    static excersises are like the worst to build strength....
    endurance and some strength in that particular position... yes, anything else... no

    Check out this thread (and some of the others on that forum) to see what I mean.

    so youre telling me stance training and static positions do not build explosive and springy energy as well as balance a stronger connection to the earth and better circulation/perception of chi. I have no formal training yet it seems that you have. that means you should know what you are talking about. correct me if im wrong.

    Either way....

    great judgement from a headshot...


    I'm just saying, I've done stance training, and it helps with somethings, but as far as building strength goes... well, I'm not the biggest believer that it is the easiest or best way. It has its merits, for sure, but I try to put more time in doing squats, lundges, both waited and not, also doing stances drills, like wu bu, or something to that effect. Lets just say I try to put more in the movement than the static posture. It is the transition that gets you where you are going, not how low your pubu is.

    Ha dont get butthurt i was just yankin your chain. but i still disagree. lunges may be good at developing muscles externally. but horse stances train the deeper muscles of your leg isolating them more and giving them a real workout. i personally think your approach is harder than static postures.

    As far as building strength, when I was younger and really weak, I began doing invisible chairs (not the same as a static mabu, but same principle). I found that my legs were very strong. My muscles felt denser, they were harder, and I could run faster.

    Of course static training is not the ultimate leg excersize, but it is a very very good one. I believe it's more benifitial than you give it credit for.

    I've written about fast versus slow muscle fiber development, somewhere in the forum. That thread might help, if someone could find it.

    I didn't find the muscle fibers thread in the archive, but I did find your post on life. Very inspirational. I am thinking about the medical field, and I wion't lie to you, it's about the money. Dentistry. Hard work for sure, but if I can shift myself to a pay now play later, I think I can stand a better chance.

    In the wrong thread, but I don't think it completely hijacks the thread, so it's all gravy.
