Hollow Body Hip position
ayloedxa posted a topic in StrengthGreetings fellow friends, I have had a lot of discussion about the hollow body shape concerning the pelvis and/or legs. 1. If for example you are hanging from the high bar, you should press your chest inwards to achieve a round back. Now should there be an angle between the legs and the lower back/pelvis, i.e. should there be a small pike? Or should it be completely straight and all the roundness should come from the upper back area? I hope this question is clear :S 2. Also, when I do the hollow body on the floor, should I try to press my lower back so far into the ground, that my glutes lift off the ground? I hope that I articulated myself well enough and you can help me with this problem, Fynn
Landing in hollow?
Raidho posted a topic in MovementSo I've taken up some parkour-training along with F1 and rehabing after shoulder surgery. REEEAAALLY basic stuff like jumping and landing silently and in control. I'm staying away from the different vaults until the end of the year. A question on landing and absorption of impact and what is best for the spine, especially the lower back. It seems as when I land straight down, I tend to let my lower back go into extension. I do of course land on the balls of my feet and bend the knees, but what about hip rotation and the spine? It feels as if I'm gonna hurt myself if i don't watch it. Should I think that my spine should be as if in a hollow body position? Aka the tailbone a bit tucked under? How do I best distribute the impact through out my body if i don't roll? I figure gymnast must be quite good at this since they regularly "stick landings" dismounting from stallbars, rings etc.
