Hey Jim. This is a really awesome question. One, that's very pertinent to our movement industry and one that I hope will engage the group with many questions and much dialogue. And there's already been to Great answers prior to this one, am I won. So, the most consistent movement or strength dysfunction that I see that limits performance, whether it's general population, or athletic population, the No, I see. Most is confined spaces and not enough room in which to maneuver their body determinants. So what I mean by determinants, I mean, the joint spaces that executes motion. So if you've been sat down for years and years at your desk and haven't moved your joints in all three planes of motion, then you have confined spaces, you have not much afferent feedback. Back there for you. Don't have very good efferent feed-forward mechanisms and your ability to access muscle. Tissue is inhibited because you don't have ownership over your joints, therefore you can't access as much muscle tissue, as you would like to desire and therefore you accommodate in your exercise soon and your strength performance, hits a plateau, very soon. And worse case because you hit plateaus and your train the same tissue. Chances are that tissue yields breaks and injury, and shoes, athletic population. Same, although their athletic, they move generally with constraints, they move in similar ways, take it in the gym, the power athlete's body, builders that train bench, squat, deadlift, Etc, their training One Direction. So they're strong on one line and they're weak on every other line. And again because they can only access A certain muscle tissue plateaus a hick too soon. Whereas if they opened up and cultivated space and accessed more muscle, fiber to contribute to their exercise, their performance would be enhanced. So for me, expand joint ranges control, those joint ranges and will see strength and performance go up.
