Well, that lil gain of last week was blown out of the water with my 3.6 lb loss this week. The sun was shining, I got to be outside, and all was good!
As Gray Cook says, "Extension equals reflex stabilization." That's just a fancy word for saying posture gives you balance.
Dr. Cheng says this during Neural Reboot 4 while doing the ankle rolls (may not be 100% word for word). I'd like to find Cook's original wording on this subject but I'm not familiar with him. If anyone can pinpoint this reference please let me know.
Now on to the scary part of the Reboot. I have NEVER EVER been able to do the splits. Not as a preschooler in ballet and tap and definitely not now. For it to be sneaked in on me like this is just cruel! LOL Eventually you're supposed to look like this.
So I don't come ANYWHERE near either of those. Here's what Dr. Cheng had to say about this week and the splits in particular.
The new foam rolling was for T-spine mobility. No pain from it but I can feel the pressure around my shoulder blades. I've labeled this picture to show the section that's rolled.
The sequence time was a big disappointment. Here I was ready to put the first two sequences together. Instead, it was repeating the sequence separately from weeks 3 & 6. I really want to put it all in one fluid motion now not piecemeal anymore!
