Move It or Lose It
June 10, 2021
What’s your best friend’s phone number?
Who was your second grade teacher?
What was your locker number in high school?
Can’t recall? Don’t feel bad when we don’t use what we learn, our memories decay until we forget, the same can be said with our motion.
Today, we look at how our movement can erode over time and how western culture magnifies this phenomenon. We discuss how our brains learn, the idea of muscle memory, and how reconnecting your system might just be easier than you think.
So let’s get going with today’s Movement Podcast -- powered by FMS.
