So far, I am loving the foundational knowledge I am gaining through reading this article. Thank you for going through the mechanics of movement, especially as they pertain to the "core" muscles.

Chuck, this is such a great article. A lot of information. And yes I do appreciate it. Looking forward to hearing you speak at Equinox next month.

As the author of this article, my reply is in response to the lack of critical review of the information presented. This article is based upon pure human movement, a subject that is still not fully understood within the fitness, rehab, and sports performance world. The problem I often see within the fitness world is that trainers do not want to learn the complexities of human movement and why we move in particular manners. Instead, they want the "what"...the exercise without any rationale of why an exercise is prescribed.
It takes time to understand the principles and concepts of movement, and as a PTontheNet author, I have to consider the various levels of expertise and competence of the readership and develop a foundation as a basis of the content I write. When an empirical criticism about information is made, that is worth sending out...not someone's subjective, non-informative comments.

I found the article FAR too long, and drawn out. The author could have very easily gotten to the point much quicker.

A lot of verbal jargon to get to simple exercises that are done everyday?
