That is the proprioception that I mention often.

For those that can isolate without restraint, we need precise EMG to decide; in the absence of that, I observe. Technique must be excellent. (We have not got excellent technique on ALL exercises yet; we will get excellent technique on all exercises.)
I wonder if what you're doing isn't so different from the MedX. The MedX isolates the paraspinals and works them. However you've found a way to isolate several different muscle groups and work them.
Discussions with AMom have helped me refine some exercises very well. Doesn't matter that we do things differently, the constructive discussions help. The week working with 3sisters and her daughter, and Tamzin, helped me a great deal on technique.

Avoid 'faith' in 'experts'. “In consequence of this error many persons pass for normal, and indeed for highly valuable members of society, who are incurably mad...”
