Flexibility. Flexibility. Flexibility.
While there are many ways to improve your flexibility (e.g. after working out or turning up to post-workout stretches), there’s one thing in this world that can help you be more flexible, agile and in a good way, stretchy like Spiderman.
Say hello to yoga!
Yoga is probably one of the things that has helped me improve so many aspects in my life. It has made me better in my trainings, helped me progress positively when it comes to lifting and in a lot of ways prevent me from injuring myself considering the amount of high intensity training I do. Because of that, I’m a believer.
While I may not be a yogaxpert (you know, yoga expert… totally made that up), I believe in balance. I believe in doing things that makes me happy and at the same time improve my physical and mental well-being. And I believe that if something has helped me in some ways to make me better, I will try my best to do it and improve my technique.
That said, I have zero clue about breathing techniques, I don’t have any more knowledge about yoga types and poses than probably my own readings and research, and unfortunately I can’t comment on posture and form.
So if you do want to learn more about yoga, I recommend sources like this and this. But if you want to learn how I have personally used yoga to help me with my trainings and quality of life PLUS a sample of some poses I personally do, read on. :)
