We love when a male pro athlete or celebrity declares his love for yoga to the press, but we’re more impressed by the everyday guy who hits the mat for his own health, not because he wants to look like Adam Levine (although, ain’t nothing wrong with that). 

MensFitness.com recently put together a list of the top 10 yoga poses for guys. “When you’ve never tried yoga, it can be intimidating, especially if you’ve been scoping the jaw-dropping, super bendy, pretzel-like poses your girlfriend practices each morning. But relax: It’s actually the most basic postures—not the fancy positions—that provide you with the foundation of flexibility and strength that every man needs.” 

Amen to that.

According to the article, the top yoga poses for guys include Mountain Pose because it strengthens and returns flexibility to the feet; Bridge Pose to stretch the front side of the body and Crescent Lunge for a deep hip flexor stretch.
