Today was my rest and recovery day.
I worked through Z-Health I-Phase for neck, shoulders, elbows, thoracic, lumbar and pelvis. Followed up with a little stretching.
I'm still not comfortable with I-Phase. Not just because the movements are more difficult than in R-Phase. We've essentially taken all of R-Phase and added the complexity of performing them with the body in various lunge positions. Granted I still need to give this program more time. But personally, I'm feeling that R-Phase might have been enough for me. I do still need to work through more of the movements in I-Phase and there are a few variations contained within it that I like, for example the lumbar circles while in lunge stance, but what I am currently envisioning is that I will most likely continue to use the R-Phase program the majority of the time and sprinkle in a few favorite I-Phase variations as I feel necessary. I guess that's not a bad thing, huh?
