the best part about it is you can setup your mat in the great outdoors and really enjoy the scenery while doing it. if you're in a more temperate climate that is. i wouldn't recommend doing this outdoors if you're in Minnesota atm.

there's no better time like the present.

I've slacked off the last couple of years, but recently start my yoga regeim back up again myself. It teaches you how to strengthen up your 'core', which is alot in your abdomen, which is the part that holds your guts in.

But the reason I took up yoga in the first place, was it's your abdomen muscles that are actually what keeps your back in good health. I have had a bad back for many years (due to neglect and abuse earlier in my years)...and yoga improves flexibility, strengthens your abdomen, and helps build good balance...all the things I need for surfing.

Look at somma these 'old guys' who have big beer guts. Guess what, they've ALL got bad backs too, because they've all lost the muscle tone in their abdomens, so they can't contain their stomachs anymore, and at the same time, their backs go out too. They've lost all the strength in their CORE.

Use it or lose it fellas!! Just start simple and work from that.

here's an EXCELLENT example...

Just go online. You can find free trial video classes in various sites. Read books; lots of very good books on the subject with step by step pictures. If you are going to be in a place for a time look up a yoga studio and go. Almost all studio's will give a free trial instruction period so you can have a teacher correct your mistakes before you actually start paying for instruction. I still do this once in awhile accept I prefer to pay but many times the instructor won't take my money. Besides, I like to mingle and visit with people who do yoga once in awhile. I always learn something new every time I stop into a yoga studio. That's kinda what life is all about, learning new things, staying open to the possibilities.

Ditto Patrick, my back was so bad the docs wanted me to have surgery. I haven't been to a doc for my back since o8. I was actually in pretty good shape but my back was still bad. It's all about the core for sure.

begin every morning by breathing and stretching. Your body will tell you if too much is too much. Get a carpet sampler or better yet a nice persian area carpet as long as you are. If you do it every morning it becomes a habit. I usually end with a cup of coffee and a cigarette

Sometimes peeing a lot can be an environmental issue as well. Nine years ago after selling a business I took on a job working an alluminium cutting saw in a small window manufacturer, I soon noticed that I was peeing a lot and just put it down to getting older. I quit this job a year or so on but was in the shop one day talking to the fellow I had trained up as my replacement and he mentioned that he was peeing a lot, and I noticed that I was peeing less often. I would be leary of cooking with alluminium pots as well, all those no stick frypans are made of alluminium I think. If I don't drink anything after 700pm I sleep through the night,
One thing I have been doing for the last 20 years on most mornings is the Sun Salutation, it is a series of yoga stretching moves that takes only a few minutes, you can likely google it, once you do it three or four times you remember it all. A great way to get an intro to Yoga.Smile

You guys crap me up! This is probably why there is no Men's Room. Cuz we can't help to joke about everything...or at least I can't, haha!

Reminds me of waaaay back in middle school, I remember one day in class we were all required to learn how to perform CPR on a dummy. I don't remember if the dummy was male or female. In any case, a bunch of us boys (me included) couldn't help but to crack up during the entire session. We just couldn't keep a straight face over the the thought of "kissing" the dummy. The teacher kicked us out of that CPR session, me included. I still laugh over the thought of that.

Well this is it, I think. For now at any rate. I think keeping a sense of humor about serious stuff helps us to cope better with it. This goes for more than just men related issues. But especially when dealing with male only issues. After the talk about prostate issues started off here, I started reading up on it. I know I'm supposed to have had the examination since I'm well into my 40s, but I haven't yet. I regret opening this pandoras box, but I know it's something that needs to be done.
