whats wrong with floppy wrists?
i see it all the time with some of our 400/800+ guys
It's fairly common at the high school level. In my opinion it's an attempt to keep the upperbody relaxed. In reality though I think it's overkill and it often backfires. When I see athletes running with floppy wrists I almost always see postural problems, especially in the thoracic vertebrae. I haven't pinpointed the reason but I believe it may be because of the fascial communication of all parts of the body. Have you ever seen an elite runner with floppy wrists? I haven't. I've seen cupped hands, clenched fists, extended fingers, but NEVER floppy wrists.
I believe Dan Pfaff noticed that with floppy hands you get floppy feet. Which is not good.
