9/23/16 Friday September 23, 2016 (Training with Kevin)

6:20am - Training with Kevin

Excellent day.  Feeling really good.  Some mobility work first.  We worked on some get-ups into windmills, getups with pauses at each point with neck rotations and shoulder rotations.  I like that stuff, felt very good.  Practiced rack walks, one arm with 28kg, double rack walks with 2 24kgs.  Practiced hike swing parks with 24, 28, 32 kgs.  Did some tall kneeling presses with 16kgs, 20kgs, 24kgs.  All of this designed to dial in staying tight in the abs, not spilling out.  Did some CL&PR with the 28kg, and the 32kgs, doing doubles.  Mixed in with rack walks and HSP, a few sets.

Really solid, this is excellent, clearly moving forward in a positive direction.

8:00am - End

8:45am - Chiro

Another good appointment. Did some baseline tests, for movement patterns etc., and then an adjustment.  This stuff is really helping too.

5:15pm - Chiro appt

Notes - Extremely encouraged here.  Very good training session.  BU pressing felt very good for the shoulders.  24kg BU PR is not super easy, you need to concentrate, and those were good reps.  I had not done hand to hand swings in some time, so those were fun.  Had a chiro adjustment again this afternoon, I have been hitting that hard, and it is very clearly helping.  C5 adjustments, among other things, and getting immediate and noticeable improvements.  So glad I got back into that, I should never have let that go so long.
