Like that's a fucking selling point. I like my workouts to be 2 hours long, slow paced, and be comfortable enough to chat it up with the boys and check out the cardio bunnies. Fuck you and your 45 minutes of wanting-to-kill-yourself workouts.
The problem was FILA's lack of compliance with IOC requests to make the sports more entertaining. The IOC is right. Current freestyle and Greco scoring encourages passivity rather than action: score a one point takedown, lie on the other guy for 15 seconds, restart and look like you are wrestling for the time so you can take the period. College is worse when you throw in riding time. A lot of 1-0 victories because one guy kept a guy down longer than the other.
The takedown and accumulated points rules are good since they make sense (most points win) and are more like folkstyle.
Edit: I'm glad they didn't get rid of the singlet. There was talk of going with fighter shorts and compression tops.
Close e'nuff; and local too
P.S.. Adistar 2008 are fucking excellent; too bad they don't fit me T_T But in the end it's the person inside the shoe that matters... oh well this is a clothing forum :P
Even beyond that, is it really possible to increase ankle mobility?
This is an olympic lifter so you'd assume his mobility would be as good as he could possibly be after years of lifting for a young age, but he's pretty much wearing high heels. I assume that's to compensate for (relatively) poor ankle mobility.
I think there's a limit that's different for everyone of how much mobility they can attain; for example my daughter can squat atg with a v.upright torso because she has awesome hip + ankle mobility and because her proportions make it easy for her, while I on the other hand have awesome ankle mobility yet average-low hip mobility meaning I lean forward a lot when I squat.
I agree with this. There is a mechanical impingement that prevents further mobility.
Besides, you shouldn't be bending your ankles that much when you squat.
