Introducing dynamic, whole-body movements through work in your garden is a concept that Katy Bowman, biomechanist and author of the book Movement Matters, calls "movement permaculture." Bowman calls typical gym movements, which focus on select muscle groupings and are typically detached from the natural world, "junk food movements." In the long term, these junk food movements aren't good for our bodies.
