Counteract all those hardcore workout routines with one that stretches and lengthens your muscles while revving up your metabolism
We all want a strong and toned body, but contracting your muscles over and over without taking the time for stretching can cause injury and aches. Enter: yoga, the ultimate body release to loosen up those tight quads and calves and re-align your back and spine. Don't get it twisted, though, yoga isn't just about stretching—it builds strength while still building a toned and sleek physique.
Standing poses such as triangle and half moon engage your core and learning the power of the breath (a key element in yoga) will help rev up your digestion and balance out any HIIT routine or dumbbell workout. You'll gain flexibility in those problem areas that tend to be contracted while sitting all day and build core strength and power all at once.
