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"...
History never remembers the name of experts; just the innovators who had the guts to challenge and prove the "experts" wrong
1)Why does the sports training environment preach core stability, when athletics demands optimum maneuverability?
2)How does core stability training slow down an athlete and promote injury??
1)Why are track events held counterclockwise in running?
3)Why do treadmills become expensive clothes hangers in six months after purchase?
4)Why does strength training actually slow an athlete down?
5)As every shoe company knows, the more money you spend on a pair of shoes, why is it true the slower you run and the more likely you are to injure yourself?
5)How do orthotic inserts promote injury?
7)If injuries to athletes are “known,” then what mathematical formula defines the perfect runner?
If a 100 meter sprint is 100 meters, then how far does an elite athlete travel? How far do amateur athletes travel? Can you explain why every runner will physically travel further than the linear distance of a race? What measurements prove that fact?
9)As humans are naturally stronger on one side of their body than the other, then at peak running speed, if the strongest leg determines our quickest pace, how does the weaker leg keep up?
10)If a human swings their arms as we walk and run, commonly referred to as a counterbalance arm swing, then what’s so out of balance biomechanically that we need arm swing to counter it with? Wouldn’t the perfectly balanced runner not need to swing their arms at all?
They say golf is like life, but don't believe them. Golf is more complicated than that. "If I am still standing at the end of the race, hit me with a Board and knock me down, because that means I didn't run hard enough" If a lot of people gripped a knife and fork the way they do a golf club, they'd starve to death. "Don't fear moving slowly forward...fear standing still."
Needs more cowbell!

What prize do we get if we answer them all correctly?
Shit, I gotta get to work. I want this:

Can you imagine the gravy a person could make with the drippings from that?!
OK, my reaction time is just too slow for this forum. Cannot keep up...
