30 Days.

Post by TomFurman » Tue Mar 22, 2016 9:16 pm

Read this article and it's hardly news, but doing something for 30 straight days is a nice dose of fun and gives you feedback.
http://breakingmuscle.com/yoga/increase ... h-athletes

10 movements, but I added two that benefit me. Your mileage may vary.

11. Sphinx

12. Straddle with Forward Bend.

I'm on Day #10. So far, so good. It doesn't take long and you can do it watching TV at night if you want.
I started at 15 second holds and slowly increasing,.. up to a minute.

15 minutes out of your day.

Right. For every good piece Breaking Muscle publishes, they publish 1000 pieces of Nuevo Crossfit Propagandist Drivel.

I wouldn't be surprised if BM is funded by the Russes.

My favorite critique of a BM article was when I wrote "The closest the author has been to special forces training is when she has her prior-enlisted husband's penis in her mouth"

Syaigh, it's relative to range of motion for martial arts.

In this case, I have no doubt those stretches are beneficial, but the yoga speak mambo jumbo is bullshit. They stretch muscle and if you breath deeply and rhythmically they can stimulate the Parasympathetic nervous system.

I'd venture to guess Pavel's pumps and Phys coupled with a few brettzel variations is just as good

But that pumpkin scraper was a perfect piece of plastic to do it...it melted in the dishwasher one day though. It was as good as some of the SASTM (sound assisted soft tissue massage) tools I've seen.

My PC has standards. Breaking Muscle has literally none.

It is quite possibly one of the worst sources of information since dragon door
