How are you walking?
I just watched a great video wherein Paul Chek talked about primal patterns and infant development and it sparked something in me. As babies we first learn we have a front and back then a top and bottom then left and right sides. We crawl then push and pull then we squat then we bend then lunge then twist and finally we walk. I find it fascinating so many people come to me wanting to train for whatever reason. They can walk relatively well yet have trouble completing a body weight squat, have no idea how to keep a neutral spine in a bend patterns and also have no spatial awareness in lunge patterns. These patterns have gone quiet, the neuromuscular pathways have atrophied due to a sedentary world we live in. These are usually the same folks doing a bunch of cardio and machine weight routines eating low fat diets and making no progress. I don't know it was just interesting how we start at A and end at Z yet many are walking around doing Z without the ability to do the prior steps.
