For men, yoga’s the word


It's not the gym and a morning run any longer, more men are advised to try out yoga as part of their fitness regimen. Here are some reasons why:

Builds the core
Sure, the gym offers ab workouts aplenty and there are specified machines in the gym too, but it's said that no other fitness mantra can build the core like yoga does. The asanas really work up the back and stomach muscles. Try holding a plank position for about two minutes each day.

Boosts flexibility
You stretch, stretch and stretch. That's the key, really. So, unlike static routines or simply hitting the treadmill, you have simple routines that can allow you to bend. More flexibility translates into less injury, so get going.

Reduces stress
It's undoubtedly one of the best stress relievers. You might be able to punch a bag or cycle on the elliptical, but it's yoga that effectively eases out fatigue. So after a hard day with back-to-back meetings, roll out the mat and embark on your routine.

Adds to hair care
If you're worried about your hair, try yoga. It is reported that certain poses such as headstands can send blood flow to the brain and thus, stimulating hair growth.

Allow for bonding time
Have no time to spend with your girlfriend during the day? You could plan a morning routine with her. Partner yoga is fun and what better joint commitment to have than healthy living? As you help each other with the poses, it deepens the connection you share with her.
