Podcast cover
Read more

When we focus on the condition of our bodies, we tend to approach it with an exercise science mindset. What if we worried less about achieving the ideal range of motion of, say, the shoulder joint, and just focused on doing actual things with those shoulders on a regular basis? Our cultural experience with healthy, functioning bodies is still driven by a deficit mindset, but developing a deeper understanding of why movement matters involves a bigger question: What are you after in the end?
