In this follow-up episode, I sit down with Chris Isom of Isom Fitness ( · · ), former professional basketball player, competitive yoga athlete, and fitness expert, and continue our discussion on yoga’s impact on our athletic careers, specifically focusing on the topic of building muscle. This episode focuses on our perceptions of yoga and muscle AFTER starting yoga. We talk about what we’ve learned thanks to yoga, how it changed our perception of fitness in general, the changes we made to our training habits, and the effects yoga had on our fitness. We’ll cover 5 topics in particular:
- Weight training (weights and yoga)
- Soreness (recovery)
- Flexibility (and other neglected aspects of fitness)
- Injuries (injury-prevention)
- Perceptions / assumptions about the relationship between yoga and muscle (how it helps build muscle)
Enjoy! Learn more about Chris Isom of Isom Fitness on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.
