    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 alm

    I was intrigued with your comments. Will you please explain what is meant in your comments that 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”. It has me confused. Thanks

    Yet, emphasis on the Windlass Mechanism with sprinting is overrated, as the data confirms the contributions are almost nil.

    Then start finding ways to develop & strengthen the plantar fascia (spring) & hit it up with the Windlass Mechanism. Then we can go forward. Without correct windlass function, the arch of the foot collapses and fails to act as an efficient lever, thus limiting the push-off power.

    You only get out what you put in.

    Your not putting anything in (plantar fascia).

    At high speeds the general arch and hips are loaded and transferred before toe-off. Plantar fascia is nice but general lower leg stiffness trumps it.

    Instead of being limited to words…..video is likely to be the real solution. I will share more.

    “It went through rapid elongation before and immediately after mid-stance, reaching a maximum of 9% to 12% elongation between mid-stance and toe-off. During this phase the plantar fascia behaves like a spring, which may assist in conserving energy”.

    I’m thinking both general lower leg stiffness with a greater loaded spring Carl?.

    Why not have the best of both worlds?.

    Can you cite the entire source please (full bib not paraphrase) as not everything is doctrine.

    Carl your speaking of data in regard to windlass mechanics. Can you post this?

    Don’t worry I am just setting up the slow motion video with annotations! Rune will be in Sweden so no worries!

    Page 29-30 from your book. Runner with:

    Take off (b+c):
    external rotation/abduction hip joint
    Talocural joint in varus
    Picture

    landing (picture I+a):
    external rotation of hip joint

    swing leg backside mechanics (H)
    external rotation/abduction hip joint

    Chicken or EGG? Things evolve together but the foot has some very annoying adaptions to mechanics that are hard to change. Lots of joint, lots of weak ligaments. And personally i am not having any luck with isolatede strength work, but i have seen some cool changes from motor learning, manual terapi and running shoes. The runnings shoes actually mobilising a forefoot varus.

    I think in terms of push-off power, the feet could hold great potential.
