My sister swears by it for strength and core training. Says it also helps with just keeping your joints strong and pain free. I know diet has a huge effect on inflammation but I guess it makes sense to keep things limber. Anyone here done it before and does it help?

Yes and yes. Helps me at 6’ 3 I have to strep everyday. When my wife talked me into I was like no way. Hunt

From: Scar Finga

Yep, and also Tai Chi. I would suggest both. you can Youtube both of them and do it in your living room. For me , yoga is great for stretching and flexibility,y Tai chi is really good for learning how to control your muscles and breathing. You will feel like you did a whole body workout, because you did! both when done properly will give you a really strong core.

I do a 10 minute "Sun Salutations" Yoga stretch daily, before my treadmill with the pack on. I've noticed an improvement in flexibility overall.

Getting older and stiffer...gotta get creative!

From: Franklin
26-Dec-18
OH boy....what`s next....a "KY or Astroglide" thread....lol

26-Dec-18
I have for a long time. However I do that, and Tai Chi, but I do it in the pool. I am a weekly swimmer, and do extensive weight and stretch work outs, all in the water, plus lung exercises in deep water called UP / Downs.........

I am 68, and it really keeps my core, in good shape, and cuts down on aches and pains tremendously.......

I would be considered a water nut..... I had a Air Force Air Rescue PJ, show me a lot of stuff to do in the water,,,,, it has saved my aging body a lot...... Of course I can not do what he does, ha ha,,,,, but he convinced me, water is the place to train

Ms Jones did Yoga!

From: JSW
26-Dec-18
Yes. I do about 20 minutes of yoga before I run or lift weights. I have lower back and neck issues and there are a number of yoga exercises that really help. My daughter is a yoga instructor and I did a full hour in her class over the weekend. The older you get the harder it is to stay in shape.

It's become part of my life. A lifetime of playing too hard, working construction and 2 herniated discs years ago and yoga/stretching saved me from surgery. It works.

Hot yoga I haven’t looked at the clock like that since college chemistry. It’s tough and really really great for you

Hoping it helps my back flexibilty and if it does anything for my shitty ass knees it will be worth it

Awesome, thanks for the input guys. And I’m sure the scenery ain’t horrible either!

26-Dec-18
Lungshot, no... It's not...

Day one is rough and it really shows how much you cannot flex and stretch. Further along, the results are amazing.

The breathing exercises also help your bowhunting skills under pressure.

You should never assume things, LUNG$HOT!

I wouldn’t sign up for classes in a studio too close to a Walmart.

From: LUNG$HOT

Lmao! I’ll keep that in mind t-roy.

You want breathing exercises,,,, get in the water.... start out at 8 feet,,,, hands behind the back, down you go, hold and kick up,,,,,, 4 sets of 15.... and continue as the weeks progress, till you can do it at 12 feet,,,,,, I can assure you nothing is better for your lungs........

What to know why I know that is true? Last October the surgeons from Cleveland National Heart Institute and the Mayo Clinic, were at Frodert Hospital in Milwaukee, and giving me the greatest gift of life, working on my heart.......

the next day after 11 hour operation, the nurse comes in with a nebulus for me to breathe in,,,, he said try to hit this mark,,, well I was beyond that,,,, and in 3 days I was done with it,,, the surgeons asked me, how I kept my lungs so clear and strong and I told them, what I have learned, from water training......

The head surgeon, said to me "swimmers survive, don't ever quit"

I am truly blessed

Just trying to perform a public service, APauls!

I wouldn’t want anyone going into this endeavor with unrealistic expectations! Besides, it might be a motivator for guys to get to class early to make sure they get a spot in the FRONT row!

From: Dooner
26-Dec-18
I wouldn't want to be in the front row; rather the 2nd or 3rd row. This topic came up in mule deer camp. Try sitting for 2-4 hours, and then making a shot from your knees. So,.. we were talking about the benefits of yoga. However, tragically, we were distracted by images of yoga pants. This discussion went no further.

