  • Why did we spend hours & hours assessing the Centenarians and the Indigenous?

    Centenarian sprinters and indigenous tribesman runners are good groups to observe for how their bodies move naturally because both groups tend to have long physical activity histories. Those in such groups dodged enough environments or stimuli throughout their lives that would have deteriorated their bodies. And due to their withholding of natural movement, they developed muscular, healthy bodies.

    G8way Max was so fascinated with Centenarian sprinters because their joints & connective tissue didn’t break down like others who couldn’t sprint in their 30’s. Centenarian sprinters are 100 years or older individuals who can still run. These individuals have developed a high level of physical fitness throughout their lifetime, which definitely helped keep their bodies healthy and resilient.

    Indigenous tribesman runners belong to indigenous cultures and have a long history of running as a means of transportation and hunting. These individuals have developed muscular, agile bodies due to regular running and other physical activities. These hunter and gatherers don’t have luxurious, sedentary lifestyles that deteriorate their natural movement. They don’t have time to stretch if a lion is running after them. And they don’t even have a term to describe back pain because no one has it.

    Observing how these individuals move has provided insight into how the body is naturally designed to move and function. This information is helpful for athletes and others looking to improve their physical performance and overall health. However, it is essential to note that individual differences and genetics also affect physical performance and health. One’s mental perseverance and discipline also affect one’s outcomes athletically. And a prescription or a deep dive assessment can help guide those to higher performance with fewer setbacks.
