Vacation is OVER! Man, I can't leave you guys alone for a second!

I started what I call my "10 x 10 Project" on a very personal level.  I know what a difference regular exercise and physical consciousness can make in the quality of our lives on so many levels that, if I let it, it just kills me when people that I love and care about can't bring themselves to take 5-10 minutes of their day to improve their health.  "Exercise and physical consciousness" is about staying connected with the health of our bodies and not let ourselves be fooled by the instant gratification of overeating and maybe ignoring small weight gains that much too often can turn into large weight gains.  But it's your life.

This past December I lost 5 clients that never returned to training after the holidays.  I'm not surprised because it's not unusual when people lose momentum they give up, and not just with exercise, it may happen with many new habits we all decide to establish.  Personally you all know I never skip workouts, and the biggest reason why is that I never want to lose the momentum that I know only consistency breeds.  This is also why I asked my long time client/training partner Meg to substitute lead my classes if and when I have to be away from teaching.  It's not for me, it's for my other students and clients, so they don't have any reason to quit training while I'm gone!  I don't want them to lose their momentum!

So, this may or may not be where you find yourself right now.  I purposely tried my best to post new, informative, progressive, motivating 10 x 10's in the beginning, even pre-taping some videos to post at times I knew I might not have the time or energy for.  But I can see that maybe I left some of you alone too long!  So let's start again, shall we?  We left off with one hand swing practice and I used these progressions to start off The Swing Quest 2014.  I mentioned pre taping and I did that for five 10 x 10's all done "equal work to rest" so the pace is pretty swift.  Here in this video I take you back to longer rest periods, still practicing the progressions.  I add more tips and reasons about the one hand swing, and at the end of the 10 sets I lead you through 5 more sets, 15 sec work/rest, just like the workouts from The Swing Quest.  I'm also posting the first two 10 x 10's taken from TSQ so if you want to continue on it's all here for you!  Enjoy!  Oh, and welcome back :)