My wife in yoga pants is proof that God loves me. Amen.

t-roy... that reminds me of a moment when Lana and myself ran into town to get some supplies back in November. We stopped at a local burger joint (Sonic), which has car hops. Well, we weren't in any hurry so we ate in the truck after our order came out. Meanwhile, the carhops (young gals) were busy as bees delivering food to other customers. One carhop in particular was kind of heavy (chunky), and while going back inside, she dropped something off of her carrying tray. It was directly in front of my truck and less than 20 feet away. When she bent over (without bending her knees) lets just say, her yoga pants did the screen door stretch. The only thing different than the pic that was posted above and what my wife and I witnessed was the thong was at least black. I looked over at my wife, with my mouth full of cheeseburger and mumbled... "gawd damn, you see that?!" She replied... "she did that on purpose". LOL

At 74, I have a simple routine. About four days a week, I walk at 4.0 pace (15-minute mile) for two miles on a varied incline. I do light weight-high reps upper body stuff and either an hour of seniors yoga or water exercises in the pool. Every day, I do a lot of stretching for lower back. Yoga has probably helped me as much as anything I do. I especially like the blueberry and mixed berry flavors.

From: BULELK1

I really enjoy my twice a week yoga class.

Granted I go less from Sept 1st thru mid December 'cause I am out hunting some state/species thru out our Rocky Mnt states, I do miss it though.

At first I got the cold shoulder as I am the only man in the class with all ages of women.

Now, they all want to know about my travels, getting to have some free elk meat, and outdoor travel pix, plus getting Remodel idea's that I share with them, so it has resulted in a very good experience for me and it is free with my Gym membership.

Plus, I would pedal my eAssist Bike up to class in the spring/summer/fall and it got lot's of attention too......

I just wear sweat pants and use an old backpacking sleeping pad for my mat.

Give it a go fella's-------->

Good luck, Robb

PS. It really does loosen me up and stretching is so very important for all muscles.

Getting ready to start a yoga regimen soon. I hate it, it is super hard for someone with poor flexibility, but it is one of the best exercises you can do to help your overall fitness and health. My flexibility and balance both improved considerably after I started yoga.

For those that think it is whimpy... Give it a go and you will realize it is extremely difficult and if you give it your all, 30 minutes of yoga will absolutely crush you.

I hope you guys that attend Yoga all realize that every single chick in the class thinks you're a bunch of PERVERTS, whether it's true or not. They know why you're there, despite your claims of improved flexibility and discovering your inner spirit and all that other touchy feely crap. They know..;)

I do it but only at home. Mixed with some Tai Chi and pushups and whatever else I dream up at the moment. I used to be a regular at the Chiropractor but haven't been in a long time. You only get out what you put in and when I hit my 50s I found out I better start putting more in. I still drink and do not eat correctly but I maintain a decent weight and can bend over and touch the floor without much effort . Another plus is that I sleep a lot better.

From: Scar Finga

Same here man, I am more creaks, cracks and groans then not:/ Definitely need to get back into Tai Chi, I really enjoy it. Yoga is good to, but I don't go to gyms, I just do it in the living room.

From: Rut Nut

I've done Yoga. You can have it. I have a regular stretching routine I do about 3-4 days per week(been doing it since H.S. About 10-15 min and I am good. Anything more than that, and for ME it's a waist of time. Rather use that time lifting weights or doing cardio.

My youngest daughter got into yoga sometime after she left home. She enjoyed it so much that she has become an instructor. Her flexibility and upper body strength has increased tremendously. She has tried to get me to do some flexibility exercises which would definitely help my hunting but I'm too lazy to learn. Heck, some of them would enable me to scratch my back without finding a tree like an old bear. ;)

Yoga is amazing. Tougher ones are definitely a workout. It helps with flexibility and stretching. Relaxation etc.

Very very very very good.

Anybody mind sharing their stretching routines? I do some yoga, but not everyday. Stretching might be a good idea everyday though.

Google ROMWAD. Stands for Range of Motion Workout of the Day.

All stretching

From: BULELK1

Yes----->

Size of the class makes a big difference.

The one I go to has between 8-10 of us on a normal morning, right now with school out for x-mas, it has grown to 12-18 most mornings.

I like the smaller group/class.

Good luck, Robb
