If you’ve been on the fence about starting up yoga, or some sort of heat-induced exercise class, let linebacker Ryan Kerrigan sway you to begin one.

Kerrigan joined Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, for an episode of “Redskins Nation” on Friday for a new segment called “Ask Ryan,” taking questions from fans, which ranged from his thoughts on next year’s team to who he might be dating.

Though he played coy on the latter, he did spill some details about his offseason workouts, which include participating in hot yoga sessions.

“I’m feeling really good right now,” Kerrigan said. “I started doing yoga recently, and I’ve been meaning to do that the past couple of offseasons but this offseason I’m really committing to it and I’m already seeing benefits from it.”

Those benefits mean more mobility and he admitted his “range of motion is a lot better.”

“I think that’s going to provide a lot of benefits in the long term,” he said. “The first couple times was incredibly tough [regarding the heat]. I had to leave the room one time it was too much because you’re in the room for 90 minutes, 114 degrees in there. It’s incredibly hot but like anything, the more you do it, the better you get at it.”

Kerrigan, who says he’ll be sticking with his short hair when asked about growing it out, knows to be successful, like anything, he just has to stay consistent with it.

“I’ve just got to keep doing it,” he said. “You get a lot of benefits out of it. It’s good for your internal organs, joints everything. I’d recommend it to anyone.”

This Day In History: Redskins Hire Vince Lombardi As Head Coach

On Feb. 7, 1969, the unthinkable happened — longtime Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi was hired in the same position with the Washington Redskins.

Lombardi joined the Packers in 1959 with quite the task, as he was taking over a team that went 8-27-1 in the three years prior to his arrival.

Not only did Lombardi quickly turn the Packers into one of the strongest teams in the league, he led them to three NFL Championships and two Super Bowl victories.

In 1967, though, Lombardi was in search of a change, stepping down as the team’s head coach but remaining in the role of general manager in 1968.

But one of the greatest coaches in NFL history just couldn’t resist the itch to get back onto the sideline, and with the chance to takeover the Redskins on the table, Lombardi could only say yes.

During the 1969 season, Lombardi led the Redskins to a 7-5-1 record highlighted by Sonny Jurgensen throwing for an NFL-high 3,102 yards and rookie Larry Brown making the Pro Bowl.

Unfortunately, 1969 would be the only season Lombardi would coach in Washington, as he passed away on Sept. 3, 1970 — just 17 days before the season opener.

Soon after his death, the NFL decided to rename the championship trophy in his honor, and the Redskins, of course, currently have three Lombardi Trophy representing their Super Bowl victories.
