Stryka Snabbhet Manual- Ralph Mann Connections


Jan Melen’s manual is available on Amazon and it was interesting to see the photographs and illustration comparison between that resource and Ralph Mann’s book. Foot strike is gaining a lot of discussion because of the many coaches understand the importance of a clean foot contact. Yet, emphasis on the Windlass Mechanism with sprinting is overrated, as the data confirms the contributions are almost nil. While the foot mechanics are important the free leg during the swing phase needs to have a great hip snap and range of motion in the rectus or the foot strike will compromise swing mechanics. Jeremy Frisch has done a nice job of posting eccentric stretches on his website and I suggest checking them out. Some thought provoking ideas.
