Life and Sport Demands Force Production and Force Absorption

“True strength is not hardening, it is resilience, adaptability, stability. It is characterized by elasticity, which allows quick recuperation from fatigue.” (103, Ida Rolf)

Life and sport demands force production and force absorption. Focus in on my feet. Notice that one foot produces force while the other foot accepts it (or both when landing on two feet).

The stillness of the ground is fixed. So, it’s the job of the pelvis to appropriately adjust to the movement of the thigh at the hip joint (acetabulum).

Walking, running and sprinting all require pushing off one leg and stabilizing with the planting leg.

@bodybyboyle we train single leg movements with the intent of building tissue/joint resiliency.

We challenge our hips, knees and ankles in different planes of motion. Our intention is to engrain and teach our bodies more efficient neurological patterns.

The result: Joint integrity, better landing mechanics, injury prevention.

“Our tendons get strong when we properly introduce speed/velocity with training and plyometrics” @michael_boyle1959 

Of course injuries will always happen. But, we are in the business of learning controlled movement with the intent of reducing those injuries.
