Summary, etc.:
"Accessible and fascinating, Move Your DNA is a game-changer in the world of health, fitness, and movement science. Hailed as offering a pioneering and paradigm-shifting perspective on exercise, this book: explains how movement works right down to the cellular level; examines the differences between the movements in a typical hunter-gatherer's life and the movements in a convenience-riddled lifestyle; discusses the issues with using exercise like movement vitamins instead of addressing the deeper issue of a poor movement diet; contains a three-level movement program to help those of all strengths and fitness levels transition to a movement-rich lifestyle. Move Your DNA contains corrective exercises, habit modifications, and simple lifestyle changes to free ourselves from the diseases of affluence and discover our naturally healthy, reflex-driven selves. From couch potatoes to professional athletes, new parents to seniors, readers love Katy's humorous, passionate, and above all science-based guide to restoring your body through natural movement." -- Page [4] cover.
