Yoga/Pilates
« on: March 13, 2014, 08:04:45 PM »
I feel like these exercises would be beneficial for skateboarding aswell as life in general. Thinking of starting it up.
Anyone on this radical message board do any of these?

If so, which one do you think is better.

Have you got laid from your classes?

How do you hide your boner in sweatpants/trakkies with hot yoga women in front of you doing the downward dog?

yes.

yoga, because it's relaxing, too. pilates is more like exercise.

Have you got laid from your classes?

no, not directly, but i was with my wife before i ever started going to yoga.

unless you're 14 this shouldn't be a problem, besides, it's not just hot yoga women that go to classes.

A side benefit of doing a lot of yoga is the ability to hide your boner in your own mouth.

I bought this DVD a few days ago, going to try it before I commit to a class, though they probably has nothing in common.

I would be less worried about a boner, and more worried about farting really loudly. I think both would happen if I tried yoga, maybe within seconds of each other.

I'm hyper mobile meaning my joints are too lose and I dislocate easier than is healthy so yoga is not a good thing for me and I've met several people with this problem. I still do some yoga stretches in the morning but a proper yoga session could be hazardous for me. Pilates is more beneficial for me as it strengthens core muscles and synergist muscles that you can't hit with a regular workout.

If you're not meditating, being vegetarian, drinking your own piss and all that other shit you're not really doing yoga you're just stretching.

Which is probably all you need anyway.

The problem with yoga is that it takes a long time and when you're done you didn't come close to actually breaking a sweat.  Stretch for ten minutes and then go run/ skate/ play some sports.  Seems more useful.

I think swimming is better than yoga

It seems to achieve everything yoga does but more. It's easy on the joints, burns a ton of calories, great stress reliever etc.

Don't forget that it's also a lot more rewarding to release brown trout at the natatorium than it is a yoga mat.  You can make it everyone else's problem instead of having to spend 45 minutes staring at it from different angles.

I have done both and I think Pilates is better than yoga....likem yoga increases your flexibility, but is still based on contorting your body into a bunch of unnatural positions.... pilates mostly focuses on leg strength, which is the thing that disippates the most when you get old. I have been using this book:

Bump.
Has anyone tried aerial yoga?
A mate teaches it and wants me to try it, it looks like a laugh.
Any actual benefits?

I regularly sit at a desk for school and i started to feel discomfort in my back this past year. Doing yoga consistently makes the discomfort disappear entirely. Its also pretty mindful to do in general. I just use the yoga with adrienne guides in my living room.

I'm not really old enough that my knees have gone to shit. But I imagine if it can work for back pains it's probs good for skate injuries.

For my back, I use a medicine ball and basically play catch (against a wall) with a basketball. Each toss, I lean backward over the medicine ball at a slightly different angle to stretch it and build strength in it. It seems to work so far

I don't know about the benefits of Aerial yoga- the only folks I've known to do it are circus or dance types.

Yoga in general can be really great, and I think it can fuck people up if they're going too hard, have an uninformed teacher, and push harder than the joints/muscles/fascia can take at any given time.

For what it's worth, I'm considered a 500 hour Certified Yoga Teacher, which means I've spent a lot of time and energy practicing and learning anatomy, fascia, about body types, theories, mindfulness. In my opinion, from working with and watching many body types, it's important to mix dynamic and static stretching, passive stretching with strength building stretch/activities if possible.

for my body, yoga alone isn't enough and is actually kind of detrimental because, if not running or cycling, I lose muscle and end up putting too much wear on the joints when trying to hold a pose. I promised some PALS a short video on foot maintenance/care, and if y'all are interested I can whip one up for the thoracic spine downward in a restorative tradition. Pelvic movement is sooooo crucial to our well being.

stay loose y'all.

this is all good info except cycling doesnít build muscle really, especially if youíre already doing it on top of skating. when i was still racing bikes i was in the gym 2x on top of my training regiment on the bike for that exact reason. itís too static of a motion and your body isnít doing much load bearing (which is why itís still a prime old people activity).

I should be more specific in noting the difference between strengthening v building muscle. riding an exercise bike or cruiser ala old people activity is great for lubrication and a stretch and certainly not working on building much if any muscle. Of course gears also make the machine do the work.

In speaking of my physical needs, I've ridden fixed for the past 13 years, minus 5 due to an unrelated neck injury, and in riding as a primary mode of transportation I've found it to be a complete body work out, with trunk coming in on the climb. I've never been stronger/leaner than when practicing Hatha yoga 4x week and riding 30+ miles 6 days/week on the fixie. But then maybe, with my focus on solely on endurance, rather than speed, which i imagine is crucial for messenger/racer, I'm seeing a different outcome. Not tryna argue right or wrong, just speaking my experience.

yes and no.. cycling (fixed included- i rode a fixed for a decent chunk of my time on the road as a courier) doesnít engage your hamstrings or work your core. not thatís itís gonna be an issue if youíre doing hatha that much, but iíd recommend running over cycling if youíre looking to work your whole body as opposed to just your cardiovascular system. w/ the added bonus of not losing bone density like you do on a bike. similarly not trying to argue and obviously not trying to diss cycling, but itís not a 1:1 with running like a lot of people think- ride a bike for a year and then go for a 3 mile run, your body will be screaming from lack of dealing with impact.

as a side note- this is why racing cyclists have to train 12-15 hour weeks at a minimum to gain fitness and break their collarbones like 2 times a decade.

I started doing this one pretty often around the time I worked for a FedEx warehouse due to it being physically taxing, but then I also started using it before I'd go skate since it only takes about 20 minutes.

However I just noticed this routine specifically for skaters from the same channel, might give it a try later on.
