What’s a Bojan?

Bojan (Serbian Cyrillic: Бојан; Russian and Bulgarian Cyrillic: Боян, transcribed Boyan) is a Slavic given name, derived from the Slavic noun boj “battle“. The ending -an is a suffix frequently found in anthroponyms of Slavic origin. The name is recorded in historical sources among the Serbs, Bulgarians, Czechs, Poles, and Russians. In Slovenia, it is the 18th most popular name for males, as of 2010. Some North American Racing Fitness Tribes in the Northeastern region of the United States use the name in the later part of 2012 to explain a partner workout where a specific section was called “doing a Bojan” or “Bojans.” In this usage, athletic partners of the same speed would take turns setting a Downward Facing Dog, or Adho Mukha Śvānāsana (अधोमुखश्वानासन) while the other would climb underneath and through the open space on the ground below.

Once clear and standing out of the way, the partner in Downward Facing Dog (“Down Dog”) would move into Child’s Pose, or Bālāsana (बालासन). The set Child’s Pose would be jumped over with two feet together by the partner who had just finished crawling underneath. This combination would complete one repetition of the motion that these tribes are calling a “Bojan.” Each partner would take turns in each role. Combining “Bojan” with sets of situps, hand release pushups, and 400m sprints/laps, you’ll get a throw-down workout that will keep you warm in any weather condition.

Wednesday: Racing 37 sections starting at… you guessed it… 6:30AM. #RecruitCrazyFuckers as it gets colder. Wednesday remains the best first day venue for “newbies.” Please keep spreading the word about what we’re doing and building.

Friday: We’ll go hang with our friend, fan, and potential recruit, Officer Brother, in sleepy Brookline. We might be doing #IndianaJones, we might not. There’s only one way to find out. #Rise&Shine
