Humans have a biomechanical blueprint primarily catered towards standing and moving in a bipedal fashion (on two feet). Besides breathing, it is quite likely that standing and walking are the most common actions done by humans on a daily basis. This is the foundation we must work around if we expect to come to a definitive conclusion of conditioning a human body towards its biological strengths.
Since standing upright is the fundamental element that shapes us as the human species, it has to be the base point of efficiency for any sustainable training system. Through my experience working with all types of individuals young and old, I have found that optimizing the standing position is the root of developing effective movement patterns, which in turn sets the foundation up for a neurologically and physiologically healthy human being. After the standing position has been mastered to its fullest extent, the tasks of bending down to lift, squatting deeply, jumping, twisting, and throwing, along with many other bodily actions become streamlined almost automatically.
Once this Human Foundation of efficient posture is wired in, the body becomes immediately more adaptable because it is operating efficiently from its biological base point.
Every training system I have witnessed has failed to set up a foundation based around human biological sustainability. We are constantly sold on ideas that make promises but fail to deliver results that can last for a lifetime. It is the lack of knowledge from these fitness "gurus" that has been leading people down the path of self destruction. Injuries, pain, lack of energy, along with many other imbalances found in human beings can and will be re-enforced by a system that is flawed at a foundation. Their failure to understand the nuances of what shapes human biology is what makes their training system at their core, completely unsustainable.
Standing efficiently in an upright manner is the ultimate foundation to work from if we can expect to live pain free, perform optimally, maintain our metabolism, exude confidence, manage stress, elevate libido, and down right just plain be healthy. I wrote this book for the purpose of explaining the nucleus of my entire training system, so that anyone can master the foundations of efficient movement that will transfer to a lifetime of vitality!
