Just a quick thank you really - As well as traditional turbo Suffering I have for the first time in my life of 60+ years being doing Suff Yoga regularly since Christmas. 1-3 hours a week mostly Hip opening, hams, spine flexibility, balance and activation sessions and today when doing Open 30 (lovely film) I could do the whole thing in the drops WITHOUT any “soft tissue” discomfort - also a first. So with my new found Watts and a more aero position I should be flying - or least cycling a bit faster this spring
Good to know. I’ve determined to try to be better about incorporating the yoga sessions and not skipping them. Funny how I can find time for Team Scream, but am just too busy for the 15-20 minute yoga session.
Perhaps we need @abicarver to create a few Team Scream type yoga vids where she gets on the race radio and yells instructions at us. HALF MONKEY!!! HALF MONKEY!!! HALF MONKEY!!! YOU"RE ALMOST THERE!!!
@Glen.Coutts I’m having a hard time wrapping my brain around Abi yelling at all. “You have completed the Nine Hammers. Now you can move back into your day.”
Great, I didn’t realize @abicarver was on here, and now I’ve just confessed that I sometimes skip her sessions. I’M SORRY ABI!
It’s a nice restive habit - easy to fit in for me - it’s got to the point where missing a day feels a bit naughty!
Yes I agree. The more of the SUF Yoga I do, the better my SUF cycling workouts feel. Definitely a huge addition to the Sufferfest.
This is wonderful to hear! What you’re really saying is that consistent yoga makes you fly!
They say that the first step to positive behaviour change is awareness so it’s plain sailing from here!
You can do it! Just 3 more balancing half monkey spider planks! YOU’RE ALMOST THERE!! YOU’VE GOT THIS!!!
Nope, sorry @abicarver . Still not buying the yelling voice.
That’s ok. You can make it up to me!
I think I need to work on that!
I’m delighted to hear that you’re experiencing noticeable improvements in your performance
Access to yoga (and strength training which I haven’t used as gyms have stayed open where I live) was one of the things that made me choose sufferfest over other turbo apps. Well worth it!
+2 here (myself and my wife - so big thank you from her, too). We’re enjoying your 30-day yoga challenges, too. And I can fully confirm what guys said above, more comfort on drops thanks to those core sessions.
Where do you find these? The last ones I see in the Challenges tab are from 2019/20. What am I missing?
Actually, you miss nothing - I have those “old” challenges saved as PDF’s - so just printing it out and doing… And I’d love to see new ones, of course, too.
Same here, i noticed huge differences thanks to yoga sessions ; and not only when it comes to riding in the drops, but the TT position is getting easier too: more watts, more speed! Even standing up on those pedals now spontaneously comes with relaxed shoulders and elbows: i can now stand up pushing big watts for a longer time.
And the best thing is probably that these improvements are not detrimental to a generaly straighter posture in everyday life but tends to complement it.
My fav videos : hips and pelvis stability & improving posture I
Would you care sharing them via a link of some sorts?
I did the same as you for the January challenge, but since I’m a new subscriber to the yoga15 site, I’m missing out on all the old stuff.
