Think of movement as risk. Not normalcy.

October 14, 2019

0

We who move people have caused an awful lot of confusion about what’s appropriate and what isn’t. To the point it’s become common to get a stick up one’s ass about “abnormal” movement. Half the world thinks a hunchback posture means your body is terrible while half the world thinks posture is irrelevant. There has […]

For a number of years research has been coming out on sham surgeries. Background: We long ago discovered our thoughts can influence our biology. Thus, with drugs we always want to give placebo pills so we can figure out how much of the benefit is from that mysterious mind of ours. With surgery a placebo is […]

The dubious value of laboratory fitness

July 8, 2019

0

This is the most impressive performance I know of: The combination of physical and mental? Basically by one individual, not a team of people? Man, if you know something better, something stretching the limits of what a human can do in a more comprehensive manner, let me know. Not to mention that Youtube video has, […]

Don’t get your identity wrapped up in your fitness
