Re: DDP doing some great things.

DDP's daughter promised to increase my flexibility but all she managed to do was increase my rigidity.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

Somebody got a good dose of Mom genes (assuming she is Kimberly's)

I'm still betting on mom genes cause DDP isn't all that attractive

Oh, she's adopted, so he had nothing to do with it.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

How much space do you need to do this? Can you do it in the living room?

This could be the only way I can get my wife to work out with me.

Yoga doesn't tend to require a ton of space

Re: DDP doing some great things.

You just need enough room to lunge forward, lunge backward, and your wing span. I would say the position that requires the most space is when you are on hands and knees with one arm fully extended out front and the opposite leg fully extended behind you. From this position, you also extend one arm out to the right or left, and the opposite leg to the opposite side.

I've been doing it with plenty of room to spare in a small 10' x 10' room that has some furniture in it.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

Do you guys follow a particular schedule or just free ball it?

Re: DDP doing some great things.

I started following the schedule initially, but decided to just freeball it. There were just too many days off on the Beginner schedule. He says you can do multiple workouts in a day -- just listen to your body and don't overdo it.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

I've been strictly following the schedule. Gets you through 39 weeks in the book. Quit lifting weights entirely since I started, but may add that back in once a week during an off day. Got through my first ENERGY today without modifying a single time.....although my legs were shaking for a half hour afterward.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

Did my first Fat Burner yesterday. Expected it to be tougher than Energy, but it wasn't....at least for me. Got through it just modifying the last pushup. I guess it's really a matter of how someone's built which sessions are going to be more or less difficult. For me it's staying in the supported lunge for extended periods that's been the toughest so far.

Anyway, still loving the DDPYoga. Highly recommend it for anyone still on the fence. I've told a few people that were looking for something but had no time because of kids that they can pretty much just do it with the kids a couple days a week.

Ending on a funny note, I now find myself randomly doing diamond cutters when I'm bored or zoning out, sometimes even in public if I'm not paying attention.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

This is a good page to like on Facebook - "the four horsemen". They have some good old school stories and interviews. This is one with DDP about the Macho Man:

Re: DDP doing some great things.

From F4Wonline.com

Quote:
Scott Hall will not be appearing at Saturday's Big Time Wrestling convention and show at Newark, CA High School that includes such names as Ric Flair, Ricky Morton, Robert Gibson, Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, Godfather and many others.

Hall was scheduled for the convention and to manage his son, Cody Hall. Scott texted promoter Kirk White and said he was in a dark place and refused to get out of bed for Cody and for DDP, who tried to get him to fulfill his booking. Cody Hall did make the trip and will be on the show Saturday night.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

Very sad.

I was watching a WCW ppv yesterday (Starrcade 96) and only then put together that DDP had managed Hall in the early 90's when Hall was "The Diamond Studd". Sad, I know.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

I remember Kevin Nash writing an extensive note saying that Hall suffers from PTSD and that it's always been at the core of his substance abuse issues. Intuitively I would think that makes him a higher relapse risk. Hopefully just a rough patch and nothing he can't overcome.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

God damn ****ing Broken Airplane! End up smashing my face into the floor every time.

Just finished the 13 week beginner schedule in the book. Think I'm going to stretch it out over half a year instead of moving up now redoing weeks 7-13 and then weeks 8-13. That should get me a full year out of beginner and intermediate.

It's amazing how I'm breezing through stuff I used to have to modify to get through in April.

How easy is it to get the right form? I mentioned DDPyoga to my wife and she said that you probably need to be in a class so yhe instructor can correct your form.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

I wouldn't really be concerned about that. He repeatedly says to make it your own and it's all normal people doing the workouts. I get a lot out of it without professional instruction.

Will probably give it a try in a few weeks when I move house and have some more space.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

Just finished the 1st 13 week program and Holy Balls at that Diamond Cutter workout! Everything else was 20-30 minutes and then 50 for this. Wasn't that bad at first, but I was about to collapse with 10 minutes left. Went to my knees on the 2nd 5 count push up and then sat on my couch and laughed at the 10 count one.
