Smoke pot, get yoked: 3 sets, 10 reps each

Smoke pot, get yoked: 3 sets, 10 reps each

Lifting weights and smoking weed — two favorite pastimes of people who consume a lot of calories — will now be one in a gym slated to open in The City.

Marijuana legend Ricky Williams, who also played some incredible football, is reportedly opening a Power Plant Fitness with 420 Games founder Jim McAlpine, according to Tech Insider.

It’s branded as the “first-ever cannabis gym,” and McAlpine said in a blog post that it “won’t be a place to get high and just screw around. We are focused on the athletic side, not the cannabis side.”

But the gym, which is supposed to open in the fall and reportedly finalizing a lease, will allow members to smoke joints on a designated patio and/or eat edibles and vape in between sets.

Williams is notorious for taking a season off to do yoga in Grass Valley outside of Sacramento, so his NorCal pot roots run deep.

Swami Sez: Time for new gig

Like last season, the San Francisco 49ers opener will be the late Monday Night Football game on ESPN.

Unlike last year, Chris Berman and Trent Dilfer will not be calling the game.

The New York Daily News reported earlier this month the former Niners quarterback and the Worldwide Leader in Sports were at odds over compensation and that Dilfer would likely depart the network. Rumors even circled that he would join pal and CEO Jed York in the 49ers’ front office.

Then, on Thursday night, the Big Lead broke the news that Berman, an original SportsCenter anchor, would be stepping away from his on-air roles covering the NFL after the 2016 season.

Berman’s agent told The New York Times that the legendary talent has no plans of retiring.

Looks like it’s back, back, back to the drawing board.
