    I want to find out more about ddp yoga, but want to hear from genuine experiences off any of you guys rather than just take it at its word.

    I know great things have been done by jake and razor with it, but i'm sure being present in the same house as the man gets a personalised regime.

    What was the process like of getting into it and what are your thoughts on it?

    Me and my gut are very interested in this...

    Haven't tried it but it sure looks the part. It appears to focus on muscle endurance and strength.

    If you head to the gym and try to lift heavy weight you can hurt yourself pretty fast - muscle damage, joint damage. Simply because you can find momentum to 'move' a weight you shouldn't be lifting. Lots of people do bodybuilding exercises that are a waste of time unless your bodybuilding!

    From what I have seen of DDPs workout he does things slowly, no momentum, so it will work the muscle hard rather than working joints as i mention above. Also looks like it gets you working multiple muscles at once.

    I'm keen to hear about the results people have got as I am looking at something to do at the weekend at home (The gym I go to during the week is beside work but 90kms away from home)

    Being doing it for months it's low impact can be done at home and shows results in very little time,Defines and strengthens muscles like biceps calves and core,can be adjusted to fit various levels aswell

    Not sure how it works for weight loss personally as I had already lost 8 and a half stone when I started it by walking so I switched to it to keep weight down after walking got boring,I have since gained a stone (13 up to 14) since but the weight gained can be attributed to the gain of muscle I'd say

    It can give you a gym type look if you stick with it without gym hassle

    I've lost weight before by simply cutting out crap food, but that was like half a stone. Fair play to you.


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,788 ✭✭✭✭krudler


    I do it, find its great for flexbility, I work in an office so when you sit on your ass for 8hrs a day you need something to work out the kinks and tone up, really enjoying it so far.

    How long have you been doing it, krudler?

    Mainly stick to the long ones like diamond cutter and put red hot core at the end of what ever I do


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,101 ✭✭✭brianblaze


    I do it to compliment my Jiu Jitsu and lifting. It's good fun, and it's great for flexibility!


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,788 ✭✭✭✭krudler


    Eh nearly 2 months now? give or take, the workouts are for different things, one is for building strenght/muscle, another for toning, another for your core etc. there's a 12 minute abs one i do at the end and thats good, I find doing crunches and situps hurt my back but its a good alternative, you'll be really feeling it the next day. Having the yoga positions and moves renamed to be wrestling related is a cool touch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,101 ✭✭✭brianblaze


    And that's not a bad thing....

    Never do sit ups, do planks and the like... Sit ups will mess up your spine.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,600 ✭✭✭✭CMpunked


    So which one have all you guys got out of these?

    https://www.store.ddpyoga.com/

    I don't expect this to be a one shot thing, i'm not stupid, its not a "Do this and your weight will drop off and you will gain mass of muscle enough to take down a sow all while still eating take aways every night and chocolate." But I would like to see what it can do in complementary to what I'm doing at the moment.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,125 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    Crunches/sit ups should be avoided in general but especially for anyone starting out. Most people do them wrong.

    Can anyone give a good idea of what execrcises are in the programme? Are they simply the type of body weight exercises you would see can find easy enough on you tube but put into a routine so you know what exercises work well together?


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,170 ✭✭✭✭B.A._Baracus


    This is what DDP yoga can do:



    Normally I am cynical when it comes to viewing what a 'product' can do for you but this seems 100% legit. It's amazing what his Yoga can do.
