6 Fundamental Primal Human Movements

Hinging — a movement horribly underpracticed — is a tremendously useful pattern.

Perhaps the most marvelous fat-chopping device ever seen is the kettlebell swing. Hinging forges an iron posterior and is, or at least should be, the default movement pattern for picking stuff up off the ground.

As an athlete, you can produce a tremendous amount of force from a hinge — think of a lineman before the snap, a sprinter before the gun, or a broad jumper before the leap; these actions are all strong and all come out of a hinged position.

The figure shows the dead lift, which is perhaps the most common hinging pattern of all. The dead lift strengthens the hips and the back. When performing the dead lift, be sure to keep the back flat and the hips below the shoulders but above the knees.
