Yoga For Weightlifters

GUN SHOW

1-Hour Lower Back Pain

| |

This sequence is designed to address the common muscular imbalances experienced by athletes that correlate with lower back pain.

Mobilise The Joints

| |

This sequence systematically mobilises all your major joints—the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, spine, knees and ankles.

Mobility Flow

| |

This sequence combines static stretching and joint mobilisation to loosen you up from head to toe and get you moving like an athlete.

Cool-Down

| |

This gentle cool-down is designed to completely relax you after a workout—to release tight muscles and calm the central nervous system.

Beginner Stretch

| |

In this beginner yoga sequence, we increase flexibility in muscles throughout the body and get to know some of the basic yoga poses.

Spinal Extension

| |

In this back-bending sequence, we flex and extend the spine before moving through progressively deeper and more intense backbends.

Beginner Sidebends

| |

Sidebends stretch muscles throughout the body, improve spinal mobility and alleviate pain in the lower back, shoulders and neck.

Pre-Workout Activation

| |

This pre-workout activation is designed to activate the core and the posterior chain—calves, hamstrings, glutes, upper and lower back.

Core Strength 2

| |

An integrated core will maximise your power, speed and control in your sport as well as helping to protect you from persistent lower back pain.

Rest + Recovery

| |

“A hard physical challenge must be met with an equally intense recovery. That’s one of the most profound lessons that yoga taught me.”

Skilful Flow

| |

In this flow-style sequence, we step up the pace. It requires a good level of balance as well as familiarity with the classic standing poses.

Better Posture

| |

In this gentle sequence, we stretch the sides, release the lower back and open up the hips. Try to see how easy you can make your breath.

Take It Easy

| |

In this sequence, we bend the spine forwards, backwards, side to side and in rotation, and finish with Progressive Muscle Relaxation.

Foundational Poses

| |

In this routine, we break down some basic yoga poses, as well as Sun Salutation A—a classic sequence of poses linked together into a series.

Sidebends + Hip Openers

| |

This sequence is a great one for mobilising the spine, stretching the sides of the body and opening up the hips. It’s one of my favourites.
