What's a Podium? It's a platform on which a person stands, to be seen by an audience. The higher, the better!
nounBiochemistryany of a group of hormones secreted within the brain and nervous system and having a number of physiological functions. They are peptides that activate the body's opiate receptors, causing an analgesic effect, and nothing does it more for our addiction than WN'ing or being on the podium. It's how you measure what you are about!
Huge results this past weekend across the USA. Most of the cycling success was on the podium, names of people who are in the WN data! These are big races from AZ., in mtb 20, 50 miles, to TN men & women 100 mile mtb, to GA., Speed Week, etc... and the Joe Martin Road Stage races in Arkansas, that's a lot of different hunting.
That pretty much covers it a lot of trails (hard and soft). Can you say on trail, not good results, rather great results and in all types of cycling (e.g. hunt's).
If you are at the pro level, a alpha dog, you want an edge, in fact an inch can be the mile! We do just that, provide the real edge that makes a difference.
Racing is the sporting test of what seems to work best on a given day, a given year, as equipment does change and so does the body. Racing is tough job, you have to be a "Alpha Dog," you can't afraid of a good hunt, tuck tail.
Sport is about physical and mental extertion and bring what you have to the game. That means that if you bike is not set up just so, the person who does have it just so might get the kill first.
WN has been hunting for a lifetime or two, that's why we can! It's how we eat first. WN has had it's nose to the ground for over 50 years.
How do you claim that your methods are going to produce something for the wall? The only way we known, is to be in the hunt and we have been on trail for 15 years now. We have a lot of new pups to train, to get her done! Ha!
Don't think that if you hands are in the wrong place it doesn't make a difference!
If you have the mind-set or you're one of those "Devils advocate" that loves a debate, undermined a trend, we can't help you! You are going to be negative on any subject, pick a bone, express or imply denial, make disagreement.
Perhaps you should step up to the plate, get in the hunt and show you're goods! You might be in a dog fight, and the ego is going to be put to the test. When you have 50 Alpha dogs ready to hunt all at the same time isn't a joyride. Lead dogs earn their keep, that's how they eat.
From year to year you can't just go on trail and think you're going to be the best. It doesn't work like that, but if you aren't at the hunt, you never know.
That dog hunt! Let's go hunting boys, and by the way we invite the gals, they can hunt also!

The pelvis is a segmental link in the human-link chain, bridging the important parts at the sacrum and the lower extremity at the femur.
During active weight bearing, not just static weight bearing, the lower extremity is somewhat fixed. That means the pelvis is free to flex and extend relative to the hard parts like the femur and its many shapes and sizes.
So, if the pelvis flexes or extends in a zone, relative to the femur, the vertebral column must adjust and realign itself to the pelvis.
Major antagonistic muscles play a huge role in aligning everything up. The resistive functions of these muscles are also worked over by gravity for stability. They serve as "antigravity" muscles!
So why do we see so many fit ideas that don't fit relative to strengths and flexibilities?
For starters, you can't track the stability from the outside!
Any less than ideal alignments of the system causing (lordosis, scoliosis, and or kyphosis) or attempt using correctable antagonistic muscles is a waste!
No wonder so many wear out fast! They spend the whole time working harder, maybe its a way to burn fat for a firmer look?
