Movement Hierarchy by K-Star

April 06, 2012

Movement Hierarchy from Kelly Starrett.  If K-Star writes a book, ailment this is probably his thesis.  CrossFit teaches the squat in a similar sequence, and maybe the knowledge is innate, but K-Star explains how a movement goes from simple to complex.

As a coach, we can use these concepts to help build workouts and training plans.  As an athlete, understanding movement hierarchy can help you prepare your body for movement, and understand why stuff is hard.

Does that mean beginning athletes just receive simple movements?  No, but understanding concepts like movement hierarchy can help us (and you) scale movements to get the best bang for the buck.
