    Primal Movement

    Does anyone engage in or have experience with primal movement stuff?

    Workshops, warm-ups, good bad experiences?

    I've got a primal movement experience for you if your wife's home later.

    A lot of G/BJJ people in the 1990's did yoga, breathing training, and animal gymnastica.

    I don't really know much about primal movement training,
    but if it is that stuff that Conor McGregor is doing,
    then the animal gymnastica probably had similar theoretical grounding.

    She likes to let you think you're winning and then she heel hooks you.

    I'm sure it does. I see guys selling it as if these ideas are new. I was curious if there were any new insights being applied. But since everybody seems to be trying to sell worships, retreats and Web subscriptions it makes me think that it's likely old stuff in a douchie new package. I have a book about a choreographer that was doing this stuff since the 30's.

    Mobility is what you are after. full range of movement of the joint. Balance of opposing muscle groups, stuff like that.

    I don't think you need a workshop to figure it out. There is stuff all over the internet about what I wrote above.

    Go to the playground and climb around on one of these...


    Or one of these:


    You can make up routines using sports specific movements as well.

    That's what my gut was telling me. One time I went to a running workshop. I got a couple things out of it but, it wast worth $110.00. Although, I did learn quite a few adults turn their right foot out when more when running from working the gas pedal in their car.

    Once you're aware that such adaptations take place, it's a simple matter to be aware of them and correct the behaviors.

    As to the subject of the thread, my opinion on Primal movement is the same as most of these things. There are many ways to train and many of them can be beneficial and challenging. Personally I think we get too bogged down in the details sometimes. Virtually none of us is so advanced in our training that the minute details are going to factor into our success. For most of us, the simple act of training hard is what we need to focus on. Use any methodology that helps you accomplish this.

    Rule of thumb for training activities:
    Good: anything at all that challenges you.
    Better: anything that challenges you and is directly targeted at what you're intending to improve I .
    Best: doing part b and also regularly participating in the actual activity of interest.

    It's a fad. There are endless ways to achieve athleticism.

    Over all I am not against the concept per say.
    I wouldn't throw out any extra money for it though.
    Of the kind of we are reinventing exercise crowd this guy is the only one I might throw down some money to see.

    Should note exercise does not need to be "reinvented".
    Though there is a lot of myths and misinformation to wade through.
