Three Things You Should Do Now (On the Gym Floor)

In my last blog post here, I spoke about how fitness is a marathon, and not a sprint. Remember now, the only thing that separates the average gym-goer from the gym-goer who gets results is that they show up on a consistent basis. It is easier to do this if you have a plan, and…

February 22, 2015 by Anna Feeter Back in 2014, the Seattle Seahawks practiced pranayama (the technique of rhythmic breathing), yoga and meditation alongside their traditional conditioning and practice.

Do you wish you actually understood why muscles get “tight,” as well as what core training is and, more importantly, is not? Have you heard of Dean Somerset?

Chances are, you are doing yoga all wrong.

Chances are, you are doing yoga all wrong. The Big Mac-ification of yoga has left us “going beyond our flexibility” (the Bikram set will get it), dehydrating ourselves worse than my wrestling weight cuts (yoga is hot in India…because it’s hot in India, ahem), and being forced to listen to someone play an accordion while…
