it myself. I never used bottle water (at the house I was mainly residing, the water had been through a water filter) to brush my teeth but I made sure I didn't swallow any. I mainly ate home made food (roti and sabji), I ate langar at certain gurdwarae but I didn't have jal. Sometimes I took a packed lunch. I did have cereal and milk for breakfast (I took my own cereal and the milk was from the ho
  13. It is not clear to me either. Are you asking what food to serve or when to serve or something else? Usually when you have guests you would do as "Seeking the light" has suggested. If the guests were coming at 1pm then you may be able to get away with offering soft drinks and then serving roti, shortly after arrival... if they were coming at an odd time like 3pm, you would usually have a starter... it depends how long you are expecting them to stay, what time you have invited them over.
  14. People might not like what I have to say... but to be honest, sometimes we have to accept that people sometimes learn best from making their own mistakes. If the relationship with the guy is fresh then you might be able to get someone to talk her out of it but if she has been dating or whatever for a long time then I am not sure she will be willing to take on board advice. I think we all go through a phase, when we are growing up, we think we know everything we need to know but we don't. If you can't talk to her, maybe write her a letter, expressing your concerns but then leave it up to her t
  15. Based on the limited information provided, I would suggest that you look into Leamington Spa (approx 15 mins drive to Coventry), Warwick, Sutton Coldfield (typically you would get a 4 bed house within budget), Harborne, Edgbaston, Walsall, Tettenall in Wolverhampton, Handsworth Wood (H.W. will be closer to Soho Road than some of the other Birmingham areas, I think you will find a larger population of Indians in H.W, so it really depends on what your criteria is, other than what you have already specified). Hope that helps, good luck.
  16. Interesting suggestions, not what I would have (referring to the protay) and I don't eat out either. This is what I have... 1. Wholewheat pasta with roasted veg, such as peppers, tomotoes, mushrooms, couguettes, aubergines 2. Wholewheat pasta with tomato sauce and vege saugages sliced 3. Wholewheat spaghetti with vege mince in tomato sauce with grated cheese 4. Wholebread bread or little brown rolls with homous, lettuce, grated carrot, peppers, cucumber 5. Wholebread bread with lettuce and cooked tufo in curry sauce (so you make the tufo before hand and allow it to cool) 6. Crackers wi
  17. Gurfateh penji I would like to ask you a question (to Brunette OP)... why do you want to take amrit? Forgive me if I am mistaken, but here it seems that you are trying to decide between amrit and a wedding outfit? It could be that depending on opinions from various people, you wear the outfit/ accessories/ do things slightly differently to follow tradition etc and you choose to take amrit later... now that is assuming that you will have an opportunity later. It could be that you take amrit and change the colour of your outfit. Either way > Think carefully about what you truely want and o
  18. Okay, so i watched a few clips, he has a nice voice but not a strong voice... that was just focusing in on the vocals rather than what he was singing. And yes, parts of the clip made me cringe too! In response to KalSingh's question, I think if a singh has a nice/ good/ strong voice he should use it for singing the praises of god, i.e. live kirtan and this could be done at personal, local, national, global level, where his talent would still be appreciated and he would not be compromising his sikhi.
  19. no worries penji, anytime.
  20. Yes penji it is fine for you to go to the gurdwara.
  21. Rugby_singh I would say no it's not okay to remove your kirpan to play sports. However, I have never played rugby so I am not in a position to advise on how best to secure it, sorry. Try contacting JaskaranS through personal messanger, if no one else can help, he goes to school and plays rugby whilst wearing a kirpan.
