A groundbreaking book that makes the case that exercise is not enough.
Move Your DNA
A pioneering and necessary book and an instant classic.
I would recommend this book to everyone. Whether you’ve been doing the fitness thing for years or are an absolute beginner, you will find seeds of wisdom to help you move more and better. Move Your DNA is a paradigm shifter that acknowledges the complexity of modern movement habits while also providing helpful ways to improve and grow.
This is a powerful, thought-provoking “must” for any collection strong in not just health routines, but in health science.
Bowman covers some complicated topics, including physics, biology, kinesiology, and mathematics, but her tone is light, conversational, and often humorous, making learning from her effortless. Skillful use of analogy and metaphor makes complex topics accessible. For example, Bowman explains that loads are akin to the bending and rustling of a tree on a windy day and that inactivity can lead to disease in a way similar to that of a confined orca that develops a floppy fin. Move Your DNA is enjoyable, convincing, and sure to change the way fitness buffs (and coach potatoes) move.
