Pilates is a hard workout but it’s low impact and is a great way to keep you feeling fit and strong without aggravating any old injuries. Whether you’re a gym goer or not you can benefit greatly from a Pilates practice.
The truth is that Pilates was created by a man (Joseph Pilates) for men. The benefits, such as increased flexibility, strengthening of deep muscles, etc, were acknowledged way back then in the 1920′s, and they’re just as true to this day”
Why More Men Should Practice Pilates
- Pilates helps with flexibility. Most male bodies are very tight and stiff. By improving your flexibility, you’ll feel more relaxed, your posture will improve, and you’ll be less prone to injury.
- Pilates makes you strong. It helps strengthen those small, intricate, supporting muscles just as much as those larger muscles. This creates an overall stronger man, and often you won’t get those types of results from just hitting the local gym.
- Pilates connects you to your body. Those who’ve never done Pilates may be strong, but they’re missing that core “Pilates awareness” that can propel a workout to a higher level.
