The fitness world may have stumbled onto its new power couple: yoga and weight training are emerging as complementary – not conflicting – practices.
This routine, created by yoga instructor Kristin McGee, combines yoga postures and upper-body strength exercises into a fast-paced circuit. It’s easy to zone out during biceps curls, but adding the breathing and concentration of yoga brings a Zen-like focus to lifting, she says. It also sculpts a more balanced body: “yoga tends to emphasise pressing movements, like chaturanga, that work the muscles at the front of your body, but these combinations strengthen your back with rowing movements.” Three times a week, grab a pair of one-to two-kilo weights and move from one exercise to the next without rest.
