I FINALLY get to go through the Z-Health R-Phase. Today was the first day of the first weekend. Dr. Cobb is just what I expected... very knowledgeable, an excellent teacher and of course a likable person. There is a lot to learn in the R-Phase.
I was lucky enough to have a chance to ask Dr. Cobb about my head position in my deadlift. I also learned that the freaky face contortions I make while lifting heavy is actually working against me in the form. It is a sign of unbalanced tension. Notice my snatch video below... relaxed face!
Joe Pavel is taking the R-Phase as well. He joined me for lunch today. We had a salad and some yellow split pea soup. It was a nice break from trying to cram my brain full of new information. We had a chance to chit chat about kettlebell training and classes, the TSC, family and dogs.
I had a chance to blow off some steam at the gym tonight. Normally it would be deadlift night, but Maura and I decided to back off and go easy tonight. We did some pull-ups and snatches. Here is how it all went down...
12kg - 5/5, 15/15, 10/10, 10/10 = 80 Points
16kg - 5/5, 5/5, 10/10, 5/5 = 100 Points
20kg - 5/5, 5/5, 5/5, 5/5 = 120 Points
24kg - 5/5, 5/5 = 100 Points
Total Snatch Points = 400
Grand Total = 910
