Okay there are two articles regarding Spine Health within T-nation, Mr. Spine and Mr. Spine 2. These two articles cover several things including how you should not do any sort of full spinal bending immediately after getting out the bed as it could cause more harm than good.
My question is does this rule out morning workouts and yoga? The article doesn’t go into much detail as to a specific time frame after waking up that full spine bending becomes okay and with my schedule the way it is now I’d really like to know as I’d have to workout before work rather than after.
The same could be asked of yoga. There is a lot of full spine bending involved in some positions but I have to wonder whether or not its a good idea or not to do this first thing in the morning.
