Abstract

Jaded for the excess of wealth (information, food…, and even money), accustomed to poverty and not adapted to affluence, we delay in adapting to abundance and understanding the difference between a wealthy live (a rich live) and “a live that is rich”. Abundance led people to trivialize things. So, for instance, the human movement, something that we constantly contact with, is banalized. We will show succinctly how the human movement is not "just" about activating one or several muscles. A movement requires a global action by the human body that must maintain the necessary balances, regarding objectives and intentionalities. We present a simple model, in a somewhat rudimentary way, highlighting the importance of muscles, joints and the center of mass / support base relation, to better understand and explain the functionality of the human movement. A complex process that is possible to control, learn, and train, presenting simple examples in sport activities operationalizing the presented model and emphasizing the importance of understanding and explaining this whole process in order to understand its effects on sport, health or education.
