The endurance and flexibility, which the practice of yoga encourages, are the perfect accompaniment to the strength and power that CrossFit encompasses. Practitioners of each discipline are discovering that by combining them, they can experience increased performance in both. So, without further ado, here are the main benefits you can expect from combining these 2 types of exercise.

CrossFit athletes need great flexibility in their joints and muscles. Practicing yoga can gradually increase your range of movement in a gentle, controlled way. A regular daily yoga routine stretches ligaments and lubricates joints to give greater flexibility, and a complete yoga session takes all of your joints through their entire range of movement - squeezing and soaking cartilage with blood, oxygen, and nutrients. Better flexibility and mobility can then reduce your risk of injury and can increase your CrossFit performance, so when you call on your body to do something extreme in your CrossFit training, you reduce the risk of hurting yourself.

Improving your flexibility and mobility can also help prevent the development of conditions such as arthritis and chronic pain. You will find that the increased flexibility you get from practicing yoga will help to take your back squats, overhead squats, squat clean, deep ring dips, and other movements to the next level. Certain yoga poses are particularly good for increasing ankle mobility, which is essential in many CrossFit movements.
