Introduction to Crulsing


Start by calibrating your core if your goal is to become fit and stay fit. No exercise is needed. ~ Gary William Birmingham, USAF Disabled Veteran


1. Core of Movement

 

Crulse is the calibration of the body's natural fitness system used to develop and maintain the body's homeostasis.


Homeostasis
is the core of one's ability to move, and the natural fitness system is the foundation of how proficient one can move.



Homeostasis:

Homeostasis is the body's way to maintain balance and stability to function. It uses various systems to do this.

Natural Fitness System:

The body's system for the development of physical fitness.

 



Abuse and neglect of the body's natural fitness system is the root cause of many ills of the human body and mind.


2. Crulse Fit

 

Crulse Fit is a calibration procedure for mapping, coordinating, and calibrating:

  1. Body awareness
  2. Physical coordination
  3. Spatial awareness

Core Benefits

  1. Improved Body Awareness: 

    The heightening and alignment of kinesthesia and other senses improve body awareness.

  2. Improved Physical Coordination: 

    The heightening and alignment of the senses and body parts improve physical coordination.

  3. Improved Spatial Awareness: 

    The heightening and alignment of proprioception, vestibular, and other senses improve spatial awareness.

  4. Improved Homeostasis: 

    The improvement and maintenance of the body's system for developing natural physical fitness.


Crulse is a portmanteau name. It refers to the natural fitness system's ability to CReate impULSEs.



Seven Senses

 

Our body uses senses to perceive and function. There are many steps available to develop our perception and ability to function, and Crulsing takes advantage of them.

  1. Sight (Vision)
  2. Hearing (Auditory)
  3. Smell (Olfactory)
  4. Taste (Gustatory)
  5. Touch (Tactile)
  6. Vestibular (Balance)
  7. Proprioception (Position)
  8. Kinesthesia (Movement)


There are more than eight senses in the human body.



3. Calibration Procedure

 

This Crulse Fit calibration procedure focuses on three areas:

1. Mapping

Mapping kinesthesia and other senses:

Identifying sensory nerves throughout the body to create an accurate and precise mapping. 
Improved body awareness.

 

Example

An example is when the support muscles for the prime mover muscles for walking are no longer felt or active, and the support muscles become limited.

Relying only on prime mover muscles to walk can cause stress and instability, creating injury risk. 

2. Coordinating

Coordinating the senses and body parts to create specific movements. Improved physical coordination.

Examples

Poor physical coordination is the inability to perform basic tasks like tying a shoe, turning a doorknob, and kneeling to the ground. Each of these can make life difficult and hazardous.

3. Calibrating

Calibrating proprioception, vestibular and other senses ensures the mental image matches the body's actual positioning for improved spatial awareness.

Examples

An example is walking past an object, moving the foot to avoid it, and kicking the thing with the little toe or trying to catch a ball and completely missing it.

4. Performing Procedure

 

Crulsing is the technique used to perform this calibration procedure. Crulsing works by using stimulus, feedback, and reward system to tune the body.

Crulsing

Crulsing is the act of using massage, stretching, resistance, etc., for:

  • Exploring and seeking out the body's needs.
  • Discovering and listening to the body's needs.
  • Experiencing rewards and benefits from giving the body what it needs.

Example

An example of the natural fitness system is the body sends a need to yawn and stretch in the morning. The response is a nice yawn and stretch, and then the body sends a joyful feel-good thank you. 

That feedback and rewards help maintain homeostasis. Even if you do not know why you yawn or need to stretch.

Joyful Movement

Crulsing is the act of performing joyful movements.

Joyful movement is not a technical term or description—an uncomplicated way of understanding stimulus, feedback, and reward system for physical fitness.


Listening to the body to meet its needs is a wonderful thing. It results in greater rewards and benefits.



Ignoring needs over time can lead to harmful side effects and conditions.


5. Movement is Critical

 

The more you move joyfully with purpose, the more you can move. And the more you can move, the more you will want to move—and will.

 

Move with Purpose

Move joyfully with purpose. Crulse Fit is the answer to developing that purpose, and it uses minimal effort for the most significant rewards and benefits.

Conservation of Energy

The conservation system requires sleep, rest, and maintaining minimal energy expenditures, and this limits movement.

Physical Fitness

Complementing conservation is the fitness system, and it requires movement to maintain physical fitness.

Part of the fitness system's need is to move to give the body what it needs.

Active Participation

Both systems above give feedback to help achieve homeostasis. Feedback is not enough, and their feedback requires the active participation of responding to the needs.

The wonderful thing satisfying those needs are rewards and benefits.

Moving with purpose means giving the body what it needs and enjoying the rewards and benefits.


Use your body's natural fitness system—feedback and rewards—to guide your movement. The results of moving joyfully with purpose are nothing short of amazing. ~ Gary William Birmingham, USAF Disabled Veteran


This calibration procedure meets everyone's needs, even if suffering from illness or injury. Of course, there are some severe exceptions.



Important Considerations

Here are some of the significant issues addressed when developing crulsing:  

  1. Fascia is the largest organ in the human body. Inactivity can lead to thickening of the tissue, which limits movement. It becomes stiff and unable to provide a smooth sliding function between tissues, leading to pain, even debilitating pain.

  2. Skeletal muscle inactivity weakens the muscles and destroys muscle fibers. Once deteriorated, these fibers are unrecoverable. All this can limit your ability to move and make you more susceptible to injury.

  3. It is a proven fact that there is an essential link between mental health and fitness. 



Move all of you, not just some of you. ~ Gary William Birmingham, USAF Disabled Veteran



Joyful Movements Key Benefits

 

It will help improve and develop:

  1. Your ability to move and perform your daily tasks.
  2. Your range of mobility.
  3. Your health.
  4. Your ability to exercise, perform sports, and do other stressful physical activities.
  5. Your ability to do the things you want to do.
  6. Your mental well-being.
  7. Your mental ability and clarity.
  8. Your positive and healthy outlook on life.

It will help reduce:

  1. Being prone to accidents; clumsy.
  2. Risk of injuries.
  3. Stress and anxiety levels.
