Be Particular, but See the Big Picture

A few days ago I was coaching a set of inline half-kneeling chops and was about to have a come-apart because the athlete’s knee was adducted underneath her. This same athlete has had a lot of difficulty controling the same knee in jumping and landing. As you know, this adducted/internally rotated position is the prime one for non-contact ACL injuries. As I sat there lamenting the posture (as I feel structure certainly dictates function), another coach made a point that I failed to recognize. The exercise is INLINE, so obviously her knee would be adducted. Ooops.

What’s my point? Well, I’m all for looking at the minutiae, but if you don’t see the big picture first than you are going to spend a whole lot of time looking for things that aren’t there.

Best regards,

Carson Boddicker
