Exercises and movements no longer had labels associated with them regarding whether they were “bad” or “good?”
Instead of telling people, “lifting heavy things without proper form is bad for you,” we said, “lifting things when you are tired and not paying attention might not be the best idea?”
The recommendations for exercise were no longer, “30 minutes of moderate physical activity most days of the week,” and were instead, “move a little bit more than you did yesterday?”
We stopped telling people their current lifestyle is killing them and instead encouraged everyone to get up and down off of the floor more?
We threw out numbers (the ones on the scale, the amount of time/weight/HR percentage needed for optimal exercise intensity), and instead asked people to pay attention to how their body feels?
