The amazing body…

As I was doing a bit of reading last night, I was stuck with yet another fact about the body that made me realize exactly how amazing and adaptable the body can be.  It was the story of a girl born without a tibia in one leg, which is the main weight-bearing bone of the lower leg.  Over time, however, her fibula began to take on morphologies until it was indistinguishable from the tibia of the other leg.  Think about that.  The body is so good at adapting to stress, it can even completely change the structure if it is necessary for function.  As a further extension, if one can completely transform a bone over time simply due to appropriate stress, think about what years with an intelligent, consistent training stress will do.  Further, think about sitting all day with poor posture for days at a time without attempting to correct it for years at a time.  What’ll happen?  Probably a morphology toward keeping you locked in a poor position and subsequent injuries.  Do something today to let the adaptive ability work for you and your goals, not against you.

Train hard, train smart,
