Once I was in coaching to turn out to be an Alexander Approach trainer, there was a saying attributed to one of many senior academics.
NOTHING IS WORTH LOSING YOUR FRONT LENGTH OVER.
What did this imply?
Regardless of the issue of the exercise, there isn’t any must sacrifice your physique by hunkering all the way down to get it accomplished.
Let’s check out this.
Hunkering down is while you pull your head ahead and downward, shortening your neck, and curving your backbone ahead and down, as an expression of your intention to do what you’re doing, in a sport or taking part in a musical instrument, as finest you may.
IT IS THIS INTENTION TO DO YOUR BEST AT WHATEVER THE ACTIVITY, THAT CAUSES MOST PEOPLE TO TENSE UP AND HUNKER DOWN.
It’s the concern of failure that causes most individuals to strive TOO exhausting.
I’m not addressing the concern you deliver to an essential exercise, however to point out you the way you are able to do what you’re doing by not harming the physique with rigidity and compression of the joints.
Most individuals see this hunkering down and tensing up as a very good factor, that means you are attempting to do your finest.
CAN YOU DO YOUR BEST WITHOUT TENSION OR HUNKERING DOWN? YOU CAN ONLY DO YOUR BEST IF YOU DON’T TENSE UP AND HUNKER DOWN TO DO YOUR BEST.
What do I imply?
If an individual desires to do his or her finest in an exercise, THEN THEY CAN ONLY DO SO WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE TECHNIQUE OF THE ACTIVITY WITH POOR POSTURE (HUNKERING DOWN OR BEING RIDGIDLY UPRIGHT).
Rigidly upright is just not good posture. I’ll grant you it could appear to be good posture, however it negatively impacts method, by slowing down ease of motion. It impairs the messaging and velocity of your reflexes in taking part in a musical instrument or serving a tennis ball.
When an individual focuses on a dynamically launched totally upright posture mixed with a dynamically launched method, regardless of how intense the exercise is, you’re consciously selecting to do your easiest at a sport or musical instrument. You’re melding nice posture and nice method, in a approach that will get you out of the best way of the velocity of your reflexes.
GREAT TECHIQUE AND POSTURE BECOME INSEPARABLE, AND THE PERFORMANCE OR COMPETITION CAN BECOME EXTRAORDINARY WITHOUT WEAR AND TEAR TO YOUR BODY.
So, doing all of your finest in a specialised exercise might be about consciously creating nice physique use and method, regardless of the extent of concern earlier than a contest or a efficiency.
IF YOUR BODY IS NOT EXHIBITING/MANIFESTING YOUR FEAR, THE EMOTIONAL FEAR MAY DROP AWAY IN A SPORTS COMPETITION OR A MUSICAL PERFORMANCE.
You then actually get to get pleasure from what you’re doing within the second!
