Movement Is a Language: 2 Patterns to Develop Fluency
Body movement and posture is an important aspect of both working out and also just of everyday life. If done improperly, we risk injury and long term physical harm, which makes it imperative to do it correctly. Unfortunately many of us resort to relying on the intuitive, fast, easy movements that don’t take proper form, rather than learning the right way, which is often more difficult.
Just as when we learn a language, in which the ultimate goal is reach a level of fluency, so should the goal of better body movement and position become something we just do, without thinking about it. When we know how to do it right, and force ourselves to maintain it and practice it for long enough, it’ll become second nature. Breaking Muscle talks about the specific movements we should concentrate on:
The spine is the axis of our movement, and it plays a huge role in organizing our bodies as they move. Every movement, from the big, sexy Olympic lifts to more basic walking and locomotion, depend on spinal integrity.
The vertebrae act as a supple column, giving us our sense of what “vertical” means. Spinal movement is one of the earliest human developments. When these fundamental movements are compromised, we see big-time compensation later on. Repatterning spinal function has a tremendous impact not only on strength, but also on alignment and mobility.
This point becomes even more important when we consider how many of us spend inordinate amounts of time in chairs and at desks. The spine is a rather essential piece of machinery that we need to take better care of, check out the full post for details on how you can do that.
