“Your body is never ‘out of shape’; it is always in a shape created by how you have moved up to this very moment. It is constantly responding and shifting to a continuous stream of input provided by your external and internal environments, even if that input consists only of sitting still, for hours on end.”
“Anthropologists use data on bone robusticity to create a picture of how our ancestors used their bodies. Since our bodies adapt to our behaviors, the nuances of bone are great indicators of what people have done over a lifetime.
Bony nuances in Natufian hunter-gatherer males tend to show heavy right-handedness, and adaptations to muscular attachment sites used in overhand throwing. Other populations show one-sided bony adaptations believed to be created by the pushing (spear) or pulling (bow) of a weapon, the strenuous work of hide-scraping (women) and food preparation (women).
Computed tomography (CT scans) of professional baseball pitchers show that bones in their throwing arm form to the forces created by pitching the ball. A pitch requires exaggerated wind-up that places a particular torquing load to bone that, over time, remodels the bone in the same way pressing a hunk of clay can change its shape.”
