EFFICIENT MOVEMENT FORMULA
Key Position(s) + Change of Support = Efficient Movement.
That's it, that's the formula. It's as simple as that. Efficient movement depends on and is affected primarily by the mechanical part of your movement - pure placement of body & limbs or body positioning
. Everything else involved will work at the rate allowed by the quality of your body's positioning.
What does the word "efficient" mean? Let's look at the online dictionary
. It says: performing or functioning in the best possible manner with the least waste of time and effort.
In Pose Method
, there are key body positions
or poses taught for various sport disciplines
What does "movement" mean? According to the above mentioned source, movement is "The act or an instance of moving; a change in place or position".
In Pose Method, movement forward (or any direction) is viewed as change of support while maintaining the key body pose
While movement or change in place or position can happen in many ways, efficient movement by definition requires precision in order to eliminate unnecessary and taxing movements. Moving from pose to pose by change of support
while using gravity
and other forces makes for a very precise movement that requires less muscular effort & eliminates incorrect muscular effort. Efficiency at it's best.
