Exercises are known to be one of the physical therapy that is aimed at preventing and managing certain diseases. Regular exercise for men boosts their quality of life and improves their health. There are several exercises men could do and will in turn be beneficial to their health.

YOGA: Yoga improves health in the following ways

Getting used to breathe in and out through the nose taking in fuller deep breaths which stimulate the lower tongue to distribute greater amounts of oxygen to the body.

Yoga also sharpens your balance, coordination, concentration, and body awareness — and thus helps prevent falls.

It helps strengthen and stretch muscles and therefore minimize injury.

It trains the mind to focus internally, creating a balanced mind.

  • GOLF:
    The walking, and chasing
    balls lost in the rough, means plenty of work for your hips and spine. Golf is
    atypical example of weight-bearing exercise

  • DANCING: improved condition of your heart and lungs
  • increased muscular strength, endurance
    and motor fitness
  • increased aerobic fitness
  • improved muscle tone and strength
  • weight management
  • stronger bones and reduced risk of
    osteoporosis
  • better coordination, agility and
    flexibility
  • improved balance and spatial
    awareness
  • increased physical confidence
  • improved mental functioning
  • improved general and psychological
    wellbeing
  • greater self-confidence and
    self-esteem
  • better social skills.
  • RACQUET SPORTS:
    Tennis, squash, and paddle tennis can rally your bone density. You’re stressing
    your racquet arm, wrist, and shoulder every time you hit the ball,
    and working your hips and spine with all that running around — and chasing
    down wild balls.

If
you’re going for racquet sports, go for singles. You’ll get a lot more from
your workout in terms of bone health, since you’ll be running around more.

  • STRENGTH TRAINING:  Lifting weight are forms of strength or
    resistance training. You’re working against some form of resistance — whether
    it’s a set of “free” weights, your own body weight, or weight
    machines — to stress a sequence of muscles and bones. Strength training at
    least twice a week, says the surgeon general, is needed to stimulate bone
    growth. Your design is going to be based on your fitness level.
  • CARDIO:
    Sweating it out for 20 to 40 minutes on the treadmill or elliptical
    might be the only kind of cardio you’re
    familiar with, but it won’t necessarily impact your metabolic rate. Consider
    adding an anaerobic exercise – like sprinting or jumping – when you’re done
    with an aerobic activity, which brings your exercise to a more intense level
    and boosts your metabolism in the process.

  •  BRISK WALKING:  A brisk walk is a
    relative term, since “brisk” for some, is either slow or quite speedy for
    others, depending on levels of fitness.

One measure to
quantify brisk walking is “steps per minute,” and 100 steps per minute is
considered moderate intensity or brisk walking.  Fitness experts typically
suggest a pace of 3.5 miles/hour on a treadmill to correlate to brisk walking,
for an average person who does not exercise regularly.

  • It reduces the risk of stroke and other
    cardiovascular diseases.
  • It can help you lose weight and reduce the risk
    of obesity.
  • 10 minutes of walk everyday helps to lower blood
    pressure.
