BulletProof Banter Week of 2/17/14

YOGA + CROSSFIT = SUCCESS- NEW CLASS STARTS THIS WEDNESDAY!

Power Yoga is coming to the box! Michelle Savage-Mena will be teaching power yoga on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10am starting this week! Wednesday 2/19 will be her first class, so make sure you don’t miss out on this great addition to the box.

This 45 minute class is designed for building strength and increasing flexibility. You will work deep intrinsic core muscles, play with arm balances, open up tight hips and hamstrings, and gain a deeper awareness of your breath and alignment. You will heal and prevent common injuries as you learn to move more efficiently and increase your range of motion.

Yoga and CrossFit may seem like completely different methods of training but combined they can work together to build a better athlete. Yoga can help you with recovery and flexibility. It allows you to stretch out your muscles and aids in recovery for ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues. Flexibility is key when trying to attain perfect form. We can all benefit from increased range of motion. Poor flexibility can limit what we are able to do, like lacking shoulder flexibility can affect your overhead squat but having more hip flexibility will help with deadlifts or kettlebell swings. Yoga strengthens the core and back muscles while improving balance, stability and coordination.
