8 weeks

Oh how the body feels nice and sore from yet another great week of training. The next few weeks stand to be a little crazy with my travels but I can bring my bells with me and of course take my yoga anywhere. So with 8 weeks to go I have a nice 3/1/3/1 program for my press, pistol and pull-ups so I can ace my practical exam at the February RKC. I will be implementing the 40kg into my workouts for the next 7 weeks on the press and pistol. Mentally and physically I am ready. So, now it is training to continue my evolution and progressions.

Today I did my 5th yoga workout for the week. Today I emphasized Hatha Yoga. Included lots of work on the hips, twists, forward folds, and gentle holds. Nice to detox from this weeks hard training sessions.

One thing I truly notice is the difference between training and working out. Mentally it is much more challenging to train and physically my progressions are much greater. Working out is more fun due to its playful nature and the variety of things one can do. However, I find that training has been much more rewarding on a number of levels and in a number of ways.

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and enjoy your family with peace and great memories
