But the so called validations I read for either of these two phrases don't hold water! They are far too ambiguous, lacking the specificity of exactly WHERE and WHY they claim to be gospel.
My hip socket is probably just under 2" in diameter, while my feet are approximately 11" long. Keeping my 'hips over my feet' gives me a wide range of positions, some beneficial, most not.
'Moving my hips forward' can either get me out of the back seat (if I'm there) or it can reduce my ability to edge, guide, or flex functionally, if it is over done.
So my questions are simple- though I know the answers will not be (though they should be)-
Where do we want our hips over our feet?
Why do we want to move our hips forward?
I'll advise any responders right now that I will reply to your posts, and you had better have very solid, logical support for your reply.
Let's see how many of you have an "A" game, and can directly support your ideas using physics, anatomy, ski design, and contemporary technique as your logic base.
Let the fun begin!
