Fluid yoga movement with many different movements to open and loosen up the spine and the body. It's time to get supple!
Hard training where you really grind and push the envelope is excellent for producing strength and muscle gains, but often you need to let the body heal and get loosened up.
If you only stick to one-dimensional movements such as the bench press and squat, you can expect to become stiff unless you do enough counter mobility work.
When you combine yoga and strength training, you start to get some interesting results. It becomes "movement" where both sides of the spectrum are present.
Movement 20XX combines both sides into one: there are serious strength training exercises paired with plenty of yoga and mobility. There are completely open movements that utilize the entire body and there are also mobility drills that specifically target certain parts of the body.
The purpose of the many movements presented in this video and article is to use the whole body, especially the spine, to generate the movements. This will stretch, mobilize and open up the spine.
The correct execution is what produces results (not just the exercise). Although several of the movements may look "easy", you need to make the movements effective by using a slow tempo, focusing on control and by fully utilizing the body (arching and extending the body etc. ).
All movements and exercises work and are beneficial to do (regardless of your training status) if you just utilize them correctly. This is why the basics will always be the foundation for every successful athlete.
