Move Your DNA

Move Your DNA43. Move Your DNA by Katy Bowman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read a brief excerpt from this book which had me worried it was going to be a very technical read but was pleasantly surprised by its conversational tone. Very readable. The more detailed bits are either in sidebars or are woven nicely into the text.

This book had some missing pieces for me regarding positioning and outlook when it comes to mobility.

Exercise is only a very small part of movement; it's what you're doing all the time you need to keep in mind.

That said, the book does contain exercises to help get your body back to its natural state (i.e. not sitting most of the day for one). I like the calf stretch on page 97. I'll be trying out more of them while incorporating more movement throughout the day.

Highly recommended.
