In the same way supplements should not be the bulk of your diet, exercise should not be the bulk of your movement profile.
— Move Your DNA by Katy Bowman (Page 85)
I wish the author used more formal units/measurement to help us define what a “profile” is. She refers a lot to walking mileage, so is this mileage dependent? Because if it is and I run 12 miles a day, does that mean I need to walk 20+ miles that day to ensure exercise isn’t the bulk of my movement? Or is it time-based? Or is it simply variety-based?
I would’ve loved to see a deeper dive into what constitutes a quality movement profile in relation to daily exercise, though it doesn’t seem this book is actually written for athletes like myself (more on this in the book review)
