broader thinking


   What does structural collapse do to movement?


1. Inner, deep, gentle, foundational muscles weaken: we deteriorate/collapse as we aren't held up.

2. Outer muscles have to hold us up but also move us, doing more work than they should.

3. Outer muscles also shorten/lengthen (weaken) to deal with the collapse.

4. Joints are pulled out of position, some joints are compressed.

5. Internal organs are compressed, and pumping energy around the body restricted.

6. Gravity's forces no longer falling centrally through the body or the joints, inertia is created.

7. Body tissues clump together to support the now unsupported body, resulting in awkward side-to-side lumbering movements.

8. The body is slower to move, and requires more energy than it needs to move in any direction and suffers more wear and tear.

9. Every movement is a lot harder than it should be, like running uphill when we're actually running on flat ground.

No wonder people need inspiration or extra motivation to run or exercise, or think it’s so normal to wear the body out. Doing activity does not wear the body out. Doing activity on a structurally collapsed body does.
