As a way to improve physical function, you can train infrequent movement patterns. For giggles, the next time you go to rinse off a dish at the sink, try holding the dish in the opposite hand. If you're like most, it will feel weird and you won't be as good at it. The same holds true for larger movement patterns. Try walking or lunging backwards. Better yet, practice your backwards bear crawl and challenge me the next time we bump into each other.
