Find Out Which Yoga Type Decreases Body Fat and Makes You Stronger!
Yoga involves holding static postures and performing slow, controlled movements.
It helps build muscle endurance, motor control and balance.
Brian Tracy and Cady Hart from Colorado State University in Fort Collins found that young adults who practiced Bikram yoga (also known as Hot Yoga) for eight weeks (three 1.5 hour sessions per week) showed increases in deadlift strength, back, hamstring, and shoulder flexibility, and decreased body fat.
They did not improve in handgrip strength or cardiovascular fitness.
Yoga improves strength, power, flexibility and body composition, and is a valuable component in a comprehensive program. (Journal Strength Conditioning Research, 27: 822-830,2013)
