You might have seen advanced yoga practitioners can do those crazy stuff like super flexible and super strong poses and post on Instagram and YouTube. But often people don’t realize is that how much they train their muscles and condition to be like that. So, if regular person try to do something crazy poses like that, they can get injury easily.
