The Q Triad

Published on the Bare 5 Blog yesterday, thought it would be of some interest to the fitness pursuers. There’s also seems to be a triad within the BQ realm where pursuing different aspects of body movement (ie strength, power, flexibility, bodyweight) impacts our strengths in other areas of BQ. Similarly, we all have a genetic potential within the greater human potential of body mastery and a daily potential that has some variance. An interesting concept that I wanted to share…

Ever notice how often we come across people who are well above average or even experts in something only to be below average or almost helpless when it comes to other aspects in life? Or the people who devote their time and energy developing one strength, only to see themselves getting weaker in other areas, often ones they used to be good at?

I’ve noticed this over the years and recently started to give it some more thought. How can we explain what we are good at and how does that impact the rest of our lives? The more I thought about it, the deeper it got, until eventually a fascinating model developed in my head: the Q Triad. The Quotient Triad- What are we good at and how does that relate to our other abilities?
