It is not necessary to make training or rehab complicated. It should be simple without being simplistic. Simplicity yields complexity. I feel if you can’t explain what you are doing in a sentence, then it is probably not worth doing. Training and rehab is simple movements leading to movements. Movement is fundamental to human existence. We should not have to think about movement. It is impossible to think about firing the glutes before the hamstring or whatever. That is taking a reflexive subconscious activity and making it conscious. That just creates robots. One movement sets up other movements, in essence setting off a chain reaction. All we have to do is initiate the movement voluntarily or involuntarily. “Simplicity means the achievement of maximum effect with minimum means.” Dr Koichi Kawana.
