So I spent all day yesterday and today in a seminar, and it was FANTASTIC! The man who spoke, Rodney Corn, is amazing in the depth of his knowledge of functional anatomy, exercise progressions, program design, correcting muscle imbalances -- you name it, he knows it! It will take a little time to incorporate some of the concepts I learned, but it was definitely time well spent.
One of the funny things about going to a training seminar is that we didn't have desks or tables. We all sat on Reebok decks and by the end of the day, half the people were on the floor or on stability balls or doing stretches -- this is not a population that sits still very well!
On the training front, I'm stopping training with Tony, but is has nothing to do with him. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for online training, and someone who really puts his all into what he does. But right now I'm feeling so overwhelmed with kids back in school, new clients, and life that I just can't commit to workouts that take me outside of my comfort zone. So I'm going back to my old bodyweight, dumbbell, kettlebell circuit-style workouts, with some running thrown into the mix. And I'm looking forward to getting back to what I really enjoy doing. But I learned a lot from Tony and I'm very thankful for that!
