Ski Diva Extraordinaire
@Matro. I hope some others with better explanatory skills chime in on dorsiflexion. As I think of it, dorsiflexion is an active movement of the foot. If I was hanging with feet and skis suspended in the air this would bring my ski tips up. I prefer to think of the goal as moving my hips, belky button, center of mass, bidy, however you define it, over the center of the foot from where it may have fallen behind as a result of acceleration and body not keeping up. The dorsiflexion movement is somewhat limited to my lower extremity and I am often seeking to readjust my whole body. Personally, thinking of getting the front half of my lower leg to maintain contact with tongue of boot by moving the entirety of my body forward works better. For some thinking of sliding feet back under the body from out front works better. I do think the goal is the same, a balanced and centered stance, and how we activate muscles similar but we each may use different muscle and thought triggers to get there.
