    it changes his point that hard manual labour is,desirable, if he is spending his dollars on things that remove hard labour from his life, he clearly feel a,washing machine is more desirable than the additional rxcersise. He seem to want it fore others and not himself or his wife

    You are making improper cause/effect relationships. It is like saying that eating ice cream causes it to be hot outside.

    In your earlier post, you even said that poor body mechanics lead to injury. Exactly! We aren't talking about the benefit of doing things wrong and harming the body. The human machine is unique, in that, it can be made to do things it wasn't designed to do. This is why many long time TKD people require hip surgery/replacements, or why gymnasts have such short careers.

    Working the way the body is designed doesn't cause injury. Hard labor doesn't lead to injury, in and of itself, labor of ANY kind done incorrectly leads to injury.

    and hard labour leads to greater injuries sooner. It's impossible to work physically hard for 10 hours,a,day every day and not damage your body, just as its impossible to move all heavy objects using correct techniques

    the human machine isnt unique, all machines can be made to do things they aren't designed for and generaly that breaks them or at least wears them out prematurely

    To further add to this thread, the most important aspects to consider are whether its old or new is:-

    1. Stretches - Flexibility conditioning.
    2. Exercises - Mobility conditioning
    3. Light Weights - Strength conditioning
    4. Relation and Recovery - Natural healing conditioning

    In that order as well.

    Some of the old methods are traditional beliefs because they have an underpinning reason for example strengthening the nerves or ligaments and increase certain chemicals in the human body. There are studies and information you can find some know this as Qigong, Chi or Kai these assist in the process of healing the body in intense martial art practices and lower heart rate and lactic acids etc

    Its a good topic and area of study.

    I did post here -http://www.martialtalk.com/threads/looking-for-advice.124887/#post-1860020 .......... as added thoughts by others in community as well.
