Did you know that we as a society are exercising more now than ever, yet despite this truth, chronic disease prevalence seems to be on the rise?
How could this be?
In this audiobook, Dr. Chris Leib explains how today’s health and fitness industry has placed far too great an emphasis on heart rate elevation and caloric expenditure at the expense of the development of new movement skills that help promote health, well being, and durability. Dr. Leib uses current scientific research to demonstrate which movements and habits are most worth prioritizing in order to develop our bodies and minds in a manner that allows us to enjoy active and happy lives as we age. Furthermore, he describes his "movement continuum" for indicating what we “are ready for” within any movement or exercise we wish to train so that we do not need to feel apprehensive when undertaking unfamiliar habits that promote healthy change.
Blending the fields of physical therapy, strength, and conditioning, nutrition, and positive psychology, Longevity Through Movement, provides a unique look at the decisions we make when considering our quality of life, and gives us a direct path for optimizing our health, happiness, and longevity.
