I just spent the past two days learning from Dr. Ed Thomas. Dr. Thomas does not speak publicly often but when he does you would be very wise to take the time to listen. Dr. Thomas is an exercise historian, Physical education teacher/historian and a wealth of fitness wisdom and knowledge.
Gray Cook arranged for the FMS team to have this opportunity and we all learned a great deal during the two days. We studied breathing, Indian Clubs, Inversion, the ergonomics of sitting and the history of physical education and the switch over to sport and games. In short it was a crash course through history and exercise. I will be digesting this information and seeking mastery in some of the techniques for a lifetime.
Thank you Dr. Thomas for taking the time to share your knowledge.
So over the past few days I have practiced my breathing, learned the beginning of Indian Club swinging, Been turned upside down and had a great deal of mental exercise. That is my training over the past few days.
I also tore several decks of cards - 2 behind the back, several quartered halves, couple of regular tears, and one duct tape tear.
Now I am off to West Virginia to teach a day and half FMS and a half day of KBs.
Home Sunday night and off to work for 6 am client on Monday ;-)
