Oh, hello blog. I wasn’t sure you still existed. Lately, I haven’t really felt all that inspiring or insightful to post anything and not that I’m saying today’s post is either of those things, but I’m getting back on my blogging wagon before I lose all of you.
It has been brought to my attention by a few people and various social media outlets that….wait for it….the planking craze no longer exists. If you didn’t even know it existed in the first place then well, check out this previous post to get a recap.
Apparently the new thing is called “owling”. Which can be explained here. Basically, instead of lying face down and looking like you’re a passed out drunk, you perch yourself on something, crouch down, and get someone to snap a pic. And then you upload it to your Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Blogger immediately…Duh!
Personally, I’m not a fan of this owling position, I prefer “The Leisure Dive”. This is pure brilliance…I mean, who doesn’t crack up by looking at this picture!? Seriously, I know the word “winning” went out of style just as fast as Charlie Sheen, but this picture deserves the hashtag #winning for sure.
I’d also like to go out on a limb and say that I think my girl, Nyki is ahead of the times by her pose she captured today: The L Sit. This one could be great because not everyone can do this pose. It’s pretty easy to lay down flat on something, and it’s pretty easy to crouch down and leisurely dive off the board, but this pose takes some skill.
This Thursday I’m going to California to watch the CrossFit Games and I’m thinking about doing the pose below in random places and calling it “Dumping”.
Just think… I could create a whole new Facebook album entitled “Dumping”. I doubt anyone else would have the same.
