Posture = Performance
FROM THIS ... TO THIS ..... IN 20 MINUTES
(Key takeaway: Posture = Performance)
"You don't build a Ferrari on a bent frame," once said famed postural therapist Patrick Mummy. So before Bicle Hall of Famer JOHN HOWARD plunges whole-hog into the Maximum Overload strength protocol, which will send his horsepower into overdrive, M.O. inventor Jacques DeVore must literally straighten Howard out. (See photo top left).
As Howard's posture improves in the coming weeks, he will be able to lift weight levels similar to that of his protégé DENISE MUELLER, who he is training to break his own bicycle land speed record -- goal: 153mph in the vortex of a LandRover supercar! -- in September. Denise, a multi-time national champion as a junior and an adult in many disciplines of cycling, did not ride a bike for 20 years while she had three kids, and has emerged at age 42 with a strikingly beautiful picture-perfect posture that allows her to lift very heavy weight. The photo of the woman in the red top is her doing a lat pull-down, which works the back and pulls the shoulders rear-ward into their proper, natural, non-kyphotic position. (By the way, after a month of dedicated Maximum Overload workouts, Denise is experiencing rapid gains in power output and speed on the bike. More on this later. She posts at www.teamfirecycle.com and http://theprojectspeed.com/)
The bottom line: Posture ain't just pretty. It's also performance.
