Time goes fast when you’re busy living a life. Between being a dad, studying, training people, doing extracurricular studies (CK-FMS, Z-health, bodywork etc.) and keeping up practical skills little time is left. So I guess one area of progress for me is making time 😉
I’ve signed up for Z-health R-phase in November, and since I have actively been implementing the concepts for a while I really look forward to the course, about which I’ve heard nothing but solid endorsements. It’s also refreshing to sign up for a course and receive a load of suggested reading. This seems to be a cornerstone in the Z-health educational policy which continues along the chain of different seminars (R, I, 9S, S, T etc.).
My training is back to focusing on the basics with a “train by feel” approach. Lots of heavy pressing, goblet squats, zercher squats, kalos sthenos get ups with a lot of varieties, rope climbing, swings and running. Running has been centrered around a minimalist approach and some obstacle work with a parkour’ish feel to it.
In school I’ve been following two practical courses this term, so I’ve had 3 hours of basketball and swimming respectively. Swimming was a continuation of three previous courses, so the practical stuff was based on butterfly stroke, medley and waterpolo, which by the way is hands down the hardest sport I have ever tried.
Dragondoor has a new kettlebell certification on the market, and I would just like to recommend anyone who is interested in learning the basics of the Hardstyle method and/or getting a deeper appreciation of teaching and moving. It’s called Hardstyle Kettlebell Certification or HKC for short. Dragondoor also has a favorable price on attending RKC after a HKC so if you are thinking about attending an RKD, this is a no-brainer in my opinion.
This is it for now.
Train hard, eat right and believe in yourself 😉
