Weak Hand Optimization   //

Of the many shortcomings of our relatively short evolution, ambidexterity is one of them, unless you’re one of the 1 percent that can use both hands equally well.

The fact that we have hands, limbs or even entire sides of our bodies that are dominant and therefore the opposing, weaker, is a waste of our physical potential and anatomical mechanics.

I’m a righty and you’re most likely as well, meaning most of our physical actions and movements are led and articulated by the right side of our bodies but most notably our right hands and arms.

This means the other half of our bodies are greatly underutilized when it could be optimized to perform more efficiently and as a result increasing effectiveness to our entire bodies – not just limbs.
