Think of your body as an archer’s bow, or a spring. Avoid pulling your body together.
As shown in the diagram, even as the bow is compressed, it continues to seek expansion. The ends of the bow never seek each other. Whether standing tall or bending, thinking of your body as an archer’s bow can make you stronger, and it can also make movement easier because it allows for more internal space. You can see a video of this concept at Tip 68.
