Mike, it is not the high knee recovery but rather a heel recovery….the knee position is the chicken after the laid egg. I’m sure you’ve even heard Loren speak and teach thigh pop/acceleration and not high knee recovery.
How is thigh acceleration different from knee lift / hip flexion? I’m not following your argument at all. Even “stepping over” cues active hip flexion. Different cue same response in my opinion. Are we debating cues or action?
