Re: An exercise that illustrates internal power

Hi Michael,

I guess I never completed my thought with that post. Lee was asking why we would want to use JUST ONE muscle group/mechanism (in this case, the center/abdomen) for movement, instead of utilizing all of our muscles. My response was that in reality, we ALWAYS only use one or two (or a very small number of) muscles for force generation. So the idea isn't actually all that weird.
