- No overhead lifting- Dangerous for the shoulder
- No squatting or lunging with the knee past the toe- Dangerous for the knee
- Keep your spine neutral- Dangerous for the spine
- Draw in to activate TA- Protect the spine
And on and on ad nauseum. These are rules that made to be broken. When you follow rules like this the assumption is that the body lives, works and plays in a phone booth. These rules are artificial rules that don’t work. We live, work and play in a proprioceptively demanding environment that is ever changing. We are not robots; we are human problem solving and self organizing beings with amazing ability to adapt. We must give the body credit for the wisdom it possesses. Think connect and link to improve the quality of movement. Movement is rhythmic and dance like, not segmented and robotic. The rule I live by is to harmonize not roboticize.
