Imagine the difference between the average exerciser (moving about three hundred minutes a week) and the hunter-gatherer, who used his or her body eight hours a day (approximately three thousand minutes a week), and still took more time to rest than you do. The frequency the hunter-gatherer moved is tenfold to our movement frequency. The difference between three hundred and three thousand minutes of weekly loading is tremendous for all of our tissues.
