Not too bad...

Some pretty cool stuff since I last blogged. Well, cool to me. I had a visitor, Jason Mancebo, all the way from California come to work out with me. I thought that was cool. He is an animal. And, my own training was pretty cool this week, especially yesterday's session. Unexpected strength is always cool.

Anyway, It's been a while since I have posted my workouts, and since most of them are similar in nature, I'll just share the ones that were a little different.

Sunday 3/16/08
Front Snatch (a swing that where the kbell flips chest high) w/ 16kg: 10 x 5 sets
Long Cycle Jerks w/ 2(16kgs): 10 x 10 sets
Dbl Snatch w/ 2(16kgs): 10 x 4 sets
Evil Wheel: 10 x 3 sets

Wednesday 3/19/08
Complete R-phase
Dbl Front Squat w/ 2(32kgs): 5 x 5 sets
Dbl Press w/ 2(32kgs)!: 3 x 4 sets - no idea where these came from. I just wanted to feel how heavy they would be and found they weren't that heavy.
Press w/ 32kg: 3/3 - I wanted 5 sets and i didn't want to push my luck w/ the doubles...
Evil Wheel: 10 x 3 sets

I thought that was alright. Anyway, hope everyone has a good Easter!

I would suspect the Z workshop you attended and all your follow up Z work has really kicked in.

I'm only familiar with R-Phase and that is only from the book and DVD .. I HAVE to do it a minimum of three days a week or my training regresses. I can cut SJ, or my QiGong but NOT my Z. Do I really understand why Z works ? .. not really, but it just does.

Franklin, I went to R-phase to try to understand Z and it opened a whole can of worms. Now they're running around everywhere and i'll never be able to put them back in the can. But you're right, Z works.

Tim. Just ringing in to say hi. Do you have any time during the next few weekends to get together for a couple of hours? I would love a critique before heading off. Training is going great. Finally got a post in today. (Slacker!) Speaking of Z. I am in love with it! Can't imagine swinging kbs without it. I rarely have an injury now (only due to stupidity) Hope all is well.

Shawn! I'll call you and we'll try to match our schedules.
