2. Yoga move Better
YOGA WILL HELP YOU GET BETTER AT YOUR SPORT!
Metabolic resistance training is the surest way to blast fat and simultaneously gain strength and lean muscle. But strength training can also make muscles tight, and without focused flexibility your body can begin to move inefficiently due to limited range of motion.
When your body moves freely, you will actually be able to recruit more muscles, increasing power output—which means more fat loss. The more you can incorporate your entire body through movement, the more your metabolism will benefit as a result.
But honestly, who has time to stretch?! Stretching is boring, and most of us would rather spend our time hitting the weights and getting a sweat on.
Even when you make time for stretching though, if done incorrectly stretching can actually prove useless. Which means the time that you’re setting aside for stretching is actually a complete waste of time, plus if you’re cold or use bad technique you may tighten up even more.
Yoga will naturally stretch your muscles and mobilize your joints by flowing through a variety of poses. Plus, you get to do so while also doing some pretty fun and challenging things with your body. With this increased mobility, your body will be able to move more efficiently, ensuring that when you lift weights you’ll actually recruit more muscles and burn more fat while you’re at it.
I include gravity stretches where you don’t ‘try’ to stretch at all – these are more about getting into position and letting your body weight and gravity do the work.
These are a VERY effective way to get a permanent change in the active length of tight muscles.
