Yoga vs. Active Stretching, what do you recommend and how often?
I lift heavy things twice a week, been lifting weights for over 25 Years, I am now 42. The major exercises are focused on the squats, deadlifts, pushups, body rows, planks, etc., keep it at 30 minutes. Walk during the week.
On the weekend it depends on the season. Downhill ski and snowshoe in the winter (that ended last week) and mountainbike and hike in the spring through fall, some bike rides go on for 2 1/2 hrs up some pretty steep mountains. Problem is I am not as limber as I was when I was younger, walk around a little stiff and have lost range of motion. I am thinking about adding in stretching or yoga to limber up a bit as I think this will help prevent injuries. Any opinions from any of you who participate in similar activities? Which would you recommend and what frequency, thanks.
You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes
