Yoga – A Man’s Workout

January 14, 2013 By: consultant 17 Comments

Hundreds of scientific studies on yoga show that it aids in overcoming sleep problems, sinusitis, stress, high blood pressure, type II diabetes, even schizophrenia. Here are some reasons why men should find out what all the Om is about…

• A study published in The Journal Of Urology found that men with Prostate Cancer who practiced 60 minutes of gentle yoga (stretching, breathing, meditation, guided imagery, and relaxation) for one year had eight times less growth of cancer cells than the men who did not do yoga.

• Men experience a lot of stress in their lives. This stress creates cortisol, which stimulates appetite and over eating. This hormone also helps turn those extra calories into belly fat, which releases disease-causing inflammatory chemicals (more prevalent in men than in women). Yoga reduces the production of Cortisol which in turn, controls abdominal fat.

• The majority of Americans who suffer heart attacks each year are men. New research shows that yoga can reduce many heart attack risk factors like high blood pressure, elevated total and LDL (bad) cholesterol and high triglycerides.

• A study reported in The Journal of Sexual Medicine found that men who practiced yoga for one hour each day for three months improved every dimension of sexual functioning – libido, erections, satisfaction with performance, and sexual confidence.

At Shane Diet and Fitness Resorts we know that it is much safer to learn by taking a class from a certified instructor.  We don’t recommend that you try to learn from a DVD or book.  The Instructor can look at your flexibility and form to guide you and show you how to use different props to protect you making the experience more ease-ful. To find a good class in your community, ask another man first.  If you don’t know any men studying yoga, ask a woman or visit the website of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

Remember guys, this is not competitive so don’t rush the results. It is about the poses and breathing exercises helping your mind and your body.  Don’t worry about what the person on the mat next to you is doing. Yoga is a good complement to cardio and strength training. Simply doing a yoga routine 15 to 20 minutes a day everyday will give you discipline, balance and overall fitness while reducing stress and increasing mental focus.Time to find out what you have been missing!

  2. Wow, amazing blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
    you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your website is magnificent, as well as
    the content!

  3. When it comes to fitness equipment one name worth considering is Paragon fitness.

    If they aren’t interested in the more popular pursuits, something like Karate or Ballet may be an
    option. The one thing that Zumba fitness for Kinect lacks in a fitness game
    is that it does not track any statistics.

  4. I’m now not positive where you’re getting your information, but great topic.

    I must spend a while learning much more or figuring out more.
