So I need some hardcore fitness advice about Yoga, and I figured what better place to come to then a website about videogames! ...or I'm too lazy to make a forum account on yoga websites... so hear my story and indulge in my laziness if you so desire! I bet there are a lot of people out there in a similar boat as me.
Long story short: I need to do Yoga... or at least some kind of serious regimented stretching routine.
I spend a lot of time working-out, both indoors and outdoors and my profession requires me to be very physical and engage in a lot of strenuous activity. I'm in excellent physical shape both in terms of strength and cardio, but due to my own ignorance and dislike of wasting time stretching I've essentially lost a large portion of my natural flexibility to the point where its starting to impact my training in other areas and I've finally clued in that I should probably fix it now before I end up seriously hurting myself down the road.
My question is for those of a high fitness level who practice yoga or some form of efficient stretching routine to share their wisdom with me.
Youtube and other places are FULL of these kinds of videos, but the problem I'm having is that I find it kind of overwhelming and a lot of the content I see is either way above my current level or geared for less active people who just want to feel good about themselves. I'm not so much interested in the spiritual side of things as I am in the raw physical benefits. IE I want to be able to touch my toes and lift my leg up at a 45 degree angle instead of 20 lol.
I'm okay with putting the time and the effort in, I want to work hard and I want to be efficient with my time. If there are any duders out there that can enlighten me with something that fits the bill please share!
I prefer something in a video format that I can use as a workout, at least to get started until I gain the knowledge to manage myself.
Thanks for your time! ...and uh... go videogames go!
