Question: Is flexibility important for men, and is yoga the only way to improve flexibility?
Answer: While a lot of men ignore stretching when it comes to putting together their workout routine, it really is an important part of overall fitness. Flexibility can really help prevent injuries, both sudden or long-term strains, and irritation of the muscles and tendons that we use when we are working out. Also, flexibility helps with range of motion, helps us perform sports better and helps us get down on the floor and play with our kids and not be so sore the day after activity.
So it's really an important part of fitness. Yoga is certainly not the only way to achieve flexibility. A regular simple stretching program is a great way to achieve flexibility that can help you be happy and healthy.
