Why stand on them in zhan zhuang?

Graham, that practice improves the connection of my foot with the ground. Good for my root.

How? Does it enable you to grip more with toes?

try it-- it becomes evident very quickly if you are not doing it right

;)


you find out quickly if your body is sending the force straight down and through the earth

becomes more evident of you stand the bricks up and stand on the small sides (the bricks are as tall as they can be)

Bricks add difficulty to exercise. When I do zhan zhuang with bricks, my attention and my connection to the ground become stronger and more subtle.
