The human genetic requirement for health is to engage in near constant, everyday movement—we are simply not built to sit around. If you are walking around with good muscle mass and good muscle strength, you have asked your organs to perform every time you do any kind of exercise—as soon as you start lifting a weight or jogging down the street, your heart, your lungs, kidneys, liver, everything has to kick into gear in order to support that activity. So this concept of technical failure I will be discussing in today’s show really means becoming attuned to the point where you can instantly feel when your form is starting to break down, so that is when you stop, and not a moment later.

Even if you are not interested in enrolling in the Primal Fitness Coach Certification course, there will be tons of great takeaways in this episode for anyone who wants to learn more about fitness and health by hearing this comprehensive overview of the certification course.
