Description

Are body-weight training and manual resistance functional and appropriate ways to train? We crawl before we walk and walk before we run. We usually ride a bike before we drive a car. Yet for some reason, we enter the gym long before we have mastered our own body weight! The science behind body-weight training and manual resistance shows amazing results relative to skill transfer, proprioception, range of motion, balance and strength. This type of training has a very low rate of injury and is shown to enhance the five most basics skills of functional movement.
