Let’s say you have a lever that can move in every direction (for example, the shoulder). Up, down, in, out, twist this way and twist that way, left and right – this lever can do it all. How many ropes and pulleys (in fixed positions, like muscles are) would it take to move that thing in all those directions? What would keep the lever from from going too far in one direction when a certain rope is pulled too hard? How many more ropes and pulleys would be required to hold the lever in place while other ropes are yanking on it? What if you only had a limited number of ropes and pulleys to use to make that lever go through its entire circle(s) of movement? On top of all those questions, what would be required of those ropes if we put, say, a couple hundred pounds at the end of that lever? Yeah, I think you’re getting the picture now.
The message for this first part in what will most likely become a multi-part lecture series about the paramount importance of efficient movement, is that you probably move like crap and it’s killing your “Fran” time.
