    Starting Yoga Soon

    Thats right, Im taking Yoga and the best part is....its FREE. My school has a physical education requirment and we need to take 2 classes to meet it. I signed up late and it was Yoga, weightlifting, raquetball or backpacking. Yoga seemed best cause maybe it will make me loosen up(I dont stretch enough). Next semester I want to sign up earlier though because they offer a Judo and Karate course. Id like to see how those are done. Judo would be cool and I could see myself having fun there but witht he Karate, I think Id probally challenge the teacher to Gong Sau.

    I dont know why in the hell you would take yoga over weightlifting.... When people lift weights they stretch before anyways....Sure yoga may "loosen you up" but then again why not just do stretches at home, and loosen up that way, without having to listen to the "bring your hands back to your 'dan-tien'" a million times. I definitely advise you to take Judo. Its a useful martial art, unlike its alternative (with several style acceptions eg. kyokushin etc.).

    The Judo class is full. I already weightlift and do fine with that. Yoga seemed like a good idea. It does help with flexability.

    Comparing weightlifting to yoga is like comparing Bob Sapp to Rickson Gracie.

    You've never done a 90 minute session of power yoga ever, have ya? :evil6:
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Congratulations. You will probably really enjoy yoga, especially since you're already doing strength training. How often does the class meet? If you are really interested in improving your flexibility, you should consider augmenting your yoga with other types of stretching throughout the week. Yoga is basically a big heaping dose of static-active stretching, which is dificult in its own right (no wonder people say yoga's hard!) and it shouldn't be the only type of stretching that you do.

    But I'm just some loon on the intarwebs...

    Check out Stretching Scientifically by Thomas Kurz for info on the different types of stretches (dynamic, static, active, passive). The book is a dense read, but the information is there, it's good, and here is a great web page where the author does Q & A which clears things up a bit: http://www.stadion.com/question_stretching.html

    Im planning to enroll in power yoga too for this semester for uber cheapness.

    Something to loosen stiff muscles after a week of bjj. It should be cool.
