Is ?voga? The Campest Workout Ever? - Telegraph

Madonna brought vogueing to the mainstream in 1990 The instructor warmed us up to a couple of banging 80s tunes in front of an open window to the street. I appealed to the combined forces of Karma and Madonna to ensure that my brother, who lives round the corner from the gallery, would not walk past at any time in the coming hour. Related Articles Why your friends don't want you to lose weight 13 May 2014 view site... To summarise: arms up, arms down, arms to the side and in poses around the head while lunging and thrusting. Some recognisable yoga positions and a few of the moves from Madonnas music video. A good stretch but rarely anything too strenuous. As the Queen of Pop put it: Strike a pose, theres nothing to it. The workout has come into a bit of stick from aficionados of both yoga and vogueing. The former say it doesnt take the discipline seriously enough, while the latter object to the way it appropriates a style of dance which developed in the shadow of HIV/AIDS - created by men who used it as a form of escape from lives which often involved poverty, prostitution and rejection from wider society - and re-packages it into an exercise routine for east London hipsters. (Presumably these people also avoid European music influenced by jazz and blues.) For the rest of us, though, the problem is perhaps that voga takes itself a little too seriously. While its always a pleasure and never a chore to be moving to Cheryl Lynns Got to be Real before midday, the routine is too frenetic to offer the benefits of yoga and too regimented for participants to let themselves go on the vogueing.

A Good Fitness Tool Made Better

Likes: Practical and effective. The plastic, hollow kettle bells, each fill with 10 pounds of water and won't scuff or dent your wood floors. They function well in all standard kettle bells exercises. When attached to the 10-pound padded steel barbell (made of two pieces that thread together and apart for easy storage) with plastic quick-release clamps, it makes for a handy 30-pound barbell. Four workout DVDs are included. A number of exercise routines can also be found on the website. Dislikes: At 10 and 30 pounds respectively, a kettle bell and the loaded barbell will be too light for most their website men, and there is no room on the ends of the bar to slip on some weight plates. Price: $179.97.

Give Snowden Credit For Surveillance Debate: Google's Schmidt

Former NSA analyst Edward Snowden should be credited for starting a debate about privacy versus security, Google' s Eric Schmidt, told CNBC on Friday. In a wide-ranging "Squawk Box" interview from Davos, Switzerland, the Google executive chairman also insisted that his company knew nothing about the National Security Agency's surveillance activities. He said the agency's actions have cost technology firms "hundreds of millions of dollars in profit" due to opportunities that went to international competitors. He said U.S. spying had become something of a talking point for European technology companies, giving them an opening to lure business from their American counterparts. Snowden , who is living in exile in Russia in the face of U.S. criminal charges for his disclosures about NSA spying, has been alternately hailed as a hero and vilified as a traitor. "When I look at what's happened here, a debate has been started," Schmidt said. "It was a bad policy," Schmidt said.
