The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga: An Integrated Approach to Strength, Flexibility, and Focus

by <.---—>Sage Rountree

Yoga makes good athletes better. This time-honored discipline imparts flexibility, balance, and whole-body strength, creating improvements in an athlete’s form, efficiency, and power. In addition, yoga’s attention to concentration and breath awareness improves mental focus and mental endurance-hidden assets that become especially important at the end of a long training session or race. In The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga, yoga instructor, endurance athlete, and coach Sage Rountree explains the benefits that yoga can bring to every training program. With hundreds of color photographs featuring more than 100 poses, this book treats common problem areas to make athletes stronger in their sport. Rountree helps athletes see progress from just 10 minutes of yoga each day. In an engaging and easy-to-follow style, The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga presents:

  • warm-up and cool-down routines for workouts
  • simple poses to specifically target areas of inflexibility and overuse
  • breath and meditation exercises
  • different types of yoga for each phase of training
  • recommendations for intensity and volume of yoga workouts throughout the training year
  • a 15-minute DVD featuring warm-up and cool-down routines for everyday workouts

    Rountree’s applications for training and racing ease the introduction to yoga, making it practical and accessible for all athletes. One Tri recommends The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga as a great tool for improving your core and preparing your body for endurance sports of all types.

    “Endurance athletes generally have poor flexibility, core strength, balance, and posture. Improving these can really change performance for the better. The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga is a great resource to get you on the path to better training and racing.”-Joe Friel, founder of Joe Friel’s Ultrafit and author of The Triathlete’s Training Bible, The Cyclist’s Training Bible, and The Mountain Biker’s Training Bible

    The Athlete\’s Guide to Yoga is a great resource for athletes. Finally, we have an explanation of how to integrate yoga practice into daily training and within different training cycles. The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga is well laid out and easy to follow, and it includes pose adjustments to help athletes overcome sport-specific tightness. I’ve been practicing yoga to complement to my triathlon training for the past 8 years. Now I have a great tool to take on the road when I can’t make it to my usual class.”-Samantha McGlone, 2nd Place 2007 Hawaii Ironman World Championships and 2006 Ironman 70.3 World Champion, 2004 Olympian
