Today I rested and filled my energy depots. After reading Mark Riefkind’s blog I’ve become increasingly aware of the need of prehabilitation or injury preventation. So today I backed of from training after 6 days of intense training and did Z-health and some low volume pistols using my 2-pood kettlebell as weight. Right now I feed completely energized and can’t wait to get going tomorrow.
Z-health is a great way of increasing body awareness and joint health. After having done the R-phase for a few weeks and feel better than I ‘ve done in a long time. Joint health seems to me like a very overlooked aspect of training, and I wonder if many athletes wouldn’t be able to stay healthy and strong for longer using techniques like it. Z-health is very simple (not easy ;-)), and I like it for that very reason. I use it in all my classes as part of the warm up and usually start the day with some Z as well.
