All the cool kids are doing it...

After seeing that Geoff, Brett Jones, Andrea DuCane, Rif,and Kenneth Jay are all doing Z-health in some form I got curious.

Not wanting to be left out of the Sr. RKC cool kids club, I got the R Phase and have begun practicing the exercises. It is very simliar movement to joint mobility I have been doing for years, but the intent is very different and the reps are much lower. I like it a lot.

The focus is on perfect repetition with NO tension. Very tough thing to do, believe me. Check it out for yourself.

I've been playing around with it for a couple of months. It works well if you can relax. This is the hardest part for me.

Actually Dave, you post should read, "Geoff, Rif, Brett,..." since I started doing it first...But seriously, that's only the case because I had to--nothing else worked. I probably would be the last one to do Z if I hadn't broken myself. In that light, it'll be very interesting to see what you get from it since you're injury-free (as far as I know...)

it does say you name first....

i got some old injuries, i just don't whine about them...;)

Well, obviously I look like an idiot. I could've sworn--ah, nevermind.

Have you noticed any changes from practicing R-Phase yet?

Iron Tamer said...

G$, it's called editing...;)

Have only played witht eh individual drills and done the full-body thing twice, so nothing much yet.

I am almost certainly not doing them corrcetly yet, given the small bit of practice.

I am going to begin the 8-week reccomendation from the manual tomorrow, so in a couple of months I should have some idea of what I am doing.

Very cool! The Z pool has nice warm water and welcome!
Keep us updated on how it goes. Precision is key with the drills.
Rock on

I am finding that the 'Senior RKC Effect' is one of the best ways to catch on to new things as well. I know that at no time will I find a recommendation to attend a hot new body sculpting class. Am currently reviewing my Z Health materials.
