Movement Practice


Movement Practice is Based on 3 Principles

Principle 1:  The Joint by Joint Rule
The Joint by Joint Rule states that each joint of the body has a mobile or stable duty while moving in functional biomechanics.  
“The whole is greater, than the sum of its parts”     

Movement Principle 2:  Move as ONE

Functional movement is defined as optimal joint biomechanics in human movement.  Their are 7 fundamental patterns also called archetypes of the human movement system.  By practicing the 7 patterns correctly, the body will be durable and resistant to soft tissue breakdown and postural disfunction.  Performance is optimally achieved when joint flexibility and mobility are in sync with stabile positioning.

Move with intention,
Move like water – Bruce Lee

The “Balance 7” functional movements are as follows:   
1.  Squat 2. Lunge  3. Hinge  4. Push  5. Pull 6. Rotate 7. Locomotion
