Natural movement?

Post by manio » Thu Feb 04, 2010 7:55 am

Does anyone have any experience training the "natural" way? I accidentally found a website http://movnat.com/

It's about bringing our training beck to basics - concentrating on specific skills like crawling, running, swimming. Sounds interesting to me. :smile:

It seems that this kind of training gets more and more popular. You can also find some pretty interesting videos on youtube.

It reminds me of the system developed by Georges Hebert. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges_H%C3%A9bert

This system inspired Parkour and I'm sure that Erwan Le Corre got the idea from him as well. Variations of this are practiced by those living the Paleo lifestyle. Fitness trails are being incorporated into parks now partly in response to this.

Isn't these workout ideas pretty much trying to get cardiovascular work back to mainstream?

I recommend swimming due to the huge amounts of calories burned plus a total body workout. Also low very low impact unless you slip off the diving board and hit it with your head! haha I never done that but seen it once lol

Kind of reminds me of the caveman workouts and or diets.
