I feel some different tightness in various parts of my back and pelvis from the past few days of higher intensity bell work. Not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing. It's different. I'm hoping it's my body re-learning how it should be moving and handling weight. I hope I'm right. In the meantime, I just need to do everything I can to help it along.
Overall, I'm feeling pretty good these days. I think back to last December when I was starting to prepare for the RKC Cert. I was in a different kind of pain. My forearms were shot. I recall that any type of pressing was terribly painful. And I was forced to palm press my lighter bells. This year it's a different story. Live and learn. Just keep moving forward. And have fun!
Anyway, this morning was a blend of Beginner and Intermediate Intu Flow.
Followed up with my mini clubbells performing:
Alternating Back Stroke
It's amazing how even with the mini clubbells these few movements get your warmed up to a light perspiration. And I'm only performing one small set of each right now. The Hammer Swing is something I need to take slowly. If you perform it correctly, it is a GREAT movement to open up the thoracic spine. Unfortunately, the first time I performed it, I felt like a pretzel for a few days afterward. The other movements are great for the core and shoulders, which are also in need of some "different" attention right now. That's it for today!
