Yoga Poses to Build Strength for Running | Runner’s World Running Times

Here are segments from the great new article on Runner’s World:

Why strike a pose? Studies have shown that yoga squashes stress, aids weight loss, eases pain, helps people stick to an exercise routine, and even improves running times. The strength and flexibility you develop on the mat–namely in the core, quads, hamstrings, and hip flexors–can help you run more efficiently and stay injury-free, says Adam St. Pierre, a coach, biomechanist, and exercise physiologist for the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine.

Additionally, holding challenging poses builds tenacity that’ll pay off on the road. Lauren Fleshman, a two-time national outdoor 5000-meter champion, started practicing yoga after breaking her foot in 2008. But the poses gave her more than just foot strength: “Yoga helps me control my emotions while I’m in discomfort on the road,” she says. “Enduring an intense pose is a lot like enduring a long run or tempo run.”

For all the perks yoga offers, it still requires a cautious approach. Get too ambitious, and you could end up hurt and frustrated. This guide will make easing in easy.

Eli Sapharti: FAT Boy FIT Man

ELI SAPHARTI’S STORY: (from www.2minutestogreatness.com)

“At  42 years old and I am in the best shape of my life. Just a little over 4 years ago I was in the WORST shape of my life. Not only physically, but also emotionally and mentally. I believe these all go hand in hand.

In 2008 I had ballooned to almost 300 lbs standing at 6′ and my body fat percentage was well over 40%. My blood pressure was elevated, I felt tired all the time, if I walked a flight of steps I would lose my breath, my joints were hurting, and I was always getting some type of flu or cold.

Around March of 2008, shortly before the end of an almost 18 year marriage, I had what many would call an epiphany. One day I looked at myself in the mirror and couldn’t believe how unhealthy and just plain fat I had allowed myself to get. At that moment I knew I had to do something to change this downward spiral and begin setting the right example for my 3 children.  As I thought about past attempts to lose weight I realized that the “quick fixes” and fad diets I had tried, although successful short term, were not going to work if I wanted to make LIFE-LONG changes.

That is when I decided to try a different approach and came up with my ONE STEP AT A TIME = SUCCESS! approach and principles.   Small, consistent changes allowed me to acheive the body I have today 180 POUNDS with 10% body fat. I am also an avid runner having finished my last 10K in 47:43 and my last 5K in 22:01 and two half marathons in 1:49.  All being my personal best times. My drive and passion today is in helping inspire, motivate and teaching YOU that YOU too can achieve a healthy and strong body YOU can be proud of, no matter how much weight YOU have to lose.

JOIN TODAY and allow me to be your own personal weight loss coach.  When I was losing my weight I thought of how nice it would be to be able to get motivated, inspired, educated, pushed, pulled, recipes, eating plans, exercise plans, grocery lists, and someone who just cared enough to contact me on a regular basis to help me reach my goals.
