****ing yoga? Jesus H. Christ in a chickenbasket.
Don't tell me you didn't see this coming from miles away.
Q. What did CU's yoga instructor say when ordering a pizza at the Sink?
A. Make me one with everything!
Tyler Hansen ordered a pizza from a waitress at the Sink who is in the same Yoga class as the CU football players. Hansen gave the flexible waitress a $20 bill. The waitress just smiled.
Tyler demanded, "Where is my change."
The waitress replied, "O, one with everything, change comes from within."
this is not a bad thing.
Strength, balance, flexibility. Get over your inhibitions about what makes football players better.
I am so inhibited I can taste it.
Nik - You are plagiarizing from the Ballet excuse book.
I'm fine with that for the heavier players, but the ones whose bodies allow it should be doing plyometrics for those things. As for their mental preparation for games, I don't want them to be relaxed. This isn't ****ing chess.
i'm OK with the yoga, it's that motivational drum circle thing on youtube that makes me want to hurl.
Uhhhh polymetrics are used to build explosive speed, not flexibility.
I'd rather go with Pilates than Yoga for increasing our guys' flexibility.
This is more about avoiding injuries than anything else. God knows this team needs to avoid the injury bug.
No sh**. Still, yoga fixed a chronic hip problem for me. And even though I'm almost as old DBT I can bend forward and kiss my knee. Let the wise cracks commence...
I guess that'd be usefully if you could still get it up.
Yoga good. injuries bad. This does make for good jokes tho.
I don't have an issue with this. Yoga is a solid physical exercise. So long as it's done as a compliment to their regular training, I think it's a good thing.
My biggest fear is that this is just a "little thing" that Hawk thinks will make us "pop". If this is the kind of stuff that Hawk thinks is going to put us over the top, he's delusional. Football is about blocking, tackling, running, throwing, kicking. It's not about keeping yourself centered.
Yea but Hawk doesn't believe in practicing tackling
Hardly. I'd end up poking my eye out...
I'd personally argue that balance and leverage play a huge part in that though. I don't know how many times I could have seen someone like Speedy break one for a TD if his balance was just a tad bit better after contact. Same goes for our OL and DL getting shoved around.
Our tackling is horrendous though. No way to spin that.
That was AJ, asshole.
Doesn't p90x use yoga too?
If it works for Jim Rome then it must be good for the team.
There's a difference? I can't tell you two apart.
I mean that in a good way.
There's no arguement about the benefits of strength, balance, conditioning, or mental focus.
It's just that olympic mogul skiing and judo are much more manly ways to get there.
Yoga is just so....um....somebody help me with the right word.
Well, nobody would love to pile on with a Hawk/Macchu Picchu/Zen of Football Maintenance/Naropa/Tofu joke more than me, but Greg Finegan, GB's S&T guy had the players doing yoga too, so I guess I can't...wait, never mind.:smile2:
Rep for bumping Jim Everett's smackdown of Jim Rome....
That's a part of it.
That part of it to.
Put them together and we have EstroZENic.
It sounds like a pharmaceutical for menopause. But it is better than pussified.
Somebody bring this home.
This was the trainer (Rueda)'s idea, not Hawkins.
Other student athletes besides football are participating.
One of my kids sometimes goes to Bikram yoga (the super-heated sweaty room type.) He has met quite a few young ladies this way. Don't knock it.
