020 w/ Katy Bowman: Movement Nutrition and Mechanical Diseases

MS 020

Katy Bowman is a biomechanist and one of the only ones in the world that looks into the mechanical causes of disease and how it’s not enough to get an hour or two of exercise…we have to move more (and better) and get the movement nutrition that our biology craves.

Quotes by Katy
“You adapt to what you do most frequently….not what you do with the best of intentions.”

“We’re bent on trying to fix our problems, without changing the environment in which the problem was created.”

“You have ‘casted’ your body by walking only on flat, level ground.”

“We’re all overdosing on Vitamin Sit On Your Butt.”
