"Coe's form was perfect for him due to the kinetic chain imbalances that he accumulated as a result of his training. If the dysfunctions were corrected, there is no reason to not suspect he would have run faster, or at least had less chance of injury"
I've re-read some of the older posts and I have another question here, regarding Anthony Colotti's statement on Coe's form.
Mr Colotti: +What sort of "kinetic chain imbalances" did Coe accumulate as a result of his training? And what aspects of his training do you see as being the culprits?
I notice that Coe ran with his left shoulder higher than his right, and his arm swing was smoother & wider on the right & his left arm had a more choppy & tighter action. I saw this as the result of making too many left turns on the track over the years, such that he was always compensating.
But it also seems like he had a glaring leg length discrepancy, esp when I watched a clip on "Born to Run" with him doing double-legged leg presses; both legs did not push forward and recover at the same time & pace. Is this true?
