Prepare the body’s trunk to control rotation. Coiling (rotating) the body, then quickly uncoiling is the primary source of power for many Soldier and athletic tasks such as throwing a punch or heaving an object onto a platform (Figure C-16). Each of these activities produces a torque on the spine and other joints that may cause injury if the forces are uncontrolled. Control comes from setting the hips, tightening the abdominals, and allowing the hips and knees to bend so as to absorb some of the stress of rotation.
