Some MovNat

Although it looks a bit warmer, this is much like the seminar I attended with the great Erwan Le Core back in December 2010.

By the way if you are wondering how this fits with my Hillfit approach, I think High Intensity Training, resistance training can quickly get you the strength that you need in order to practice MovNat Skills.  Without basic strength you will never get far in terms of climbing etc.  I do not discount all these skills, and I think there is value in becoming expert in them.....but strength.....exercise is something else.

Great video, in terms of building strength to prepare for climbing, it is of course a great idea. But aren't lifting, carrying, throwing, and catching all parts of MovNat already? So we can use those skills to increase our ability to do others. Thoughts?

yes...but there are more efficient and safer ways to get stronger. I am all for the skills, but strength building to get the capacity to do the skills can be done safely with resistance training

Yes, I totally agree but what I'm trying to say is that resistance training is already a part of movnat. Just because it's a barbell and not a rock doesn't mean it isn't movnat.
