Yoga for weightlifters

11 Ways Yoga Can Help With Weightlifting

‘Yoga for strength training and weightlifting’ sounds like a total oxymoron, but time and time again the exercise disciplines prove to complement each other in surprising ways.

Yoga is much more physical than many suspect, and when combined with weightlifting can lead to numerous conditioning and health benefits.

While lifting focuses on strength, yoga works on your muscle endurance and flexibility.

Once you are more flexible from yoga, you will be more efficient in your lifting. And vice versa, as your general conditioning improves from weightlifting, you will be more efficient in yoga as well meaning the two work in synergy.

Unfortunately, most lifters do not give yoga a second thought.

Most would not even consider it a workout at all.

Well, they are very wrong.

Yoga can be more than just a good stretch and has numerous benefits – physical, mental and emotional.

If you’re interested in using yoga for strength and muscle gains then you’re in for a treat! Read More
