If everyone just leans the proper way to run, then it still makes the people who are naturally fast, FASTER. So what you shave a few tenths off of a second.....if everyone else does the same, does it even matter?
Again, I'll stick with an expert's analysis.
You're taking extreme examples.....no one is going to teach me to run a 4.5...but they can teach me to run faster. That is my point, that is Urlacher's point.....anything beyond that is just being argumentive for the sake of being argumentive.
And no.....teaching one person to run with a certain technique would not apply to everyone. My example was of a singular runner being taught to be more in tune with his body....as the faster runner apparently already
had that ability. Once the slower runner applied what he was taught
, he not only beat his nemisis, he went on to set a record.
