The 12 hardest animal movements ever! These movements are for advanced trainees only.
The reason movement training and animal movements work so well for developing strength, mobility and many other physical attributes, is because you are using the body as a whole.
There is nothing wrong with isolation exercises, because they are very useful for fixing weak links and targeting certain parts of the body that may need more attention.
It's the over-emphasis on isolation exercises that destroys the equilibrium and diminishes your ability to move and control your body as a whole.
We have noticed that the balance is created when you combine these two extremes together: 1. full body movements (like animal movements) and 2. targeted isolative mobility drills.
This way you are getting the best out of both worlds: you are actually becoming good at moving your body as a whole (coordination, spatial awareness, agility, balance), but you are also making sure no area of the body gets overlooked.
In many ways you need to be both the surgeon and the wild animal to reach your full potential in fitness. Moving the way as the nature meant us to move is amazing for the body, but human knowledge also has plenty of wisdom in it.
If you want to get started in movement training and also possess the arsenal of many strengthening and mobility exercises, see Movement 20XX program for more information (suitable for beginners and beyond).
Be safe! These exercises are for advanced trainees only and they shouldn't be attempted by beginners! Do not take risks beyond your level of fitness.
