10 Reasons Men Should Be Practicing Pilates:
1. Prevents and Repairs Injuries.
Do you have an old sports injury? Does a torn rotator cuff or ACL tear from football or soccer sound familiar? Pilates strengthens all the muscles surrounding joints with minimal impact. Many men have found that their recovery and rehabilitation process is shorter when Pilates training is incorporated.
2. Stronger 6 Pack.
Pilates targets your deep abdominals to create a stronger 6 pack. Transverse abdominals, internal and external obliques and intercostals, multifidus, pelvic floor, and rectus abdominus are muscles included in your powerhouse.
3. Better golf swing!
Many golf players have improved their game of golf due to the use of core muscles such as their transverse abdominals. By increasing core strength and flexibility golf players are able improve their torque before a swing.
4. Supplements Sports Conditioning.
Pilates increases your speed, flexibility and agility to improve overall sports strength and conditioning. Pilates strengthens the powerhouse muscles listed above.
5. Mind Body Connection.
Pilates integrates breathing, visualization and flow so that you can develop a greater body awareness and knowledge.
Pilates strengthens the body with little impact on your major joints allowing bones and cartilage to strengthen versus breakdown.
