Are you leaking energy?
Dr. McGill is a spinal biomechanist at the University of Waterloo in Canada & is considered one of the foremost experts on spinal biomechanics. He works with some of the most elite athletes on the planet helping them develop strategies on energy efficient movement. He uses the term ‘energy leak’ to describe efficiency. When talking about the high performance athlete, it’s not good enough to be efficient with the production of force. One must be equally efficient at the conservation of energy/force to prevent major injuries.
