The view of bodybuilding is one that views the body in segments and only as this is big or that is small in very artificially created positions.
On the other hand the view of "performance" or functional training is one that the body is a machine made to be worked in a variety of angles and positions at once.
Both these views offer some advanatages but they are also very naive in that they do not take into account the real purpose of the body and that is simply to support life first.
The above picture on the left is a view of the appendicular skeleton which attaches to the axial skeleton(the pelvis and the limbs along with arms and the scapula which is the flat bone on the back.
A view on bodybuilding only takes you as far as a very limited type of strength and therefore over training what you feel insecure about and a view of performance will largely ignore impact and wear and tear along the attachment of appendicular and axial skeletons. Force from the ground travels to the upper body and the strengtn of the upper body is very closely related to the stability and strength of the lower body especiall at the connection of the spine to pelvis via tendons and ligaments.
A healthy view is one that is relaxed about physical health and capacities and views the body not as a machine but a mechanism of sustaining life. This will include the willingness to train the stability and strength along the segments of the skeleton.
In our haist to sell you services in the "fitness industry" we throw around all kinds of complicated terms. But memorizing terms is different than understanding concepts! We do all kinds of fancy exercises and describe exercise with understanding its impact on the body in the name of ego and insecurity.
We become specialists in this and that when the entire role of the body and skeleton is to work im symphony with all other parts which are actually just a single unit called the human skeleton.
