MLB Star Adam Lind Expects Career Year Due To Yoga
Toronto Blue Jays Star Using Yoga To Prepare for Season
He told Ken Fidlin of the Toronto Sun: "My goal pretty much ever since I started playing full seasons up here is 20 homers and 80 RBIs. I've said before that if you do that you'll always continue to have a job."
That job has gotten easier due to his yoga routine. According to Mark Inabinett of Al.com, Lind took up yoga after the 2012 season in an effort to combat lingering pain in his back.
It was clearly effective, as he went on to smash 23 home runs, generate 67 RBIs and compile a .288 batting average the next year.
Now Lind is taking his commitment to this ancient discipline to the next level, having hired a personal yoga instructor after that incredible comeback campaign in 2013.
Fidlin caught up with the 30-year-old to talk about how his instructor aided him in one-on-one sessions:
"It was especially good in the second half of the off-season when she had gotten to understand my body a little better and was able to figure out ways to get to the spots that have bothered me the most last summer."
It'll be interesting to see if that will translate to more success on the diamond, but either way Lind is better off for having adopted yoga as an exercise and wellness routine.
While having a personal trainer can be a major boost to those who practice yoga, it isn't necessary to get the most out of it. Anyone, from professional baseball players to those who work in cubicle, can strike a pose and it requires very little to do so.
Those who are looking to improve their fitness just need to find some space, a yoga mat and have the right mindset to begin and maintain a regiment. Mats can be found at respected vendors such as Elite Trend HQ and amazon for as little as $38 and are just about the only piece of equipment that is truly necessary.
Lind is just one of the many success stories brought about by yoga and there are certain to be many more to come as more people begin practicing.
