What I have been missing.
I woke this morning after 9 hours sleep - excellent for growth hormone - in quite a bit of pain. DOMS! I am conditioned to powerlift; 4 big heavy lifting sessions a week that take 2-3 hours to complete due to the full rest intervals of up to 10 minutes between each set. So you can imagine my delight yesterday when I tried out some of Poliqiun's body composition methods , 6-12-25 with no rest, GBT supersetting upper and lower extremities with 30 secs rest. I had such a great time going over the 6 rep mark, and I even hit the leg press machine for the first time in 3 years - woo hoo!! This morning I woke with DOMS in my lower glutes - very foreign experience for me.
It was a long day of learning and prac yesterday and today will be just as long. We have structural balance assessment exam today, and PICP theory. I think I will be OK with these, although the rules and guidelines are very strict and I need to pay close attention to the details. I can be a "big picture" person too much on occasion - which is why I team well with detail oriented individuals.
Milos Sarvec came and introduced himself to the class yesterday and apparently he is taking us all through one of his "famous" workouts today. I am figuring that "famous" means "puke inducing", so it will be very interesting to see how I do. I expect that the power athletes might have some trouble.
While we were at the gym yesterday there was a photo shot for Flex magazine, with a very large and in shape male body builder. I didn't take my camera - damn! He was pretty big too!
The Poliquin Instructors are awesome and really well credentialed, with the head instructor being a former Olympian and coach of many professional sports teams and current Olympic teams. The knowledge Rod and I are both gaining is exceptional and the exposure to such high level people will only improve our business significantly. Just having these people in our network to call upon is a massive boost for us. We are coming back next year to further our knowledge - that is for sure.
I need to do some last minute review before class.
Good luck to Wendy today!
