Bryce Jameson's curator insight, January 12, 2014 11:31 PM

This article talks about sports medicine and basically what it"s about. Sport medicine is based off keeping people from getting injuries and than helping them get better if they do end up getting injured. This interests me because i want to learn about different areas of sports medicine so I can help others in their life with injuries. I like the idea of helping people get back to full strength after an injury.

Heart-Pumping Yoga

Heart-Pumping Yoga | Athletic Training | Scoop.it

Cardio Yoga Vinyasa flow is specifically designed to build heat and keep your heart rate up with a series of demanding standing poses, twists, and inversions held for long periods. I've burned up to 400 calories during a 90-minute class! And the breathing technique used in yoga—inhaling and exhaling fluidly and calmly through the nose—can improve your cardiovascular health.

 

Try this routine three to six times a week: Warm up with Sun Salutation, then do each of the other four poses, separating each one with a flow sequence consisting of Plank, Chaturanga, Upward-Facing Dog, and Downward-Facing Dog. So do Warrior II, the sequence, Warrior III, the sequence, and so on.
