Yoga Workout for Athlete

This is for all you jocks out there — you guys need yoga, too, just as much as the rest of us! If you’re an athlete you probably know that yoga can improve performance by enhancing your focus, breathing, and endurance. Not to mention alleviating soreness and reducing recovery time.

Friends of mine who were high school and college football players, soccer players, runners, cyclists — you name it — now have problems with their bodies. A lot of them can’t touch their toes anymore! They should take a cue from the NFL players who use yoga .

The three major areas I hear the most complaints about from my jock friends are: hamstrings, quads, and shoulders.
Here’s a short sequence from to get you started digging into those big muscle groups. We’ll start slow. The most ‘on a solo mission here, you’re only competing with yourself. Come on, guys, you know it’s great for you!

The Sequence

1. Start standing with your feet shoulder distance apart.  Create a slight bend in the knees. Reach your arms up high and fold over your legs. (You’ll feel this in the hammies.)  Grab your elbows to relieve some tension in your neck and shoulders, or take hold of the outside of your calves to help fold yourself toward your legs. Breathe into this forward bend for five breaths. Now, reach your arms back up and fold over your legs again. Repeat this three times.

Other options for the arms: You can try grabbing the back your neck with your hands and pulling the crown of your head straight down to the floor. Or: Interlace the hands behind the back and work the arms over your head for a nice shoulder stretch.

2. Step your left leg back into a Runners Lunge, bringing that back knee down and then placing both your hands on your right knee. If you want more of a challenge, you can bend your back foot up and pull it toward your body for a nice quad stretch.

3. Stand up with your legs in Warrior 1 — spread wide apart with the front leg bent, foot facing straight ahead and the back leg straight, foot at a 45-degree angle — and interlace your hands behind your back. Now lean forward and bring your torso to the inside of your front leg. Extend your arms over your head to open the shoulders. Hold for a few breaths and then:

4. Bring both hands to the floor and straighten your front leg, square off your hips and hang your torso over your front leg keeping the quads pulled up. Hold for a few breaths. announces worldwide fitness and calisthenics equipment licensing deal with athlete Frank Medrano

The print component of Diabetes is distributed within today’s Home and Business subscription of the Toronto Star, with a circulation of approximately 230,433 copies and an estimated readership of 622,169. The digital component is distributed nationally through a vast social media strategy and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets. To explore the digital version of the campaign, click here.

The publication shares Sébastien Sasseville’s journey of running the entire 7500km breadth of Canada in an extraordinary nine-month long solo expedition with the aim of raising awareness. He notes, “My one hope is that people will know that with the right diet, the right tools, and the right attitude, they can pursue their dreams, even with diabetes.”

A Toronto-based team led by Dr. Daniel Drucker, Senior Investigator at Mount Sinai Hospital’s Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, has discovered innovative classes of type 2 diabetes therapies that will change the landscape for diabetes sufferers struggling to manage their condition. “Patients now have a great ability to manage diabetes effectively while avoiding hypoglycemia and weight gain,” and his discoveries have led to two completely new treatment methods. An editorial by Dr. Jan Hux, Chief Science Officer at the Canadian Diabetes Association, shares information about the Diabetes Charter for Canada and its aim to empower Canadians with diabetes and their caregivers, and to promote an environment that will support optimal health outcomes for them.
