1. Yoga as bodyweight training. Are you one of those people that trains one muscle group while completely neglecting another? If so, bodyweight training can help to even things up: Yoga integrates muscle groups to create overall, functional strength. Sustaining yoga poses increases muscular endurance. Yoga focuses on building strength in the core stabilizer muscles of the abs, obliques, lower back and pelvis. Yoga can reduce muscle soreness following intense weights sessions, and give your muscles, joints and bones time to repair and grow. Lifting weights is inherently competitive, whereas yoga is reflective and develops self-discipline. Yoga can add variety to your training program which means you are more likely to stick to it. 2. Yoga stretches tight muscles. Do you ever feel your strength gains are limited by tight muscles and a limited range of motion? Muscles get tight from prolonged inactivity, e.g. sitting at a desk or in a vehicle for long periods of time; injury, as your body tries to protect the affected area; and after exercise, caused by microscopic tears in the muscle fibers (also known as delayed onset muscle soreness). Yoga is one of the most effective ways to release tension in tight muscles. It incorporates static and dynamic stretching to increase flexibility and suppleness throughout your entire body. Not only can this reduce the soreness caused by intense strength training but it’s also crucial for restoring full range of #yogainstructor #yogasana #inversion

Today's workout is yoga. This yoga ab workout was quick, but effective. This was the first time I tried this yoga workout and I can feel my abs burning. Hopefully, I'll have a chance to get in a run and training today. https://youtu.be/8RwVG96AxSM #yoga #abs #abicarver #top.me #fitness #healthy #fitmom #filmlife #crewlife #actorslife #pittsburgh
