    Your waist is not a joint.

    Bending is a whole body process that generally involves three sets of joints: the ankles, knees and hips.  The waist isn’t one of them.  The hip joints are much lower than most people think, about four five inches below the waist.   There is a video of this at Tip 58.

      Your productions are so uniformly excellent. And your target domain so central to sentient life (not just physical conditioning). Thank you! /Arthur
