In this phase of alarm response
, and pride
are the qualities
inspired as distress
begins. The organism
pulls out of the pelvis
and off the ground. A statement
"Keep your distance or I will attack!"
It is a challenging behaviour
and calls on the next layer of effort response
. The "bluff body
" is created in order to appear big
ger toward the implied threat
PHYSICAL RESPONSE IN THIS PHASE:
Diaphragm descends, chest raises and inspires, the pulse increses, the abdominal-pelvic musculature increses pressure (this squeezes pressure into the chest and head). The whole system contracts, getting ready to push, dig in, hit, freeze, become still or hold tight.
