LeBron Would Like to Show You His ‘Salamba Sarvangasana’

James is on his Yoga game: “When James first came into the NBA at the age of 18 he didn’t even tape his ankles, sometimes ate McDonald’s an hour before tipoff and his main use for ice was cooling beverages. As he’s matured, part out of necessity and part out of pride, he’s serious about preparing and maintaining his body for the rigors of an NBA season. That includes a wide range of measures from diet and recovery techniques to the Vajrasana, Virasana and the particularly stunning Salamba Sarvangasana. They are yoga poses and they are also an essential part of James’ routine every week. ‘Yoga isn’t just about the body, it’s also about the mind and it’s a technique that has really helped me,’ James said. ‘You do have to focus because there’s some positions that can really hurt you at times if you aren’t focused and breathing right.’”

    When I saw Salamba Sarvangasana I swore it was going to be about some Serbian cat that Danny Ferry found on youtube who could play SG next year.

    Agreed. Yoga is great for recovery, flexibility, and strength.

    Not surprised by this at all. Yoga provides tremendous benefits, and helps in both recovery from injuries and in being less suceptible to injuries in the first place.

    The only people who do yoga are housewives who are being neglected by their husbands. And I thought that Kobe was a biatch…. Sheeeeyit.
