To lift heavy, train hard and be healthy flexibility and mobility are crucial. To live long, minimize stress, increase respiratory function and diaphragmatic action breathe and deep breathing of such as in yoga are crucial.
So today and like every week and most days I do yoga. Tuesday and in particular Thursday I like to do longer sessions focusing on the breath coordinating with the movement and opening, lengthening, strengthening and deepening.
Nice 60 plus minutes today. Big focus on back bending, some hand and arm balancing, down dong, forward folds, chataranga and shoulder opening, plus Chest expansion. Feel gooooood!
