This could sound contradictory, but the two are not mutually exclusive.

Yoga has so many benefits for the average bodybuilder, it’s unbelievable.

  • Firstly stretching the fascia promotes muscle growth.
  • Stretching the muscle fibres help contraction.
  • Increased mobility allow you to work the muscles through a greater range of motion.
  • Realigning the body is essential for symmetry and posture.
  • Strengthening the core without overdeveloping the obliques will give you rock hard abs and help prevent back injuries.
  • The relaxation techniques lower your cortisol levels and promote the release of serotonin.
  • Low cortisol level are also associated with the production of female and male hormones –testosterone
