YRG was started by Dr. Craig Allen. DDP got involved and became it’s spokesperson. Eventually it was rebranded to YRG Yoga. For the past. Probably the most influential, and unexpected, guru of guys yoga is ex-pro wrestler Diamond Dallas Page. But does his program work?. But DDP Yoga (originally called YRG Fitness, or Yoga for Regular Guys) didn’t really take off until after the now legendary Arthur Boorman.

Yoga for regular guys? : ddpyoga
And in this incarnation, I like it. I’m a very overweight diabetic who desperately needs to get fit, and Gys was impressed by the story of disabled Gulf War veteran Arthur, who used YRG to not only lose lbs but regain the use of his body after being told he’d never walk without crutches again.
Well, Arthur is one of the guys demonstrating the moves in the book and on the DVD. If he can do it, so can I. Sure the book is firmly aimed This book and the DVDs bought separately got me to try yoga. Sure the book is firmly aimed at the WWE crowd, complete with looking down the cleavage of the yoga babes pictured.
But you know what, it works! I’ve just done a session with my wife, and we both feel like we’ve done a full workout at the gym, with tight muscles and rock hard biceps and thighs. But tyhere’s none of the pain, just the gain. Page recommends good, sensible nutrition that fits well with my needs as a diabetic, and I think I’ve found just what I need to get healthy. That outweighs the groans provoked by Page’s redneck humor. I have heard it all from people yoga is for girls, it won’t make me sweat, I don’t want to sit around chanting.
I think it is great for DDP to be leading the charge to get more people ghys yoga. The book is grest, DDP is his usual self, talking “guy-eese”, to get through to the meat heads in the gym that rather then judt swelling their muscles with lacyic acids, they csn actually lengthen, and strengthen their muscles at the same time. Yes like all yoga it starts with the breathing.
In the words I have heard it all from people yoga is for girls, it won’t make me sweat, I don’t want to sit around chanting. In the words of RZ “i have been breathing all my life”. However many of us shallow our breathing to increase the quantity of our breaths rather then getting quality oxygen into our bodies.
YRG will give anyone the basics they need to start yoga, as DDP reuglar it id a life stule change not just a training program. An excellent book for beginers and even intermediate students of regulat. With well constructed workouts. Yes their will be a couple of Diamond cutters in it too.
Hope there will be a follow up book. Nov 24, Andrea Amadei rated it it was amazing. Jul 16, Steven R. Some books have an immediate impact vuys your life. It changes your way of thinking, your goals, and your focus. This is one of those books. I started implementing stuff from the regulr before finishing it.
I also started back at the beginning and reread it straight through a second time. Fortunately I happened upon the book by chance. I found out that it started with a book. And being a bibliophile I had to check out the book.
So I got a copy and started read and rereading. I have been back and forth through the book a number of times in a short time. The book has a hilarious forward by Rob Zombie. The sections in the book are: If you’re a couch potato you can start, if you’re active you can take it to the next level, if you’re an athlete it will only help improve your game and performance!
At the time of writing this I have been doing Yoga with DDP intermittently for 2 months and then every day for sdp days, I am dxp 17lbs and feel better than I have in a long time. In that time my shoulder that has bothered me off and on for years because of a torn rotator cuff is gusy than it has ever been.
My mood and energy is way up. And I have talked a number of people dp giving it a try. So far they have all loved it. DDP states that he wrote the book to help regular guys and regular gals.
You can read success stories, join groups and forums, and reular is a continuous online life chat on the go. The book features 15 people showing the moves, many of the moves are in the book more than once in different routines and programs, often with different people showing them.
These 15 people range from retired military, to musicians. All kinds of people have seen improvement in their health and life through following DDP’s programs. Musicians, retired wrestlers, pro wrestlers, pro ball players, and regular guys and gals like me and you!

McEvoy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Feb 13, Alain Burrese rated it really cor it. This is not your regular yoga book!
But it’s not a joke either. It’s a serious workout. Page wrote the book with Dr. Craig Aaron and even got Rob Zombie to write the Foreword. Ddl found a copy at a used book store and am very glad I did. First off, the book is aimed at guys. This should be obvious by the title. Wit This is not your regular yoga book! With that said, there are a few tid bits of locker room humor, but nothing that bad, and as the covers states, there are yoga babes included.
Page begins by making his personal case in regards to doing yoga. Why he started, what it’s ugys for him, and why he thinks it is the best workout you can do. His case is compelling. I agree that yoga is great for you and I hope Page is able to get a lot of regular guys to check this form of exercise and stretching out. He then goes into the first lesson on breathing.
This is so important and I’m glad it was included. If it hadn’t, I’d question the book.
Yoga for Regular Guys: The Best Dam Workout on the Planet! by Diamond Dallas Page
The bulk of the book is devoted to three routines. The 20 minute workout section, the 30 minute workout section, and the 45 minute workout section. Each of these provides pictures and short descriptions to follow along with and learn the routines. The pictures and descriptions are good, but those that have taken classes or watched DVDs will have an advantage.
It is a lot easier to learn movements rwgular way rather than from a book. But for a book, this one is done well. It also has a few pages of the workouts at a glance.
These have the pictures without the descriptions to help you remember the sequence of moves.
