As coaches, we tend to make movement more complex than we need to. Our body moves based on where we are today, how we’ve moved in the past, and what we do on a daily basis. We are born with appropriate ranges of motion, it’s what we do that allows us to hang on to it, or lose it. As coaches, we are here to restore and enhance functional movement.
