You have no idea how much I was fangirling during the podcast this week when you both covered what an inbar skill is…or as I apparently like to incorrectly refer to it as in bars ha!
Against my better judgement I tried the position on the floor trying to make a pancake shape with my arms up and I may as well have just been in a fetal position – my body said “nope, hard pass”. RIP me. I will forever be in this spot on the floor unable to get up.
