Jasyoga School: Get Strong
Last week class was in session on recovery. We learned approaches to listen to our bodies, adapt our training plans as needed, and how to structure an optimal recovery session.
This week we’ll cover how to use Jasyoga to get stronger. When we talk about strength, we’re talking about functional strength that is highly strategic to your sport and goals — strength work in context of what you're trying to accomplish, that supports your pursuit rather than working against it. Most athletes need more work on strengthening the smaller, intrinsic muscles that provide stability and add power to all your movements — muscles often overlooked, or overpowered, in your larger lift sessions.
If you’ve ever been to a physical therapist you might recognize some of this work. It’s the little stuff that makes the big difference. But forget that tattered print out that drifts around your house, reminding you of the little things you should be doing. When you have a program that you can follow anytime, anywhere on your phone or desktop, you’ll do the work and see the results.
Also not to be overlooked, is mental strength. This week you'll learn how to strengthen your mental game following Olympian Kate Grace's lead, and set up a daily practice as you look toward game/race day.
