Ironically stretching is a really inefficient way of changing tissue length at a physiological level.For the amount of yoga i have done it is quite amazing "bad" i am at it. For those that think they are crap, stick at it. Some of us are less flexible and have different body shapes. But we will get there
You need to add force (so basically controlled full ROM resistance training).What is the efficient way? I am open to suggestions?
I think my fascia is very tight as well.
Thanks i have been thinking about doing some weight training.You need to add force (so basically controlled full ROM resistance training).
I’ve forgotten the exact figures but isolating one muscle/joint; then doing 3 sets of weights 3 times a week is equivalent to holding stretches for 5min + multiple times a day every day.
Our flexibility has a neurological and physiological component.
Stretching as most people do (like, 99%) only addresses the neurological half of the equation.
A friend showed me a trick a while ago where you can make people appear to have less or more hamstring flexibility by getting them to do 2 simple things. Should make a video and post it cos it’s pretty cool.
Fascia (like the rest of our body) needs hydration so that could be something to look at.
I drink 3-4L a day and I’d still say I’m dehydrated more often that not.Thanks i have been thinking about doing some weight training.
If i am dehydrated then it doesnt have to do with not drknking enough water. Could something else cause dehydration?
Are you doing the standard or hot yoga? The hot yoga I've been doing regularly for around 6 months now I can honestly say is the best exercise I've ever done for a fantastic feeling of well being, looseness and a sense of calm.I have six weeks holiday coming up starting Friday so going to start going to yoga three times a week to increase my mobility at CrossFit.
Started weight training.DC Training emphasises fascia stretching using weights.
So standing calf raises would involve a 15 second stretch at the end of the last rep.
I have to say thst Bikram is the worst yoga I've done.Are you doing the standard or hot yoga? The hot yoga I've been doing regularly for around 6 months now I can honestly say is the best exercise I've ever done for a fantastic feeling of well being, looseness and a sense of calm.
Have you heard of auyvedic medicine?I agree.
I love to sweat and have always been into vigorous exercise so it suits me.
I am naturally very lean, some would say skinny as a rake and have never carried any extra weight throughout my whole life no matter what I ate or drank.Have you heard of auyvedic medicine?
One of my yoga teacher keeps going on about it in her classes. Anyway she mentioned that people into hot yoga and intense physical exercise are have strong Pitta dosha.
Are you naturally lean?
Yes well if there is anything in Ayurveda medicine then vipassana is going to be freakin fantastic for you.I am naturally very lean, some would say skinny as a rake and have never carried any extra weight throughout my whole life no matter what I ate or drank.
Really looking forward to it. I've had a look at a few youtube posts re what to expect and I'm thinking I'll be fine. I know I can live without phones/computers/on line stuff for 10 days, done it before. I'm good with my own company as well so I don't think I'll have too much trouble with the minimal social interaction either.Getting closer. Are you nervous?
I've never tried it and know its not for me- i cant stand saunas and heat in general. Would hate it.I have to say thst Bikram is the worst yoga I've done.
It is definitely not for everyone.
