With the benefits of increased core strength, improved posture and better balance and flexibility, it should come as no surprise that more and more men are making Pilates a vital component of their exercise routines.
There is nothing specifically different about Pilates training for men. Founded on healthy movement principles for the human body in general, the Pilates method is the same for all. Developed by Joseph Pilates,the discipline has been used by professional athletes for over 50 years; and men have figured prominently as instructors and promoters of the Pilates method throughout its history.
Pilates works towards functional fitness and holds plenty of advantages for men; it balances out the body, improves posture, practices diaphragmatic breathing and increases strength by using often neglected muscle groups. It is also ideal for keeping the flab away.
Three of the main principles of Pilates are precision, centering and control and are all beneficial in the prevention of injury. Pilates is also effective in recovery since it can be tailored to any level for any injury.
With all the physical benefits, improved breathing techniques and better stamina, Pilates can also improve your sex life. But that’s another blog for another day.
