Bikram Yoga!

Yes I know I know it’s useless for cardio and strength blah blah blah. But I finally took Dan John’s advice to use it as muscle recovery, and I gotta say that I’m hooked. I’m doing 5/3/1 and sleeping+eating my ass off but still having difficulty recovering. This stuff is helping a lot.

The atmosphere is fairly hipster, but the class kicks your ass enough that you feel ok about being there.

Anybody else tried it before?

Andy Murray does this mate. Wouldn’t mind having a go myself. Tons of hot chicks go to yoga so there’s a good chance of pulling a bird in the class.

From the girls I know who do it, lots of hot chicks in bikram…

Does “pulling a bird” mean getting a girl or getting an erection?

I’ve done yoga twice over the last 6 years. Great for recovery and flexability, but just so GD slow. I almost went to sleep.

I agree with Penn&Teller and would rather just call yoga stretching.
