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!
I’ll be performing this practice Inversion Free but you do you. 👉 No props needed, unless you want ‘em. 🌟 Good for Experienced Level. 💫 Minimal cues are given so you can focus on feeling the feels. ✨ Inversion Free means no downward facing dog, no head stand, no poses where the head goes below the heart. Great for those with glaucoma, cardiac issues, vertigo, acid reflux, or if you just don’t like going upside down.
Enjoy! Be well.
Remember to breathe.
🙏🏼Namaste my friends🙏🏼
