How To Incorporate Yoga Principles Directly Into Your Weight Training Workout

Begin each weight training workout with yoga breathing by slowly breathing in and out and focusing your mind completely on your body and let all other distractions fade away.  Inhale for a count of four, letting your stomach expand naturally and then open your rib cage, letting the air fill your lungs.  Pause briefly.  Slowly exhale for a count of four, closing the rib cage and expelling all the used air.

Begin your weight training exercises and as you are working out, concentrate on maintaining the rhythm of your yoga breathing and focus your mind directly into the muscle being worked and feel the concentration.  Become completely aware of how the muscle feels and visualize your muscle becoming lean and defined.
