Up With Gravity<font size="1"><sup>SM</sup></font> Lesson 2 – Using your Center of Gravity while Moving — 9 Comments

  1. Hi Robert,

    I’ve been playing with these ideas today when walking around the house.

    My habit is to walk fast, pushing myself forward. Using my centre of gravity while moving helped me to find my natural, more comfortable pace.

    Thanks for sharing your work, very useful.

    All the best

  2. Hello Robert,

    I would like to ask you if when we walked back, the position of arrow tip changes to the back. There’s a change in the reverse walking?

    • Hi Ramon, Great question! Yes, if you’re walking backward, the arrow tip should point backward. You can do the same sorts of experiments with backward walking as with ordinary walking.


  3. Robert,

    Perhaps I missed it, but where (at least in my mind) should my center of gravity be located relative to my feet? Over my toes? Over my heels? Anywhere that I will not tip over?

    • If you locate your CG (lesson 1) and locate your feet, then you’ll know. If you happen to be standing, of course, it’s petty much over your feet – but the precise relationship depends a lot on HOW you’re standing. For some people, it could be behind, or in front, of their feet – pretty solid evidence of very poor posture.

  4. This information immediately caused a change in the feeling of being in my body. I’m newly introduced to these ideas and have been searching for more. Thanks for the time and care you took in putting this into words.
