I finally decided to expand my workout repertoire and check out some yoga at my local gym. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was not the only man in the class, though many of them looked to be very old men hoping to keep in shape. But that's their prerogative! I myself was skeptical, but those old men really knew what they were doing because they lasted way longer in the class than I did. I had read in my Men's Health that men have much less flexibility than women, and I can attest to the fact that is true, simply because I could hardly lift my leg out to my side.
I enjoyed the fact that it was so relaxing and stimulating in different ways, especially since I mostly rely on weightlifting for my own personal fitness, but by the end of the class, I definitely was dripping in sweat. This doesn't mean that I'm going to give up because there is a yoga class at my gym like three days a week, so I still have the opportunity to get back on the horse, so to speak, and try to class again. Maybe this time I'll actually be able to do the downward dog!
