Post-Cardio Yoga Poses to Speed Up Recovery

The guys from Dirty Yoga are back with some more expert tips.

Cardio is one of those things you have to do, and is made up of repetitive movements that constantly contract your muscles—so you’re compounding that contraction with every step you take, which means you need more intense stretching after cardio than other kinds of workouts. The good thing is your muscles are warmer after a cardio session than after anything else so there’s no better time for that intense stretch. Each of these stretches prepares you for the next stretch, and each ups the ante from the one before. This stretch has been designed for runners and for men, but can be used, very effectively, after any form of cardio, even if you’re neither.
