CONCEPT 3 - PUSH + PULL
Push + Pull is opposing forces that allow us to create locomotion, spiraling, stabilization, mobilization, and ultimately optimization of Range of Motion (ROM)
The more you push in one direction, as you pull in the opposing direction the more laser focused the force into specific lines. This is a huge tool to compose and direct energy wherever you choose... Gaining that extra range goes a long way!
We do this in most of our movements already.
In walking and running, one leg pushes & one leg pulls
In opening a door or any proper pulling technique, one are pulls & the other pushes (you may not feel it but it does)
In swimming, opposite arm/leg pushes & pulls
In balancing on one leg, one leg drives down & the other pulls up
In throwing, kicking, punching, pretty much anything!
As you can see this concept is extremely related to the previous concept of locomotion & spiraling.
This section is to get you to go deeper into pushing & pulling beyond your normal ranges to see how far you can truly tap into your body.
