Yoga, my friends, yoga. Many of you may snicker but I dare you to walk into a yoga studio and take even a beginner class, it's harder than it looks. Not to mention that there are usually some attractive women wearing tight clothes in the classes (yes I am serious about yoga but I am also a single guy).

You're best best is some sort of hatha/flow yoga style like Ashtanga or Power Yoga. These types of yoga are a constant movement type of yoga (good cardio) with tons of core and pushups becuase of the flows (just like Mike's workout).

Not only will it keep you fit but it will help with balance, flexibility and focus, all applicable to boating.

4 Killians

1 Margarita
1 Jack and Coke

Off Day

2 Swill beers (Coors Lite, MGD, Miller Highlife, BudLite, KeyLite, Etc.)
1 Vodka drink of your choice
1 Corona

1 1554
3 Jack and Cokes
1 Irish Car Bomb

1 Rolling Rock
1 Corona
1 Margarita
1 shot Whiskey

1 Killians
1 1554
1 Fat Tire

Once you're feeling pretty good with this routine, you can add one shot of tequila before each and a nightcap of brandy after each. Also, feel free to insert extracurricular activities wherever desired.

Isn't much of the boating season based upon your ability to outdrink rival crews and still be up early the next morning feeling good and ready to run the shit? You've got to be able to take it no matter how much, how late, or what kind of alcohol is being consumed.

Count you don't drink on Wednesdays?...It isn't called wasted Wednesdays for nothing.

But seriously though...
JMACK and I got a climbing pass to the Boulder Rock Club ( $48 ) a month for students and climbed/bouldered there about 3 times a week until we were completely burnt. It helped our balance and shoulder/back/arm/abs/leg strength. Did some boarding on the weekends and we also spent about 6 hours a week in the pool working on fundamentals and flat water tricks.
When the season came I had no problems and i assume neither did Josh.
We will be that the BRC all winter long if anyone wants to climb with us.
