YHC has found that at the advanced age of 54 — albeit, a young 54 — nervousness rarely visits him. Today was one of those occasions, however, as YHC was Q’ing his first Badlands Broga Beatdown. YHC had long resisted such a Q; with the flexibility of a two-by-four, yoga does not come easy to him. Which is exactly why it was time to do this. For as we all know, nothing grows in the comfort zone.
The Thang: As promised, no surprise burpee fests, merkin fests, mary fests, etc. Even with Shinola coming in what could be considered late — and hilariously running back to get his mat after first making sure he wasn’t late — there was not a burpee to be seen. Let the stretch fest begin!
Lots of childs poses, mountain poses, forward folds, down dogs, hamstring stretches, lizard poses, dancer poses, chair poses, warrior 1’s, 2’s and 3’s, exalted warriors, triangles, pretzel stretches. All held for anywhere from 15 to 45 seconds.

YHC encouraged the pax to get out of their comfort zones. Try something different. If you only listen to CNN or MSNBC, try Fox, and vice versa. Only read the Wall Street Journal? Try the New York Times. Haven’t written the M a love poem in a while? Give it a shot (there are often beneficial side effects). Haven’t helped the kids with homework in a while? Clear off the dining room table and have a go at it. We get better when we push ourselves! Thank you for pushing me!
Prays for those on IR and those impacted by the hurricane.
Always a pleasure, gentlemen! YHC is… out!
