two questions track workouts on treadmill and best intervals to prepare for tough mudder (Read 1130 times)

    I should probably just go full sportjester since my arms don't swing much anyway. 

     

      Hey, I made it!

        (FWIW, they counter a rotational force about the anteroposterior axis, said force inherent in the off-axis propulsive forces applied by the legs.  But I'm neither an expert nor an "expert".)

         You're only partially correct.

         

        yes it is counter to the off axis propulsion determined by one's running gauge measure. However you also forgot to include the differences in leg strength and unequal physical motion.

         

        Your answer was only one of the five variables to properly answer the question.

        Experts said the world is flat

        Experts said that man would never fly

        Experts said we'd never go to the moon

         

        Name me one of those "experts"...

        just a simple cat

          By swinging my arms efficiently I can run 8 mph on a treadmill....and never have to hold on to the sides for balance!  Whee!  I am self balancing!   Big grin

              By swinging my arms efficiently, I am better able to throw elbows at all the a-holes trying to box me in.

                       And by learning how to run with no arm swing

                      By swinging my arms efficiently, I am better able to throw elbows at all the a-holes trying to box me in.

                       Gives you greater control of your arms when you do need to use them.

                       

                      And as a military personnel, you should be aware of the injury risk to carrying a weapon. Its one of the primary reasons of military interest for why I teach no arm swing.

                        I call it the masking tape exercise, and its described in this link: .

                         

                         

                        Now I know you are a troll.  Ostriches don't know how to use masking tape.  C'mon man!

                          Well, they generally haven't let me race with a weapon, so I am usually not all that concerned about it at that point.  Hence the elbows.  Keeps people at bay.  I don't really care about hitting them as much as I do about establishing my space.

                           

                          And when I do have a weapon, I spend far more time moving real slow than running.  Just the nature of the job.

                            on the times i have run a 5k carrying a weapon, folks have pretty much respected my space. no elbows necessary. FACT.

                            Feeling the growl again

                              I typically don't need to run when carrying a rifle because I put down what I shoot and there is little need to chase it.  On the occasions I do need to run, it's a lot slower than running without.

                               

                              Running in combat bears little resemblence to road/track/trail racing, unless you are French.

                                 And when you do move real slow, its also a survival skill to keep the visual input as stable as possible.

                                 

                                You walk with measurable vertical lift and lateral sway regardless to how slow you move. That movement distorts depth perception, speed perception, reaction times, as well as having measurable impact forces for detection.

                                 

                                Its known as cranial stability. Applies to both athletes and soldiers.
