Knee Hyperextension and Swimming: Is it Trainable?

Check out Swimming Science for our discussion on the trainability of knee hyperextension in swimmers.  This topic was interesting to consider, since hyperextension is generally viewed as a negative trait on land that can predispose athletes to a variety of injuries.  As Dr. Mullen notes in a preface to the post, there can be a fine line between a trait that facilitates world class performance and a trait that becomes a medical condition. 

True greatness has both elements of "nature" and "nurture."  While it is rarely possible, and sometimes undesirable, to reverse engineer the exact template of greatness, it behooves us to look toward the best in the world to see what elements other athletes can learn from.
