What is Fitness Minimalism?

Fitness minimalism is about first learning how to move your body in all planes of motion and discovering an awareness of how your body moves in space before adding external loads. Once you begin to understand how to express movement purity, you can begin to add loads for resistance such as kettlebells, clubbells, and free weights. But only if the implements add something to the movement and are not just for the novelty. Loading with weights

is not the only variable to change and there are other variables to play with first, such as tempo.

You’ll see in the videos that exercises can be made more complex by slowing the tempo and increasing the awareness of every move. Also, increasing the challenge with balance, or changing grip or foot positions can increase the overall challenge of the exercise. A case can easily be made for not ever having to use external loading at all depending on your specific goals.
