So... it's not just about the glutes...
After extensive review and careful study of Chong Xie's videos, I too have unraveled the Secret of Athleticism*.
This information is priceless! (Or equivalent to $99.95).
However, I will charge nothing for this sagely knowledge, but instead make it available free to all 2014 Platinum level ($100) BRS donors.
Do you have a link to the discussion where he was debating others?
Unfortunately, we can't see her big toe:
Ignore the lewd man and his butt photos. I have deciphered the secret. All is known.
no i don't. last argument i saw was deleted. haven't seen any activity from him since.
i'd rather she teach me her secret. she's asstastic.
Lebron's toes are horrid!
Those are the type of butt cheeks I'm aiming for
Sorry to disappoint.
A quick search of this site for elastic recoil will help you unravel "The Secrets of Athleticism" for yourself - and possibly provide a good deal more entertainment!
Elastic recoil is certainly important, but Chong Xie thinks that there are specific practices to enhance it.
The secret shouldn't only be available only to those who can afford to donate. (This is BRS, not the American political system.)
In a place where all are welcome to join, merely by taking off their shoes, we should be more egalitarian.
So, all those who help TJ during her sick leave, are eligible as well.
He may just have a different approach to the same target. There are many routes to the same goal. His may work for him - but for how many others?
Actually, his "secret" appears to be a bit more fundamental than that. Hence, his claim why everyone should be doing it.
Thankfully, the "secret" does not require one to have horrid toes. Remember that Xie Chong's theories are based on observations of shod athletes. Those horrid toes are due to shoe wearing.
Xie Chong's lack of observation of the habitually barefoot leads to theories and practices based on disfigured shodden feet. Does this remind you of another field of study?
Parts of Xie Chong's "secret" are based on normal anatomy, others not so much.
Perfectly normal feet of barefoot basketball players. Not horrid at all.
i don't watch bball anymore but the quick vid i saw of Lebron jumping, he doesn't get very vertical. no where near like Mike.
I thought that these videos were quite telling of the “theory” behind Chong Xie’s “secret”.
Where should the foot impact the ground using hyperarch mechanism of the feet?
Exercise to Get the Full Functionality of Your Toes Back
Hyperarch Hop to strengthen the arch, toes, foot muscles,fascia and tendons
Hyperarch Squat for glutes, say good bye to conventional squat
I’m no foot expert, and all this is pure conjecture...
Chong Xie: Where should the foot impact the ground using hyperarch mechanism of the feet?
It seems that from t=1:20 and the photo of Lebron James, that Chong Xie thinks that hammer toes are the “secret”.
Chong Xie: Exercise to Get the Full Functionality of Your Toes Back
Chong Xie’s video and logo remind me of something. Perhaps, he (re)”discovered” something.
Short Foot Exercise

Again, Chong Xie’s videos remind me of something. Yet, another (re)”discovery”.

Hmm, reminds me of a couple of articles.
4 Easy Progressions of the Short Foot to Provide Knee and Foot Pain Relief
3 Reasons Why You Need to Short Foot by Dr. Splichal
So, it might seem that Chong Xie's curious observation of the “ideal” foot (Lebron James’s hammertoes) and the “development” of some exercises, incidentally lead to the “re-discovery” of the intrinsic muscles of the foot, err.. “hyper arch mechanism”.
So, what do we think? Is running up on our toes with short feet and glutes engaged the answer to all our prayers?
I don't think that the docs are recommending that short foot be practiced during running. It seems to be more of a strengthening or rehabilitative exercise?
It certainly is!
