NFL Player Brent Celek Focuses On Yoga And Foam Roller Exercises - EliteTrendHQ.com
From Football Players to Meditation Enthusiasts, Yoga and Foam Rollers Help All in Different Ways
According to Jen Murphy of The Wall Street Journal, Celek practices yoga and takes Pure Barre classes (a combination of yoga, Pilates and light weightlifting) during the long football offseason, giving his body a much-needed break from the rigorous and debilitating grind of powerlifting and other strenuous drills.
Instead of working to bulk up in the weight room, the NFL star turns his focus on improving his flexibility and maintaining his muscle health by engaging in yoga, eating right, owning the proper equipment and having a positive mindset.
In addition to his exercises, which include high-intensity, low-repetition weights, resistance training via bands and wooden rods and cardio activity such as biking, Celek utilizes deep-tissue massages.
The Eagles star says that massages are critical to feeling in top shape. He told Murphy that he tries "to use the foam roller as much as I can."
Celek's routine is to sit on the ground with the roller underneath his hamstring and roll it the length of his muscles. He then moves it to outside his thigh by placing his left hip on the roller and crossing his right leg over the left. He'll do this for a bit then switch legs in order to get the most efficient massage.
You can easily do this at home with a combination of Elite Trend HQ products. The Premium Yoga mat costs just $38 are great looking and extremely comfortable, gripping the floor with ease and providing cushion for your body as you do various exercises—such as the one inspired by Celek listed above.
The mat is perfect for yoga enthusiasts of all experience levels, as its cozy surface will allow you to perform the most simple of exercises to complicated poses with ease, while also providing a 5-milimeter barrier between you and the ground.
Don't forget the Rumble Foam Roller for just $35, as it is essential to a proper deep tissue massage. This roller is the class of the industry, made with durable ABS pipe that will far outlast the standard PVC pipe-based rollers.
This roller is essential to proper body upkeep and alleviates soreness stemming from strenuous exercise, poor posture and more.
Brynn Fessette, psychical therapist for the noted Finish Line Physical Therapy center in New York, sung the praises of massage rollers like the Rumble Foam Roller, telling Murphy that they increase blood flow and "allows for proper healing, increased soft-tissue mobility and relief from muscle pain and soreness."
The most important thing is making sure you take care of your body. Celek's head coach, Chip Kelly, gave his players some very basic, but very useful advice during his first year in charge, as per Murphy:
"This year, coach talked a lot about getting more sleep and eating right," Celek says. "I never felt better than I did this season and I want to keep up those habits."
Establishing your own good habits is a wonderful thing and will have you feeling in the best shape of your life. If you desire to make yoga, Pilates or any other sort of physical and mental exercises a part of that improvement, it's a good idea to get started now.
It's an investment into your health, future and overall well being, which is arguably the best venture one can make.
Brent Celek is just one of the numerous successful stars who has incorporated yoga into his daily life and is setting an example for people everywhere to follow. Make sure you purchase good quality rollers and yoga mats when you are ready to begin your journey towards a healthier lifestyle.
