Episode 27: Michol Dalcourt: What Training the Whole Body Really Means

Michol Dalcourt is the director of the Institute of Motion. He and I talk about what “farm kid fit” means and why it matters,  how are we are upright if our bones don’t touch?, how fascia moves the body- not just muscles- our body as a fluid organism and why we need to pay attention to its fluid dynamics, tensegrity! (one of my favorite subjects...), what he means when he says the body is a lever-less system and other concepts in the “new” biomechanics, why we need to zoom out and not just focus on the nervous system’s effect on muscles, and how the fitness industry’s go to approach of training for speed via more strength is actually slowing people down.
