Carl, how can you stand up, breathe, or reach for a can of peas (or your partner's wrist) without using muscles? Really...I am reminded of Tohei Sensei being asked to use ki to pick something up..he laughed and reached out and picked it up.
I appreciate your ongoing work to make people aware that stretching muscles does not warm them up and can have adverse effects when they are used. Please don't change what I wrote ("conventional muscles") to just "muscles". I asked you an honest question, which you have overlooked.
