Ryan Giggs is hoping to make 1000 appearances for Manchester United. Giggs has spent the last 3 decades representing Manchester United, playing a key role for arguably the world’s most successful club.
The reason for his longevity? Yoga. Giggs was committed to being successful and as such would go to any length to extend his career. For example, he stopped driving sports cars because of their impact on his hamstrings, improved his diet and retired from international football. All these things have helped him play for United until the age of 40. It is however yoga that Giggs, gives most credit too.
“You can feel it working and you can feel the benefits straight away. My body feels so much better having done the yoga. I still get the odd hamstring strain, which you are going to get when playing football, but it wasn’t about curing the problem, but making it less frequent. I wish I had done it from the start of my career.”
Although always opened minded Ryan Giggs, was sceptical at first about some of the yoga practices. Yoga was typically associated with mums and for a Premier League footballer this was certainly a bold and brave move to break with convention. He could not see the benefit to him to stretch in this position or that. Then he was shown stills of how he would contort himself on the pitch, albeit unwittingly, and it all made sense. The results have been emphatic.
Ryan is still playing regularly at United and the Old Trafford legend has 1000 appearances firmly in his sight. It would be foolish to bet against him.
