Correct Swim Posture
In studying chi running to help my triathlon training, body alignment and posture is lesson 1 and the cornerstone of the technique
Would this long spine posture also be recommended for swimming and should the pelvis be neutral or tilted back?
For the pelvic tilt, this most recently came up here:
Jamie Shaules has an interest in this topic. I emailed him and he said he'd post up a new YouTube vid in due course.
Running Technique 101
"Running technique 101 - a whirlwind tour of optimal running technique"
that sums up what I try to do and has kept me running beginning in my late twenties to now in my mid-sixties "relatively" injury free. I do not Lean forward with the shoulders. Good luck with your training. mjm
•Trying to make radical, wholesale changes to running technique is probably not the optimal way to go, for it simply transfers the point of loading on the skeleton to another area. Specifically, the research study discussed in Part III of the series (a study we were both involved in at UCT) found that 2 weeks of training caused the loading on the knee to be reduced, but the loading on the ankle increased.
•This change in loading is linked to the numerous anecdotal reports of athletes developing Achilles tendon and calf muscle problems after learning Pose, anecdotes which were borne out by the follow up to that study (the part of the study that was never published, incidentally)
•Our recommendation is to look for incremental changes in technique, rather than falling prey to common sense and sound biomechanics packaged as a miracle cure for injuries through marketing strategies
