How to be like Gumby: Competition Style

In this week’s rendition of TGIF stuffs, we return to video to drive home the importance of proper stretching and flexibility.  Of course, I’m probably one of the worst offenders when it comes to stretching.  I generally do the only two stretches that all runners know (pull foot behind you up to your butt & bend over and touch your toes).  Although over the course of the last two weeks, I’m up to 30 minutes of stretching a day.  I’m going to be so stretchy soon, I’ll be able to do something spectacular!  Like touch my toes.

So…with that, we go back to the Japanese game shows for clarity on why stretching is important.  In short – if you’re not flexible – your ass in ejected into the tank.  I present you – Human Tetris!

Have a great weekend!  And go Seahawks!
