Hi there. Is vinyasa yoga more appropriate before after an intense cardio workout? (Wrestling, Mauy Thai, Jui Jitsu)

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

How much exercise is over exercise. I regulary cycle for 50 kms in a stationary bike .

How much exercise is over exercise. I regulary cycle for 50 kms in a stationary bike .

Exercise: How much you exercise depends on your goal. If what you want is good conditioning then 30-60minutes a day of aerobic mixed in with 3 days a week of strength training is good. If you're training for distance biking, running or some other goal, then a training program specific to the goal is needed. If you're exercise beyond what you need for your goal, you could be said to be 'overexercising'. ...Read more

Swimmer in excellent condition, can swim laps vigorously for an hour, tried to run a 5k and couldn't run for 15 min. Is it bc of the muscle mass?

Swimmer in excellent condition, can swim laps vigorously for an hour, tried to run a 5k and couldn't run for 15 min. Is it bc of the muscle mass?

Hard to say: That is unusual as you would expect a swimmer to have excellent aerobic condition. Probably the best explanation is the use of a different set of muscles going from swimming to running that are becoming fatigued early because they are relatively deconditioned. If running is important to you, it is certainly likely you would be able to train through it. ...Read more

We used to say 6 months but per dr. Fu the king of hamstring recon he typically advises 9 mo prior to return to competitive play. Closed chain exercises are strongly advised to avoid shear across the graft. ...Read more
