Who actually started the whole drawing in thing

I'm giving a very brief talk on the whole ta/drawing in/stuart mcgill thing. One bit of info that I can't seem to track down is who initially took the research of Hodges, Hides and Richardson and misapplied it. Mike Clark? Paul Chek? Some nameless personal trainer?

All the articles I read seem to attribute the problem to "personal trainers" but it's hard to believe that such a pervasive thing didn't start with some authority figure. I know that Mike Boyle wrote about first hearing about it from Mike Clark. Anyway, anyone have the scoop?

Re: Who actually started the whole drawing in thing

I have Paul Chek training stuff from 2005 (Scientific Core Conditioning, first press 1992), that focuses heavily on TVA and drawing in. Who's to say where between 1992-2005 that started though.

My guess is he was heavily responsible for this, given his niche, penetration and who would have taken his lectures to what other sources.
