What is it?
That one emotional moment where you’re bare. Vulnerable. Ego-less. Humbled.
Why do I, or some of you who feel me, yearn for that to the point where it’s scheduled into our day? To get into the “Pain Cave”….why the heck do I want that? What’s the payoff?!?
Well, for me, short term, it allows me to get open to the possibility that impossible is possible/that the difficult unreasonable thing is what MUST be done. It helps me to refrain from shrinking from my life. My life is instantly fuller for that.
In the long Term…I get a better functioning body that I enjoy living in…I get a sharper mind and my consciousness is heightened to where life tastes sweeter/I’m more useful to my community/I become a leader and a pillar for those in my life.
I never knew that would happen…it was a result.
A result of me doing the hard thing every damn day. A result of me facing the scary thing. Of doing it simply because it is scary.
I get raw every single day. When was your last go? Do you find it valuable?
(Ps…I couldn’t/wouldn’t do it without YOU!!)
– Tait Fletcher

Okay- here it is again for those of you that didn’t see/read it the first time:
All you have to do to start is to turn yourself upside down for 5 seconds today and then 10 seconds tomorrow…And continue that behavior and pattern for 2 months!!!!
[v. in-vurt; adj., n. in-vurt]
– verb (used with object)

In an effort to keep us all engaged and challenged throughout the holidays and working towards a common goal, we are implementing a free bodyweight challenge. This year’s body weight challenge is an inverted challenge. This is a strength challenge as well as a skill building challenge…and we are hoping that you will have a little bit of fun with this. Many of us struggle with our handstands and would like to be able to do free standing handstand holds or to walk on our hands. This challenge is designed to improve your ability, balance and strength in regards to handstands. Since not everyone can kick up to a handstand there are several scales that will work towards a progressive handstand skill.
The scales/ skills/ levels are:
White- piked hold against the wall
Yellow- handstand hold against the wall
Green- handstand hold shrugs (1 shrug= 1 second)
Brown- handstand shoulder taps ( 2 taps= 1 second)
Black- one armed handstand hold
Beyond Black- any of these skills freestanding ( no wall assistance)
The fun thing about this challenge is that you can switch skills everyday… One day you can work on your one armed Handstand and the next day you can work on your Free Standing Handstand.
How the challenge works:
Day 1 = 5 seconds
Day 2 = 10 seconds
Day 3 = 15 seconds, etc…
Through the 60th day with an accrued total of 5 minutes of upside down time!!!
Can you imagine how much better we will all be at handstands at the end of this challenge???!!! In addition to that, handstands are a great way to warm up and strengthen the shoulder girdle. Working on balance, coordination, flexibility, agility, accuracy and strength.
Not to mention, Yogi’s have extolled the benefits of being upside down for centuries. Whenever I go upside down, I like to think that I am nourishing my brain in a way that is making me smarter. Not to mention, there is a playfulness about being upside down that reminds me of being a kid.
Being inverted reverses the action of gravity on the body. Where normally everything is pulled towards the feet, when we invert we switch the gravitational pull so that everything is pulled towards the head.
~ Regularly inverting your body can positively affect the body’s Cardiovascular, Lymphatic, Nervous and Endocrine systems…..

Who’s in? Let’s have fun with this!!!!
