Product Overview

Yoga makes good athletes better. With its emphasis on flexibility, balance, and whole-body strength, this time-honored discipline leads to better form, efficiency, and power. As increasing numbers of athletes are discovering, it improves mental focus and endurance, assets that become especially important at the end of a training session or race. This book explains how athletes can see progress from just ten minutes of yoga each day. It features more than 230 color photographs illustrating over 100 poses that target common areas of inflexibility and overuse; breath and meditation exercises; different types of yoga for each phase of training; a DVD with warm-up and cool-down routines; and recommendations for intensity and volume of yoga workouts throughout the training year. Author Sage Rountree's applications for training and racing ease the introduction to yoga, making this a practical and worthwhile guide for all athletes.
