Hi there. Is vinyasa yoga more appropriate before after an intense cardio workout? (Wrestling, Mauy Thai, Jui Jitsu)
Warm up vs cool down: Active warm up is ideal prior to intense workouts. Depending upon how aggressive your yoga routine is, it might serve as warm up. With that said, cooling down is also a good idea after intense exercise too. Bottom line, there's no proof that any specific exercise routine is better than another for warm up or cool down, aside from general statements. ...Read more
