Think Fit. Be Fit.
Effective thinking for potent workouts
 
Think Fit. Be Fit. podcast is dedicated to optimizing exercise and overall human function.  It is best described as the intersection of exercise mechanics, muscle expertise, and embracing curiosity.  The human body is a wonderful teacher if you know how to listen to it, being open and having fun is part of that process.
 
Jennifer Schwartz, hostess and founder of Impact Your Fitness and Impact Sport Science Group has helped hundreds of athletes and people around Washington DC move without pain and exercise to their fullest potential.  
 
This podcast is important because people are missing out on living a better life because they don't understand that body awareness is a combination of taking feedback, listening, and learning.  It is not a practice of self-judgement and societal expectations.  Don't choose unhappiness over uncertainty.  Embrace the process!

In this installment, Dr. J and GG challenge a guiding principle of personal training, instructing specific, inviolable techniques.

Should we enforce movement rules and demand perfection - what’s perfect anyway? - or allow performers to self-organize and explore their own unique solutions? 

Joining the conversation is Dr. Lori Quinn, director of the neurorehabilitation research lab at Teachers College, Columbia University.  Together, they examine whether these conventions are empowering, or abolish our movement autonomy.  After all, whose movement is it anyway? 

In this episode:

 

  • Different models of motor control
  • Hypotheses on how we acquire skill
  • The concept of corrective exercise
  • Cueing and feedback, how do we use them appropriately?
  • The concept of the movement “bandwidth of error” and discuss what it means to allow our clients to be self-actualized “active learners.”

 

Glossary

 

Augmented Feedback - Any feedback that is given to a performer in addition to proprioception, vision, taste, smell, or hearing

 

Variability - The inherent property of human systems that movements are not perfectly consistent, but vary both within and between repeated trials
