Very true gypsy, great point! I'm sitting here adjusting my seat while I sit in my recliner, and you're right. I can move my upper body forward and still have my 3 points in contact with the chair. Yet, when I lift my seat bones up and put most of my weight onto my pelvic bone, my upper body follows, or I extremely hollow out my lower back *yuck*
Speaking of which - what are the reasonings of the rider, when we see a hollowed out lower back? I do not see how this is functional at all?
MIE- Good pics! Definitely what I call a full seat as well. What you call a "3 point" is what I've heard of as a light seat. Regardless of what we call it, I think we are discussing the same thing. |
Great points too Upnover! I agree, I too think we are talking about the same thing.
