Re: "Conventional Muscles" and Internal Power

I do not believe they did weight training to learn a different way to jump. If you simply focus on body usage and learn what it feels like to engage specific muscles you do things differently. I'm sorry you think this is wrong or not doable but it is. I've done it and I've seen others do it and taught others to do it. And I don't understand this "conventional" thing vs. "IS" thing anyhow . We all share the same body. We are all capable of the learning the same things. And I don't understand how or why you think Pilates or Rolfing are in any way pseudoscience when - like IS training - they have empirical track records . So I"m bowing out.
