Exploring Bodyweight Movement
The Three Elements of Physical Autonomy
If you’ve ever watched a talented athlete and envied their abilities, you know it’s a combination of factors that lead to such incredible performances.
But when you start training, you can easily get stuck fixating on just a small piece of the puzzle.
Sometimes, it’s the quest for maximal strength. Others, it’s the strict adherence to a system of skill progressions that lead towards a particular goal.
Either way, you’ll eventually get stuck unless you address the right combination of abilities.
The truth is that any skill you may want to do with your body is made up of three components: strength, flexibility, and motor control.
What will you get from this workshop.
For real-world movement ability you can rely on, it’s important to develop strength in all directions and even in unusual positions.
Flexibility and Mobility
Fewer restrictions in your ranges of motion means you can move with grace and ease.
Developing motor control is a lot like learning to write as a child. It requires patient repetition, and if you try to shortcut the work, you’ll always look sloppy.
Using 3 Core Movement Patterns you’ll get:
→ Stronger wrists, arms, torso, and hips.
→ More flexible hamstrings and extended range of motion in your shoulders.
→ Greater mobility in your ankles, hips and shoulders.
→ Balance, agility, and fluid transitional and improvised movement.
→ Comfort in odd, inverted, or unexpected positions.
