Charles Barkley Attempts To Do Yoga, Is Not Totally Terrible At It

What does one do in between the downtime of presenting NBA playoff games? For Charles Barkley, it’s (attempting) to get in some yoga.

The Round Mound of Rebound, who now serves as an NBA analyst for TNT, tried his very best to do a downward dog, and possibly some other positions? We’re not really sure.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_GB/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

…meanwhile, in the viewing room, Chuck shows off his yoga poses.

Barkley has shared his thoughts on yoga before. Last fall, he told Jimmy Fallon that yoga is “just stretching in a hot room.

“You’re not trying to find your inner peace, or anything, you’re just trying to get your leg in a position that it normally doesn’t go in,” Barkley quipped, (also sharing that he even had plans to attend a SoulCycle session with his daughter).

All joking aside, Barkley did say in 2013 that Bikram yoga was “fantastic” for stretching as he’s gotten older.
