Running. The most natural motion of humankind.
Everybody knows how important technique is in swimming or nordic skiing. However, few realize that biomechanics in running are even more important. Why? Running is jumping. Jumping is extremely hard on your body.The impact of landing is multiple times the runner's bodyweight and therefore tremendous. The faster you run,the greater the impact also for featherweight runners. ou hear about injuries all the time among pro runners and hobbyjoggers.
Less than 3% of runners run efficiently. They not only put unnecessary strain on their body but they run much slower than their fitness levels would allow them. The more inefficient you run, the heavier your running feels and the slower you become.Your body is put through unnatural workload. Slow times and injuries give proof to suboptimal biomechanics.
There is no reason to run unnatral and inefficient. There is nothing easier than running efficient.We all knew how to do it when we just started running as small children. We knew how to flythen,we still know it now.It only takes reactivation of old motion patterns in your brain. Thisis what FLUGPHASE does. FLUGPHASE does not teach new things but helps you leverage your potential. FLUGPHASE brings you back to the way of flying effortlessly you used to be able to do as a child.
Everybody knows how to run. Especially track & field athletes and triathletes know it. Short ground contact. Long flight phase. integration of plyometrics to improve your runingform just like your licensed coaches and national coaches taught all those years? All of that is what running technique is about. Right?
That is what Larissa Kleinmann thought, too. She was proven wrong many years after she ended her running career,leaving her shaking her head at what opportunities and potential,and speed was left on the track unused back in her days on the German national T&F team. The Laws of Physics were used to put unnecessary limits on her own performsnces but also the performances of her middle and long distance running peers. Biomechanics were neglected. All that counted was:running,running,running-in whichever method or speed or volume. Technique was a word never crossing anyone's mouth or focus- a HUGE mistake.
We were born without shoes. But we wear them daily. They are supposed to protect us. They are supposed to cushion us. They are supposed to stabilize us. But why??
