RKC Level 2 - Wrap-up...
What a great weekend! Pavel lead the show off on Friday with a detailed teaching of the 5 Level 2 drills and continues to amaze me with the depth of knowledge and techniques he has available.
I had the first half of the day on Saturday and presented a 2 hour lecture on the Functional Movement Screen and some neurological based strength training information. This was followed by a 2 hour practical section where the attendees were able to learn some immediately applicable screening and corrective strategies.
Kenneth Jay presented a great talk on cardiovascular adaptations to KB exercise and how to maximize the cardiovascular effects of KB training. Then the attendees had a practical demonstration of the theory. ;)
Sunday got off to a start with a wonderful presentation by Andrea DuCane on working with deconditioned populations. Great tips and techniques for starting off in a very basic manner and progressing to more advanced moves.
Rif followed with a talk on length/tension relationships - what they mean and how to find them and how to address them (foam roller and other techniques). Staying "neutral" and plumb is so key.

All in all there was a huge mountain of information provided the attendees and I was very happy to be a part of it. The attnedees themselves were great - Wonderful to see familiar faces again and spend time with old and new friends.

plus all the info from you ,kenneth me and andrea is a gold mine of great stuff!
People really got their moneys worth for sure.

I hear you absolutely kicked some serious butt in your presentation over the weekend. Great job and congratulations on achieving such a high level in this industry. I must, repeat MUST get together with you learn some of this corrective information you and Gray Cook are teaching. After years of studying the CHEK system I see some parallels for sure but also a fresh and newer perspective I am interested in learning.

Look forward to making it happen in the near future!

It really is astounding what was provided at the Level 2 - money's worth for sure!

Franz - thank you and we will have to make that happen and I look forward to working with you and learning from you.

Brett, it was great to hang with you. And I am all abou tthe FMS. I'm meeting with my Chiro later to day to speak to him about it. And it was a good idea that you and Daniele didn't venture out with us. We did a shot every 36 seconds, a la Kenneth Jay's snatch protocol. It was ugly.

Sprinkling the drops right back to ya' buddy,

Really enjoyed meeting you & absorbing your presentation- it was every bit as excellent as people are saying! I look forward to learning & applying the FMS w/my clients asap- it's great!

Also, kettlebell trainer 0311 was right-- it's a good thing you didn't come out w/us on Sunday night... it was UGLY ; )
