Summary:
"In Move Your DNA, biomechanist Katy Bowman explains our deep need for movement - right down to the cellular level. She also addresses up-to-the-minute questions, including : Is sitting really the new smoking? Are standing workstations helpful or harmful? What's the safest way to move toward minimal shoes? Are Kegels and core exercises solving problems or creating them? Do we really need cardio exercise? Does DNA predetermine our health as much as we are led to believe? Bowman also lays out a movement and lifestyle program accessible to everyone from the most sedentary to professional athletes."--Back cover.
