I have come back to devotional life, thanks to COVID and lockdowns.
Now I am increasing weight like anything. I was 70 KG and now I I am 90 KG (I mean my body).
Now, I wake up at 4:00 AM and do chanting and then 1 hour class. This schedule is till 9 AM.
4-4:30 bath, then chanting, in between watering plants, sometimes cooking if I get hungry. 7:40 - 9 AM online class, sometimes goes till 9:30 AM.
Now, I researched and found shortcut to reduce weight is running. Just by 30 mins running you can reduce weight like 1 KG in a week. I have bought a treadmill (semi commercial treadmill, in that you can run for 2-3 hours also).
Now, my question is when should I run, morning time is usually for sadhana. While in the evenings you get tired and dont feel like exercising.
Also, is any form of exercise preferred? Like weights, yoga, running, pranayam etc. Is weights considered not good for devotion?
Please do clarify and share expert guidance and experiences.
Please note: Intention of exercise should be to serve Krishna and Vaishnavas more and better, not to attract opposite gender.
Jai Srila Prabhupada.
