In this class, Khalil Hussein works on building some of the principles he has been talking about in previous Dentistry Gym classes.

When it comes to exercise there is no right or wrong type and no right or wrong time. Our figures were meant to move and to stretch. In fact, our brain’s main purpose, if you can believe it, is to produce adaptable and complex shift. Movement is the only way we can affect the outside world, other than sweating.

The humble ocean squirt has a brain until it one day learns a neat boulder and attaches itself to it. After this happens it accepts its own brain as it is no longer necessary. There are countless other examples in nature. For better information check out Daniel Wolpert’s Ted talk on the real reason for brains.

But the main point is that when we speak, we are moving forward our vocal cords and pressure air out to produce tones. When we write and when we investigate the world around us, we are using muscles to accomplish these tasks.


All in all, gesture is extremely important in “peoples lives”. I believe we are slowly sleepwalking into another pandemic. The pandemic of sedentarism.

Dentistry is not very different from the typical desk profession that many others face. You are stuck in a relatively similar arrangement for several hours, multiple times per week, completing the same tasks over and over again. There is very little variation throughout your day.

And if you think exercising once or twice a week is enough, then sorry to be the bearer of bad news. It’s not.

Movement is required throughout the day as well as in robust bouts.

The standard to aim for is 150+ minutes per week. But I would go further in saying that you need this and more moderate-to-light activity throughout your daylight to genuinely have a healthy and well-moving body. The best locate to start is with the Dentistry Gym!

There are quite a few years now. In each of them, I try to go through principles that you can take home and apply to your own lives.

These world-class are basically equipment-free and require nothing but a little time and effort. Putting in the work today will help you tomorrow. Putting in the work tomorrow will help you for the rest of your life.

It’s never too late to start looking after yourself. So, why not start today?
