Gravity is the force that pulls two objects that have mass together, and the mass of the human body generates gravity. The more the mass there is, the more the amount of the gravitational force will increase. The study of the Earth’s gravitational field itself is complex and deeply fascinating. Likewise, studying its relevance to the human body makes it even more thought provoking. A gravitational field is simply the area of space neighboring a body that has another body experiencing a gravitational attraction force. As human beings and just wide-ranging species, our state on Earth is not the same as it is up in the atmosphere or another planet. Unfortunately, the term “gravity” is thrown around futilely these days, but in this essay you will learn its purpose on our Earth, and all the notions that go along with it. There is a model axis that should be identical to the gravitational force between the human body and Earth that is located through the center mass of the body. Accordingly, the human body is perfectly aligned as far as joints and bones go. Often in yoga practices, the COM (center of mass) is essential as it is the point that distributes every bit of a body’s mass equally. You probably hear the words “chakra” or “sacrum” in yoga and meditation, and that is just another word for the COM. If the center of…show more content…
Obviously, people do not deliberately hold themselves up, and thus tension builds up in their muscles to do that job. So, human beings became programmed over time to bundle up tissues to do so. This also explains why when a person is exercising, it is hard to target one specific muscle because each muscle has restrictions. For example, in order to train your abdominal muscle, you must train your lower back muscles and vice versa. Additionally, when training inferior muscles like your upper back, a signal is sent to your brain to actually use your triceps due to the restrictions of your upper back
