Functional Training Concepts - Should you force your feet straight?

There has been quite a bit of talk in relation foot position in a functionally sound stance. I have found some major problems with people acknowledging this problem and just telling folks to "just point your feet straight forward".

I'm sorry to say it, but addressing such a deeply embedded dysfunction on a human body is not so easy. This is especially concerning when people still don't understand the implications of dysfunction and how the majority of it starts from the integration of the Diaphragm and Transverse Abdominis.

In this video I break down 1 of several reasons why queuing this foot position only creates more compensation, and sets the foundation for problems in the future. If you want to employ truly "functional training", you have to address dysfunction, no shift it to another place.

Train intentionally,
not habitually,
