Subject: RE: Sub 1:50 800m Training
i ask you why fall into the lazy mode, forever reinforcing your current way ... change my friend change ...you can if you have the will.
The hips are meant to move and not be locked into the one position. As you leave the ground with one leg the other is stepping forward for the next stride. The hips are meant to move! One side working off the other. One coxal bone counterbalancing the other one. The anterior tilt ideally temporary and occurs when the leg is travelling behind the CofG.Yet at the same time the opposite leg is moving forward of the CofG and it's coxal bone is moving into posterior tilt. Ideally that is.
It is an unfortunate situation where the hips have lost their own muscular control and it may be a journey to regain this. Step one is to gain stability. Step to to gain mobility.
Core training is a useful scientific advance. Yet it is also often leading only to the gaining of stability. Look beyond this semi-developed concept chock full of half-baked ideas. Use it to gain an increased awareness of this part of your body and then to increase the stability of this area. Then move on - further on to the realm of hip mobility. Running regularly as you all seem to do is the key to this mobility, continue it whilst you gain stability - two sides of the same coin, working together forevermore. Move your hips and not just your legs - look at the wonderful Borzakovsky for obvious hip mobility - to Ovett and Vasala and Elliot for hip mobility.
Mr Elliot probably the best although i also argue with myself over this - but for the greatest MD coach understanding of running mechanics you can't go past PErcy Cerutty.
see this for something to study, look at it over and over, first thing in the morning and last thing at night - get the imprint etched into your mind. It is my favourite. I wish he could have raced Vasala and Ovett - what a race that would have been.
