I got my schedule a little off this week. In that Yoga actually is supposed to happen on Wednesday. However I ended up missing that. Thus I’m stretching out with yoga X2 today.
One of my early goals with Yoga this time around was to be able to palm the floor in a forward bend. If you’ve been following the blog, you’ll know that the goal was reached. Today was no exception. I’m still able to palm the floor and that’s a great feeling.
Another move that has gotten better is one that I don’t know a name of. But it’s where you loop one arm under a leg while in a lunge and reach around to grab the wrist of the other arm that is wrapping around the back. Up until about phase 1 of this journey I was only ever able to touch my fingers. Getting to the point of being able to grab the wrist was never a thought.
The cool thing is… I can now grab my wrist in this move. I have to attribute this ability to the X2 program. It has strengthened my right shoulder and increased it’s range of mobility. No surgery, no specific physical therapy. I always thought at some point, due to an old injury, that I’d have to have it scoped to fix it. Appears that I have thought wrong. That makes me very happy.
I know that next week, when I get the right sequence to the workout, I’ll be doing an extra set of Ab Ripper X2 after the yoga workout. Still a little more to go on the little bit of puff on my lowest part of my 6-pack.
