Ok so i overshot a jump the other day and landed hard hard on the flat but as i was coming down, i let my legs go all limp and i landed like that. That got me thinking, when you overshoot a jump, is it better to land with your legs all limp and relaxed or actually try to brace for the impact by bending your knees? I was thinking also about how drunk drivers survive crashes more than the people the crash into because they're muscles are all relaxed cause theyre drunk.
If you brace for landing you are more likely to land it but if you overshoot a massive jump and/or have weak bones you may break bones. If you relax your muscles you are less likely to land it but you are also less likely to break bones.
"Rather than an unnecessary and predictable story about a bunch of assholes partying, consider this a recitation of the notion that skiing still draws camaraderie from the reckless, decadent, and fun loving antics that it was founded on."
I'd say don't keep them entirely loose. Not so tight that you'll end up breaking something, but just so you lower your risk of damaging a vital organ.
If worse comes to worst, though, it's better to break a leg than injure a vital organ. Energy absorbed used breaking a leg is energy taken from the rest of your body hitting the ground.
dont go limp before taking a big hit. Its like getting punched in the stomach; do you relax, or contract your abdominal muscles? Contracting your muscles will create a second wall against impacts. Your muscles will deflect the blow.
2. if you go limp, you have exactly 100% of crashing because you will never have the strength to hold up you body. You should try to stick it, then let the impact take over absorption. This way, your legs will take the blunt of the impact and you body to take the rest.
3.If you limp, you are going to flail. Flailing will cause joints to move in odd positions while taking impacts. these movements are harmless, unless you take an impact on it.
Yeah, I quoted myself, that just proves how awesome I am
