Why Whip Kick With Whip Fins?

The key to more efficient locomotion comes from coupling the torso's movement to make the upper leg whip the lower leg faster. Just as a whip accelerates as it tapers down in size, your legs can accelerate if you relax your lower legs to make them more like whips. Use whip kicks with Whip Fins to move more efficiently and with more natural speed and power in the water. Whip kicks use the same range and type of motion that works best for walking and running.

Hypothesis for a Better Understanding of Human Movement

Summary: This blog introduces a hypothesis for understanding human movement both in practice and in computer modeling. Instead of using a kinematic chain as the model, a better mathematical model would reflect the tapering mass of our limbs in the manner that reflects the tapering mass of whips - kinematic whip modeling. Whips increase speed and power performance by using laws of physics. Our limbs work best when using the same laws of physics. Understanding how to manage our limbs best requires an understanding of using them similar to whips.
