Yoga can help your workouts
Are you tired of feeling the burn when you CrossFit? Yoga can actually help your muscles prepare for the next WOD. Lifting weights releases lactic acid, a waste product that sits in your muscles and causes that burning sensation you feel days later. Flushing out any excess lactic acid reduces your chances of experiencing any next-day muscle soreness and stiffness that could make your next workout more difficult. By simultaneously stretching muscles as it strengthens them, many yoga moves help flow more blood and oxygen into your muscles, washing out excess lactic acid before it becomes a problem.
