Occupational Obesity - Sumo Wrestlers

 

Taking a brief look at Sumo wrestlers, it can be noticed that apart from excessive weight, their musculoskeletal system has an unusual shape.  

 

Sumo Wrestler - In a standing position (Upright position)

 

They have an excessive inward curvature of the neck (cervical) spine.

 

They have an excessive outward curvature of the middle and upper back (thoracic) spine.

 

They also have an excessive inward curvature of the low back (lumbar) spine.

 

Their pelvis is excessively rolled forward.

 

 

 

Sumo Wrestler - During wrestling practice and competition - (Semi-upright position)

 

They have an excessive inward curvature of the neck (cervical) spine.

 

They have an excessive curvature of the middle and upper back (thoracic) spine.

 

Also, they have a flattened low back (lumbar) spine.

 

Their pelvis is in a semi-horizontal position.

 

 

It can be notice that the heavier they are, the musculoskeletal changes become more visible. The most visible musculoskeletal changes are the excessive curvature of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine.

 

When the curvature of their cervical spine is more excessive, their neck is shorter. Particularly with sumo wrestlers that have excessive fat mass that is above average, their neck is so short that is almost not visible.

 

Almost everyone believes that the sumo diet is responsible for their body weight, but if it is the diet than sumo wrestlers should continue to gain weight. Their weight stabilises at some point without reducing food intake.

 

The reason for overweight and obesity among sumo wrestlers is in their occupational physical activity. Their occupational physical activity induces adverse musculoskeletal changes.

 

Restriction of food intake or any other diet for weight loss will not do any good for weight loss, as it doesn’t work  by the rest of the population that have weight problems.

 

The only way to regain a natural weight of the body is to regain a natural shape of the musculoskeletal system.

 

The eating habit of sumo wrestlers isn’t an obstacle for achieving normal weight. The adverse musculoskeletal changes are the obstacle.

 

According to the Japan Sumo Association, “In 1953, the average weight of a sumo wrestler was 317 pounds, while the average height was 5-foot 11. Today, the average wrestler is just 3.2 inches taller, but 95 pounds heavier.”

 

The recent increase in the average weight of sumo wrestlers cannot be attributed to their occupation but to a man-made environment which promotes adverse musculoskeletal changes.

 

Modern upholstered sitting furniture like the armchair, sofa and couch promotes adverse musculoskeletal changes that are very similar to adverse musculoskeletal changes induced by sumo wrestling.

 

Physical occupation activity is the main reason for obesity in sumo wrestlers.

 

The manmade environment - modern upholstered sitting furniture - is a contributing factor.

 

There is no diet or drug that will reverse the unnatural curvature of the cervical spine, the thoracic spine or other adverse musculoskeletal changes.

 

The only way to reverse adverse musculoskeletal changes in sumo wrestlers and the rest of the population affected with excessive weight is to be involved in postural and motor skill exercises, and/or in physical activities that positively affect motor skill, posture and gait.

Third Edition -
In this book, there is a ground breaking discovery of the biological basis of body fat formation and the mechanism underlying body fat distribution. Discoveries revealed in this book will enable us to efficiently and effectively solve the problem of obesity.
Real science of weight gain and weight loss
Also, this book will explain why humans are the only ones who are able to gain over 500% or more body weight above their normal body weight, and why all other species do not.
In the second part of this book, POSTURAL AND MOTOR SKILL EXERCISES are described for the first time ever, which will enable everyone in a short time to cure obesity and improve health and overall wellbeing.
