Movement is the essence of prevention and the expectation for progression. This is the importance of breathing well and proper alignment; for the system to remain functional each day. The more functional you are, the better you can move, feeling the results and benefits. But when one does not function well or understand function, it gets replaced by a poor qualitative, substandard and inefficient functioning system to power movement, ineffective to produce quantity. The biggest problem is, if you are not effective at the functional level, you will NOT be functional to climb and progress to an advanced level. As you load more and more strength and force on compensation, weakness and dysfunction, its just a matter of time till one movement does you wrong, due to imbalance. Imagine a seesaw, where you add 20 lbs. to one side and not the other. Then you add 40 lbs. to one side and not to the other. This is joint misalignment, poor posture and joint instability happening. As you strength train, your strength gets stronger that can move more force. But this is detrimental on a body with imbalance. Alignment provides balanced strength to form on all levels allowing the mechanical advantage to produce range of motion optimally. Misalignment and poor posture restricts motion and limits range of movement, losing the mechanical advantages efficentcy to be effective. Also the lack of stability in joints makes muscles develop more tension, producing imbalance and isolated strength in muscles. The lack of being mindful allows poor quality to exist and stay stuck, losing the ability to adapt, adjust and change. Being functional, strong and powerful is all dependent on the quality of breathing, alignment, stability and being mindful. It is foundation that guides movement.
Misalignment, poor posture, shallow breathing and poor stability all contribute to entropy. These effects are responsible for pain, injury, disorders and disease. Entropy and gravity will always exist, but we can control and slow down the forces they exert on our youth, energy, vitality and health, trying to make us sedentary, shorting our longevity. Entropy sneaks through the cracks when we breathe shallow, have poor posture, misalignment, eat poorly and move less. Leading a more conscious and mindful life is the first step in controlling and preventing entropy. How we move, eat and live presents us the control panel to maintain, adjust or change. Like Dr. Katz says in his book, Disease Proof, we need to make ourself disease proof through change, adapting better tools and skills to affect our health. At the same time, we need to develop better skills to make ourself pain and injury proof. Movement and exercise are necessities that contribute to becoming disease, pain and injury proof. Preserving the functional operating system is how we produce effective movement results and prevent the risk to affliction. If you can maintain movement then youth and agelessness are simple. This is my goal for you. It is the mindfulness in the things we do that produces an ageless mind and body.
