Spirals & Locomotion - Concept #2
This video is the Why, the movement drills that follow are the HOW.
Movements we will be exploring...

Power is in Spirals & Locomotion. Our limbs are just an extension of what the spiraling & locomotion creates.
The definition of Locomotion is literally moving from one place to another. Spirals is how we get there.
We Spiral every day all day long. Whether you're bending over to tie your shoes, putting on a seat belt, putting something up on a shelf, walking, running, throwing, kicking, swimming, pretty much any and all movement!
Yet it's not a staple in most training programs hence many people get hurt in these positions because they don't practice being in them. Spiraling and Locomotion was how ALL of us moved without being taught as babies and young children.
It's primitive and natural.
And you've done it before. You were just super young, so let's retrain these patterns with crawls, opening up the front line, and deep twists.
Think of this section of returning to your roots of how you naturally moved before you could spell the word "movement".
My hope is that you begin to see Spirals & Locomotion in your everyday life, not just in these exercises, and start applying your mindful movement with this program to your Daily life outside your exercise regimen.
