Let’s be honest, Yoga isn’t a thought you’d immediately conjure up as manly. But, as I’ve recently discovered, participating in Yoga has significantly improved my performance, strength, and fitness all of which every man should be striving to improve.
Today, I’m joined by repeat guest, Dean Pohlman, to talk about his new book. We cover why every man should consider incorporating Yoga in his fitness regimen, how flexibility improves strength, the unknown benefits for men of participating in Yoga, and how a man can learn to connect mind and spirit through the practice of Yoga.

My guest today is my friend Dean Pohlman. Dean and I met years ago when he was first on my show. Since then, we’ve become friends and I’ve started incorporating some of what he’s been teaching into my own life.
He is the founder of Man Flow Yoga, which is an online platform designed to help men learn the fundamentals and foundation of Yoga, and how it can improve every aspect of their fitness.
I was a little skeptical at first but I’ve been amazed and how much this guy knows about functional fitness, strength building, and men’s health in general.
Today, we talk about a lot of different elements of health and fitness including the message from his latest book, Yoga Fitness for Men.

Yoga Fitness for Men
I know you’ve heard of the Iron Council by now but the question is, have you taken the time to find out the benefit it offers.
Quite honestly, when I launched the Iron Council, which is our exclusive mastermind, more than two years ago, I wasn’t really aware of what it would turn into. This is a collection of over 400 men from all over the world working together to improve their lives.
As I’ve seen the men inside the Iron Council transform themselves, they’ve salvaged marriages, connected with their children, secured job promotions, launched new businesses, gained a new level of focus and clarity, developed confidence and assertiveness, and generally live more fulfilled and satisfied lives.
Whether you feel like you’ve plateaued in life or you’re simply looking to take it the next level, find other highly motivated men to encourage you, support you and, give you the kick in the pants cannot be overstated.
