A.M. Stretching & Mobility Work

in yoga •  2 months ago

I’ve been extremely sore the past couple of days, likely because I have been performing unorthodox workouts with a new personal trainer. His style of training vastly differs from my own, but I feel as though incorporating new and innovative techniques into your routine will only benefit your overall abilities in terms of an overarching skillset. My general training technique includes bodyweight, yoga, and calisthenic movements and stretching. Usually improvisation plays a major role in how I train because I never like to do the same thing twice. I’m constantly changing things up to challenge my body in ways it has never seen before.

This new training style has challenged my body in incredibly different ways than I am used to. I’ve been working on a ju-jitsu technique classified as FIT-jitsu. The technical movements and continuous repetitive nature puts stress on several regions of the body at once, and if you are not used to this, then soreness is inevitable. This type of training is extremely useful for real world scenarios, however, and it’s usefulness is extremely valuable for self defense purposes.

Even though I’ve been training differently, I haven’t completely forgotten about my old training tendencies. I still try to incorporate as much bodyweight, yoga, and calisthenic movements and stretching into my routine as well as free weight work to keep my body apt to every possibility in existence. I have a long way to go before I get to where I want to be, but this is a lifelong commitment, and I’m only just getting started

Hi conradsuperb, it is amazing how the body becomes flexible more and more with consistent workouts. I have this with my Tibetan Rights and yoga.
