Cant wait for the weekend!!
We are talking Football!!
And I am way stoked about all 4 of the games!!
Who Picked The Vikings This Year??? Not Me, but beat them damn Seahawks!! And Go Washington as Green Bay shouldn't be in the race but after all, ITS GREEN BAY. And Go Chiefs and their 10 game winning streak!! And the Cincy Pitt game should be explosive!! Those two teams HATE each other and I would bet the house that the winner will be so beat up that they lose next weekend. Regardless of my options, Bring It On!!! Wild Card Weekend Baby
Thats Whats On Tap
Backing up……. Had an excellent week at the gym. Right around the X-mas week, thinking I could add more weight, bumped up all my numbers after the New Year. And I feel Gr8!! My hesitations resided around injury over quality. I had been enjoying the 12-15 burning reps during exercises and I like the confidence of controlling the weight. And now I am way pleased about my choice to increase the weights of my routine.
Chest and Legs
The daily double walking the Boy Dog
Back and Biceps
I now know that I could have increased more weight awhile back because I almost added even more weights to that back routine
Took Shadow Boy out to 27 1/4 rd and we ran like kids. So much snow, felt warm out, & did 20 x 5 sets of push ups afterwards
Drove to the gym for the first time in years
Shoulders and Triceps
This was an epic day. I felt beyond strong!! Powered through the military press, made the jump to 35lb dumbbells during the incline press, and worked the SH*T out of my triceps. Then played some mind games with myself about how I could add just a little bit more next time. BUT I AM NOT IN MY 20's anymore. Slow Down Turbo
Took Shadow Boy to Bangs Canyon and enjoyed the hell out of it. The views were unreal as a fog layer sat in the valley below. All the wet heavy snow bent the juniper tree limbs over and postcard perfect photo options were around every cliff drop off. My legs felt strong, my cardio needs work, & Shadow Boy ate snow like a hyper puppy outside for the first time
Chest and Legs
A Wonderful Client of mine returned to the office this week and what an Ortho experience. His next was all jacked up so I started him in prone position. Adjusted his sacrum, released his lumbars 4 & 5, & after a very successful rhomboid release we focused on his neck. In the supine position, we visualized together, his SCM was like a piano string. I caved around that point and added a very small amount of pressure from the "soft spot" down into his spine. Within about 15 seconds his diaphragm came into play and his next melted in my hand. His eyes popped out of his head and asked," Did you feel that!!" And with a smile I replied that I saw it, tracked it, & noticed both of his big toes roll laterally off the table. I am telling you….. I am so fortunate to be able to work in this modality of Ortho-Bionomy
Another Female Client….. Suffering from Plantar Fascists after giving "running" a shot for her new years resolution. Now we can all pick this apart but thats not what I do. Its hard for me BUT working in NoN-Judgment allows Ortho to work. So we worked with the ankle to release the Cuboid, I then held her calcaneus, lifted her knee, and we hung out. Then, out of her hip, down here fibula, the whole functional unit of the foot rolled out and I got out of the way. She began to cry and I let her do so. I don't need to know why and I didn't investigate. I wish I had video taped her walking into the office to show her walking out. The difference was absolutely astonishing. Together….. We built her a program for the week as her new goal is to finish a 5K this spring injury-free…. Not this summers marathon in Denver that she thought was going to happen
The Grand Mesa Tomorrow….. Shadow Boy & I Will Tromp Around…… Stay Strong Folks
