You’ve never eaten a whole chicken in one sitting? How much can a man really know about himself if he’s never eaten a whole chicken? I do it on the regular, I’d say at least once a month. My favorite recipe to date is the NomNomPaleo “Easiest Roast Chicken Ever.” For $44.00 at Trader Joe’s you can get 2 whole chickens and a butt load of tasty veggies. You could do far worse. It’s an even better deal if you eat less than the whole chicken in one sitting…that’s the way I celebrate pay day.
Normally I don’t do shit on Thursdays, it’s my day to relax, do nothing but some light mobility and prep mentally for pushing had Friday and Saturday. Today changed that that a little; I setup an appointment with a good friend, and friend of the blog, James Harris. I got a mobility assessment when I was down in Memphis but I wanted a local contact point to really keep an eye on progress and help tailor my efforts as things start to clear up. It’s really important for me not to spin my wheels, because I’ll find the time to do more, but rarely will have the peace of mind to scratch things out. Not to mention a fresh pair of eyes will never hurt, you’ll see something a new way, a new cue can change the way you see the world.
James was great, he did a full assessment, walked me through the results, and started to work up a few corrections. The part I really enjoyed is that James is RKC certified and uses a lot of kettle bell movements as corrective exercisess which is something you still don’t see much of. I’ve only just started up with this so I can’t say it’s the best medecine, but I’m always excited to try new things. And as always, every time I talk to James for more than 20 minutes I go home and buy a new kettle bell I have a couple of heavy ones for home workouts and some mobility work, but for a lot of the mobility, corrective exercises type stuff a lighter one makes a lot more sense, so 16kg here we come. I’m sure I’ll be mentioning this more in the future.
