042. Unleashing your Primal Potential - Erwan Le Corre, Adam Von Rothfelder, Michael Phillip

LISTEN

imageDo me a favor- stand up. No problem, right?  Now walk around. That’s pretty easy, huh?  Next, smash the nearest wad of food into your mouth hole.  Isn’t this fun?  Ok, sit down, look at the screen, and you’re done! Sound familiar?  I know to me it does.  I practice that sequence of movements with the religious regularity of a devout Muslim.  I’m going to make a tremendously presumptuous leap and assume that you do the same.  Isn’t it sad that it’s that obvious?  If you’re reading this, you’re probably lucky enough to be a normal-ish, healthy-ish human being, so you’ve got some serious untapped potential.

To get our sorry asses to this cushion, our ancestors had to do some pretty epic forest-dwelling.  For them, remaining physically sound was an absolute necessity.  If they couldn’t forage, hunt, fight off enemies and keep the blood line going through some good, old-fashioned humping, you wouldn’t even be here right now.  Yet, here we are, living and breathing.  For god’s sake, let’s not waste it.

Ok, so what does “not wasting it” look like?  Well that’s up for debate, so let’s defer to someone who has a very highly developed answer to that query.

Is it just me, or was that way more awesome than going to the gym and bench pressing a useless amount of weight while some roided-out dude comments on your poor technique?  Don’t get me wrong, the gym is great and most of us can’t go to the woods often enough to ever be able to do what just happened in that video.  But, believe it or not, everything you just saw has real technique that you can learn.  In fact, Lecorre has dedicated his life to understanding and mastering the technique of natural human movement and now he’s spreading what he’s learned like gospel.
