Pilates and yoga classes have a reputation for being women-only. However, this simply is not the case! While both genders are welcome to attend, both genders can also greatly benefit from the results. Here are a few reasons why men should not turn down the next invitation they receive to go to a Pilates class:
- Pilates targets smaller muscle groups that are often overlooked in powerlifting exercises. Engaging in a regular Pilates routine will ensure that you are strengthening all of your muscles.
- If your flexibility is limited, you will not be as successful in the weight room. Pilates can help to increase your flexibility, and therefore prevent potential musculoskeletal injuries.
- Pilates helps to target every one of your abdominals- even the ones that are neglected during regular sit-up and plank exercises.
- Pilates will help you mentally. Breathing exercises and concentration will help you to feel relaxed while still getting a great work out.
