2009/03/17 - Day 12: Low intensity

Both Jocelyn and I felt a bit weak and nauseous most of today - most likely the result of what we ate last night. I feel a hell of a lot better after my training session though. The session went as follows:

Kettlebell joint mobility

Kettlebell yoga compensations

Bit of Spider monkey practice


Before anybody gets the idea that I'm some kind of gymnast please take note: I am only working on the first few transitions of Spider monkey and I am not yet doing the full wheel pose; I am substituting it at this stage for the table. Having said that I am already noticing improvement in my arm strength and the strength of my core muscles. I have also become more aware of my core muscles and am keeping them flexed during the postures to facilitate greater strength and stability. Some of the aspects regarding this flow that I have noticed are as follows:

1. It is very much a general strength builder.

2. The core gets a great workout.

3. It is great for shoulder and upper back mobility.

I'm sure I'll discover more benefits as I move ahead.

Dare one ask what it is you might have eaten?

Weirdly enough it was a Gammon steak dinner - a TV dinner to be sure - but it tasted a bit like fish...Nobody knows why.
