Transition your training
What I learned from transitioning my approach!
As an endurance athlete, I relish any opportunity to push my body to its absolute limits, whether it’s in the sea, on land, on a board, bike or even just using my body to see how far it can go.
I have been fortunate to have some fantastic results as triathlete in all distances, as well as qualifying and finishing the 2015 Ironman World Championship. Yet this has also left me with the burning question of how can I do this even better? And how can I help other athletes to transition their approach to training.
The art of ‘Forward Motion’ is the answer to moving successfully and injury free. There is no reason that you can’t learn it to! After spending the last year away from a lifestyle which I have grown to love, It has given me a chance to reflect on what I was doing right and what I could do a whole lot better.
One must be aware of (1) how they are currently moving, (2) where they move from (standing still) and (3) how to then move forward.
The human body has in excess 300 joints all with the weight of gravity bearing down on them. Something we cannot change! So why don’t we work with gravity rather than against it. The notion of ‘decompression’ is therefore the key to this.
1. FREEDOM BEFORE FORCE = SUCCESSFUL MOTION.
2. STRENGTH COMES FROM THE SPINE AND PELVIS.
3. SELF INDUCED INJURY IS A LACK OF AWARENESS, NOT BAD LUCK.
The human body is an amazing organism which loves to move. It’s only through poor lifestyle choices does the human body starts to move improperly or with less ease than previously able. Good Forward Motion does not necessarily refer to the strongest mover, it refers to the ease at which someone can produce that movement. Therefore, in endurance sport effortlessness will prevail over force more times than not.
