As humans evolved we gave up a muscular approach to movement and went for a more efficient approach involving the ingenious foot that we have today and standing tall to create an elastic approach to propulsion. Present day human would lose an arm wrestle with a chimpanzee but definitely be victorious in a park run! It’s fascinating that todays human insists on attempting to use muscle to move dynamically instead of the evolutionary gift of elasticity. This has been the focus for my coaching and research with athletes, tribes and indigenous people across 6 continents. If we move the way we evolved, our fascial system will create strength, elastic recoil and the correct sea of tension to support our skeleton.
To maximise our potential we must take human movement and turn it into human performance.
