Subject: RE: Pose = crazy???
I don't understand why you assert that my "conclusion is incorrect" when I have not offered a conclusion. All I have done is asked a question or two. Allow me to try this again in light of the information you have offered. You (i.e., Pose) seem to be saying:
1) There is a push-off, and it is comprised of muscular energy and a return or recoil from stored energy in the muscles/tendons. The muscular energy refered to is not the same as the stored energy. These two sources acting together are what create forward motion.
2) The afore-mentioned storage of energy is not perfect (you have not stated it explicitly, but your refernce to "spring" leads me to assume that the storage is due to the landing shock, i.e, the energy of the shock of the landing is stored in the muscles/tendons).
3) In order to return the leg back to its starting position in the stride, the inefficiency indicated in item #2 above requires the application of additional energy (i.e., "muscular energy").
4) The additional "muscular energy" noted in item #3 above is an "involuntary action".
Have I interpreted correctly so far? If not, please indicate which items are not proper (you don't have to go into detail, you can just say something like "Item 3 is not correct"), and I will ask further to rectify. I know this may seem a rather laborious process, but please bear with me. I'm sure it will grow fruit eventually.
