The Thang

Many of us have “questionable” form as we complete our exercises. Squats are an easy one to pick out. The solution? Toes to the wall -squat & don’t scratch your nose.

When we do Merkins, it shouldn’t look like we’re having carnal relations with the floor!  The body should move as one unit. Tighten abs & glutes… chest & pelvis should move in unison.

So, how do we make sure people have good Merkin form? This is where the cell phone comes in. By placing a cell phone right between your shoulder blades. If you keep good form the phone to stay there.

Demonstration was given then the fun began!

It should be noted that there was much mumble chatter as the number 50 was disclosed as the uniform number for each Merkin variation.

YHC even felt close to a Merlot a time or two!

For many of us, life is hard I would venture to say that would apply to most of us. From the outside looking in it might appear that those around us have everything figured out that life in general just comes easy. Remember in life that nothing is free except for the salvation that is given to us God… The gift of eternal life if we believe.
