Hello Hip Huggers!!
I know I usually post my favorite workout, recipe, or run of the week on Fridays, but
I had to take a step back from working out at my usual intensity and allow my quad to heal up a bit.
So, the timimg and circumstance is perfect for Favourites Friday to include a Yoga Pose!
Or, at least I think I do.
My favorite body part
of all time to train and strengthen are my hamstrings.
I don’t know if that’s because deadlifts are my all time favorite exercise and that makes for stellar hams,
or because running makes then awful tight and need extra attention.
Either way, I love working them, and strengthening them via running, lifting, and yoga 🙂
Big muscles need lots of oxygen, so they are hard to train. But it must be done!
Don’t skimp on the Deadlifts, Squats, and Lunges, Hip Huggers! They’re your foundation!
Here are some of my Favorite Hamstring awakening Asanas.
Sugar Cane Pose
Crescent Moon Pose Variation
Hand to Big Toe Pose
Not all work and no play… when it’s time to give these hammies a rest…
Hollow Back Handstand
Yoga has absolutely seduced me and taken over Favorites Fridays!
Want even MORE yoga? I shared my nightly sweet dreams sequence here.
If you are having a hard tome getting rest,
these poses may just fix you up and get you into a slumber in no time!
Check it out, Hip Huggers!
Thanks for stopping by and have a Great Weekend!!
Question: What’s you favorite body muscle to train?

I am so not that flexible, that’s awesome. I try yoga but it never seems to stick. Maybe one day it will 🙂
Thank you! I think you should keep at it! Super beneficial to a runner, a little goes a long way. Remember, it’s YOUR practice! 🙂
