Sun never looked SO GOOD!!!!!

Ok, so I am sounding like a bit of a complainer... the rain, it was just too much! ( yes I know we needed it, the lake levels are up and my grass looks great!)But ahhh today! Awesome!!!! I spent almost the entire day outside! Even as I write this, I am still outside!

I am truly amazed at the outside world, nature in all it's beauty! Everything seems to have a purpose and an order....A structure, if you will...
You know what I realized too? We don't look up enough. Seriously, check your vision to see what I mean. When you walk, when you workout, when you are at the computer, how often are you looking down or barely straight ahead?

I think my Z Health colleagues will know what I am talking about. The effects of vision on our well being and how eye positon can make a difference in our performance and everyday functional movement. But today I guess I'm thinking more in terms of how good it feel to really take your eyes up and see the world above the horizon. Take a look...and be thankful....

So today, I trained outside on our new deck! Wow! No more splinters in my feet!! My training went well! It looked like this:
TGU 16 kg 4/4 x3
Overhead Lockout 24kg 10sec/10sec x3
Pistols 18lbs 5sec/5sec x3
Pull ups Lock off at top 5sec x6
H2H swings 24kg 12/12 x5

Very little rest throughout the workout
Overall RPE= 7.0

Today leaves me feeling energized and ready for the new week! Must be the extra boost of vitamin D I got today!!!

Which one are you???

Quote for the day:
"Nobody enjoys lifting heavy things. If you meet people who claim they do, they are either not telling the truth or they are part of a confused group of people whom someone should keep a close eye on. " from the book Leven Thumps and the Wrath of Ezra by Obert Skye

Thank you Diana Meisburger for giving me this awesome quote! Reminds me just how unusual I am.... HaHa!

At Long Last! So excited I......

don't know where to begin! I guess I should start with the fact that my good buddy, Tim Anderson, RKC Level II, Battling Ropes Level II coach, and Z Health trainer of many levels has teamed up with me to produce a kettlebell workout DVD and we finally completed it! We started back in July/August with the vision of making a DVD for those kettlebell enthusiasts who train at home, but can't find the time to train and/or don't know how to design an effective, motivating, time - efficient workout that will blast fat and build lean muscle!
We came up with what I think is an awesome workout DVD that leads you through a warm up, and three dynamic workouts focusing on strength, cardio and a combination of the two. There is a tips and troublshooting segment to get the most out of your technique, along with a manual in pdf form to insure you get it right! Oh, also there are some really funny bloopers at the end as well! :-) Click on the banner on the right side of my blog for me details and order your copy today! Don't Delay! I am certain you will be glad you did!

PS Thanks Tim for taking a chance and believing in me. You are incredible and I learned alot from you!
