Actually this was a shitty session. i only got 4 hrs sleep and then I was interrupted twice during my session by my youngest and his friends. I tried to block it all out, but it affected me anyway. I will get better sleep tonight!

Steven's knee is bothering him again when kneeling on his knee. If it doesn't get better, ortho time. There is no swelling and he can run and jump. We will see how i goes.

My Return of the Kettlebell book is on the way....

Just received notice that it just left Sharonville, OH.. With me in Cleveland, should be here tomorrow..If you haven't got either the book or dvd here are the links.

5.6.09

I felt I needed a back off day. Plus my back in the mid low back had a cramp.

I did Intu-Flow - intermediate level

spinal rocks
quad hops

Back feels much better. I need to add the spinal rocks and quad hops back in everyday.

i will be making the switch back to some version of Intu-flow everyday. Next week I will be doing a 4 day HFT schedule since I will be in NJ Tuesday night thru Friday morning. I can't afford to take my 32kgs on the plane. I will be starting a 6 day a week starting the week of the 18th. Should be fun.
