Kenzai Reach - Burnout 

  • Aug 29th, 2018 at 2:55PM

This training round was a total flop for me. In reflecting on why, I've come to this conclusion. I needed a break from a structured training cycle and didn't listen to my body/brain. From time to time, I like to step back from Kenzai and come back with a fresh enthusiasm and perspective. With that learning, I've decided to wait until October for another training cycle when I will tackle Kettlebell. I've heard such good things about the program, and its timed perfectly to give me some space to relax and regroup.

In the meantime, I'll be here doing lighter exercises that focus on rehabilitating my core. It's odd...my core feels strong and integrated, especially in the balance poses, but I still struggle with bladder control issues and a slight gap in my abs. My goal for the next 6 weeks is to do daily simple deep core exercises. Consistency over intensity.

Thanks for always being supportive, even when I am off the grid.

Jenny, you're not alone in wanting to get away from the structured training programs. I have been taking a break since we both completed the Sculpt program. Now I am looking forward to starting again in September. You'll love the kettlebell program. It'll boost you up. Rest up and work on something unstructured you want and feel comfortable with. I enjoyed reading your blogs on your trips.

    From wiki:

    Periodization is the systematic planning of athletic or physical training. The aim is to reach the best possible performance in the most important competition of the year. It involves progressive cycling of various aspects of a training program during a specific period. Conditioning programs can use periodization to break up the training program into the OFF-SEASON, preseason, inseason, and the postseason. Periodization divides the year round condition program into phases of training which focus on different goals.

    OFF-SEASON is in build for a reason. It helps stimulate new grow and allows the mind-body to integrate all it has learned! Enjoy some more time off the grid, Jenny. We'll be here when you are ready to ramp things up again. COMPLETE!

      Jenny, I appreciated reading this the other day. It helped me feel more comfortable about my successive approximation of Reach. I am moving into a Kenzai "recess" too. Perhaps we shall mesh again in the future. All the best.

        Good luck with the off season rehabilitation Jenny. And let us know once you figure out how to fix the bladder control issues, nothing I’ve tried works.

            I totally, totally get it! I jumped into Chisel because I loved it so much last time, but realized I should have taken a longer break to regain my discipline and enthusiasm. We live and learn :-) Enjoy the break and see you again later this year!
