Getting Back to Nature - Natural Movements

Here is a great video by The Strength Box, which demonstrates some fun and playful movements. One thing we don't get enough of as adults is PLAY. How often do you just go and climb around  and crawl around on stuff? Trees, walls, hedges, stuff we used to climb all the time as kids. Our society seems to discourage this kind of behavior in adults these days, but why? Playing is good for your mind AND body, you get to have fun while building capacity in balance, coordination, and agility, three oft-neglected areas of fitness. So get out there, rebel against society's ignorance, and climb a tree, explore the outdoors, and play like you used to when you were a kid! But most importantly, HAVE FUN!
