Once I was in coaching to turn out to be an Alexander Approach instructor, there was a saying attributed to one of many senior academics.
NOTHING IS WORTH LOSING YOUR FRONT LENGTH OVER.
What did this imply?
Irrespective of the problem of the exercise, there isn’t a must sacrifice your physique by hunkering all the way down to get it finished.
Let’s check out this.
Hunkering down is once 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 enjoying a musical instrument, as finest you’ll be able to.
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 laborious.
I’m not addressing the concern you deliver to an necessary exercise, however to point out you ways you are able to do what you’re doing by not harming the physique with stress and compression of the joints.
Most individuals see this hunkering down and tensing up as a great 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 shouldn’t be good posture. I’ll grant you it could appear to be good posture, but it surely negatively impacts approach, by slowing down ease of motion. It impairs the messaging and pace of your reflexes in enjoying a musical instrument or serving a tennis ball.
When an individual focuses on a dynamically launched absolutely upright posture mixed with a dynamically launched approach, regardless of how intense the exercise is, you might be consciously selecting to do your best possible at a sport or musical instrument. You’re melding nice posture and nice approach, in a method that will get you out of the way in which of the pace 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 your finest in a specialised exercise may be about consciously creating nice physique use and approach, 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.
Then you definately actually get to take pleasure in what you’re doing within the second!
