Squat Recovery Yoga – Stretch Out the Soreness

Squat Recovery Yoga – Stretch Out the Soreness

Inversion Free Options

Did you do too many squats?
Or try an online Cardio Leg video like I did and now you can hardly walk?

Yeah, I feel your pain.
Been there, done that. 😥🥴

This Squat Recovery Yoga Practice is designed to stretch out the soreness in the places that hurt after too many squats.
Inner thighs, hamstrings, hips, glutes, and of course, the quads.
Hip openers and leg stretches are priority with longer holds to allow the muscles to ease out of pain.

Here’s why that soreness, caused by lactic acid build up, rears it’s ugly self:

“A temporary buildup of lactic acid can be caused by vigorous exercise if your body doesn’t have enough available oxygen to break down glucose in the blood. This can cause a burning feeling in the muscle groups you’re using.” Source

With that said—this is why breathing is SO important when you workout; yoga or otherwise. 😉

Do this practice daily until you feel better.
Happy stretching!


DETAILS:

💫 Minimal cues are given so you can focus on feeling the feels.

Got more time? Try this next: Low Body Stretch

20 min Lower Body Stretch for Flexibility

Tight hips and hamstrings will LOVE this 20 min practice.  Flexibility in the hips, hamstrings, quads and the lower body in general is super important to feel good in your body.  

20 min a day keep the tightness away! 😀

Stretch in the morning, lunch time, evening or anytime in-between.  

Good for post-run stretch, 

Great for cooling yourself down & de-stressing,

Excellent if you’ve been sitting all day.

No props needed UNLESS you want ‘em or need ‘em.  If you have tight hips and legs, then I recommend using Blocks or like items.  

Enjoy! Be well.

Remember to breathe.

🙏🏼Namaste my friends🙏🏼
