Overall strength can play a role in the execution of proper form, but over time, as strength increases you will notice that the bodies ability to get into the correct position is determined by mobility and flexibility. When we see a breakdown in form, rarely is it a byproduct of our body’s natural ability to perform such a movement, but mobility (range of motion in the joints) or flexibility (length of the muscles).This is why WOD Recovery Yoga is so crucial to a functional fitness athletes recovery and overall training. Better mobility and flexibility means better form and improved performance. Stretching is never fun but just like doing snatch drills or muscle up progression work, it’s necessary to get better.WOD Recovery Yoga provides functional fitness athletes with the ability to take their recovery into their own hands. With 70 yoga postures, all of which are accessible to any age and fitness level, athletes now have a set of stretches useful for their post WOD recovery.There are a few ways athletes can use this book First, each yoga posture, contains a list of functional fitness movements that this particular stretch helps you recover from. Second, in the table of contents, there is a section where the poses are organized by muscle group so if you find one area of the body is sore or tight from a previous workout, you can choose some of the stretches related to that area of the body. Lastly, there is a list of the top 20 most common functional fitness movements, like deadlifts or box jumps, with a sequence 5-6 yoga postures you can use as recovery.Stretching post WOD is something we as athletes take for granted.
