My session today consisted of:
Kettlebell specific joint mobility
Kettlebell specific yoga
Prasara Spider Monkey flow
I chose to work on the Spider Monkey flow during this 4x7 because Scott Sonnon mentioned over at RMax that it is a good flow to compensate for Forward Pressure. Whenever I looked at the Prasara A and B flows before this has probably been the flow that I most wanted to avoid. It simply seemed impossible. Now that I've started fooling around with it my opinion is definitely changing pretty fast. I absolutely LOVE the movements. Yes, I am probably looking nothing like a Spider monkey but I am at least beginning the journey that will take me there. The movements work the shoulders and core in a really nice way and I can imagine that it can be pretty beneficial for people with shoulder problems (although the movements should be approached carefully). I feel pretty good about what I did today; in fact, I might just do the Spider Monkey a bit more after tomorrow's Forward Pressure session.
