Creating Space-Age Movements

Many people think the traditional and familiar movements they are used to seeing people do all the time, are the only movements people can make, and if they are around others who move very little, have a much narrower idea of what that might be.

On the other hand, there are a few people, who always seem to be creating new movements -- just because they can, and like to. Such people are those with a high physical intelligence that is a creative genius -- often having their movements named after themselves -- as their signature moves while they were active competitors. But many more never compete and have no desire to.

So for people to think that walking, running, pushups and sit-ups are all that one can do, and are the best exercises one can do (to get into condition), is the common thinking of those who invariably fail to get the results they think they should because they can’t do them enough to make a difference.

But when one does something that is tremendously productive, that is very obvious and they continue to do them, instead of abandoning them first chance out of boredom. If it doesn’t make a difference, then simply doing more ot them, is not going to be magically transformative at some point.

In discussions of exercise at the highest level, they invariably mention the problem of astronauts in space deteriorating in their conditioning and health because of the problem caused by weightlessness -- which is only a problem and an excuse because the exercises they can’t continue to do is ineffective in space -- just as it is on earth!

What doesn’t change is that the human body remains healthy and operational because of the hydraulic, fluid and air pressures within the body that remain the same -- even in space, and it would be very clear that what works in space, works as effectively anywhere on earth -- and that is moving the gas and liquids throughout one’s body with greater efficiency and effectiveness.

Exercises of this effectiveness, continue to work in outer space with no diminution of effectiveness because there is the proper understanding that what matters is the movement within the body -- and not outside of it, in relation to external references -- which is the traditional thinking about exercise.

Range of motion is still limited range of motion -- regardless of the gravitational resistance, or absence of it. All the pressures within the body, must be maintained as they are while on earth. Maybe it becomes clearer with restricted space and movement and other resources, that the operating conditions of the human body must remain constant within the body -- and that there is the same resistance to the extreme ranges of any movement regardless of external pressures, and simply moving at the axes of these extremities, causes full muscular contraction and relaxation -- the same as they would on earth.

In such a manner, full muscular contraction from the extremities to the center (origin) of the muscular attachments at the center of the body, create the required tension so that bone-loss from such lack of stimulation should not be a problem. In fact, it is the superior stimulation throughout the length of the bones rather than at perpendicular angles to it that have much less functional value. Bones compress through their length rather than width to provide their greatest strength.

The point is that they work anywhere -- under any conditions, and gravity (weightlessness) should have no effect on the desired outcome.
