    Okay then not on the rug, you seem a bit high strung and angry. I guess we will just disagree on this issue.

So this makes sense to me, but I just plan on getting into the woods more.
      that's awesome! and I think your conclusion is a bit off. i'd argue that your time in the gym better prepared you for doing what you did all weekend. I think that true fitness lies somewhere in between spending tons of time in the gym and tons of time doing natural movements. a bit of both seems to be the best balance for overall fitness

        quite the opposite. i'm neither high strung nor angry about anything. you stated that you never paid anyone to teach you lifts, crossfit, etc. things that are completely unnatural. why would you then advocate paying someone to teach you movements that are natural?

        I don't think we really disagree on anything. movnat is a great idea. but overpriced and trademarked are two things that shouldn't have anything to do with natural movement. do you disagree with that?

          I had the same type of experience Stacy15. I had been training hard with weights in the gym, adding in yoga, sprints and lots of long walks etc. but attended a MovNat workout at a park in San Francisco just for fun and was pretty stiff for the next couple of days. Kind of opened my eyes to the fact that it I probably need to expand my routines and build in this type of training a day or two each week.

            I might have not worded that the best... I agree that my time in gym helped me on trip. I would have been dying had I not been in some sort of good shape! And no way I could have helped carry what I did without strength training. I just went in thinking I was in good shape, and it set me back a few notches seeing how difficult it was!
