[quote author="Jeremy Richmond" date="1247425158"][quote author="Flow" date="1247405708"] now look at my post again and you´ll see i´m saying that there are tons of fast people with apt.
Michael Johnson had a huge apt. Flo-Jo might have also had one but its well disguised. ;-)[/quote]
Michael Johnson injured his hamstrings almost every time he tried to run at absolute maximum speed. Look at his early college career when he ran more 100s, or 1994 when he wanted to be the first sub10, sub20 and sub44 guy, or the 150m race with Donovan. MJ had a big anterior tilt, but he didn’t push off hard behind himself at the end of his stride like most people do with this problem, so he didn’t create much long axis rotation which would cause him to get his foot out in front of his center of mass and injure himself. His femur would hardly ever get behind the plumbline of his torso. In some races when he tried to push harder he did push more behind himself and got hurt. Even in his Atlanta WR race he injured himself during the run but was able to hang on.
I think the fact that the 200 is on the curve when you are the freshest so you don’t hit as high a max velocity as in the 100m allowed him to run some good 200s. He also was in front off the curve in almost every race so he never pressed and pushed hard late in his stride. When he did have to press he blew up.[/quote]
prooves my point: increase stridefrequency/decrease range of motion when u have a big apt and you wont get hurt : P btw didnt he blow his quad in the race with donovan?
