What this means is that you are aware of your whole body and you are distributing the load among your muscles and bones in the most efficient way.
This makes everything much easier and safer (many fewer injuries because no one part is being overworked.).
I have found this approach to be far superior to anything else I have tried.
One can do all the things typically done in the gym -- resistance work, stretching, aerobics, much more effectively and enjoyably with this approach.
I did the best push up of my life the other day -- I felt like I was flying up.
