We love this! Whoever said yoga wasn’t a ‘workout’ may end up eating these guys’ rugby shorts. Over the pond, in the soaky pastures of Connacht, Ireland, professional rugby players are submerged in pre-season conditioning. On the regimen this year? A hefty helping of ‘strongman’ activities including log-lifting, swimming and yoga! Yes indeedy, the rough and tumble rugbies are seeking yoga for strength and flexibility.
Now, we get pretty excited about yoga in sports, but this… is RUGBY. Macho manly, tough-guy primal-infused Rugby. Nice.
Yoga has basically entered the field of cross-training, and we won’t argue! did you see that guy? –>

Back in the day (date will not be provided) while I was in undergrad, the football players were required to participate in ballet and yoga as part of their off-season training! : )
Amazing issues here. I am very happy to see your post. Thank you so much and I’m having a look ahead to touch you. Will you please drop me a e-mail?
