In the article entitled, “Moving Through Winter,” Mike discussed how to stay motivated to workout in the winter and how to focus on mobility to prevent injury. Mike stated, “The way to reduce injury risk and improve health for our muscles, joints, nervous system, and everything else is to create resiliency in the body. Out bodies are little adaption machines, which is good. But it can be bad if we're doing the same movements again and again.”

Animal flow. El animal que llevas dentro. Miguel Campo (39 años) es técnico dental. Pero, desde hace cuatro años, se convierte, dos veces a la semana, en un lagarto. Avanza, replicando el traqueteo de la espina dorsal, por el suelo de R10Lab Entrenamiento Natural, centro que da formación de animal flow a profesionales. Crab reach (alcance de cangrejo), loaded beast (bestia cargada), ape (mono). Rafa Díez, uno de los nueve maestros instructores de esta disciplina en el mundo, dicta animales y los alumnos sincronizan una coreografía. “La clave es el control corporal para saber hacia dónde, cómo y por qué me muevo”, resume.
