Yes, this is a real thing. Apparently Miley Cyrus and her ‘twerking’ (please note this term is being used very loosely) has America in disarray. And that has bled over into the media. ABC News posted an article about the scientific explanation of Twerking. Again, YES. This is a real thing.
Twerking is such a complex, technical subject, only a Ph.D. researcher can explain how the body does what it does to make it happen.
Twerking is a combination movement involving a deep squat and a pelvic tilt, Michelle Olson, a professor of exercise science and a certified strength and conditioning coach at Auburn University in Montgomery, Ala., explained.“You take a wide stance with your legs turned out at 10 and 2 so your hips are externally rotated,” she said. “Then you pulse up and down as you thrust the pelvis bone forward and back.”
Now, I’m no Ph.D. researcher *rolls eyes over the fact that they felt they needed someone with or studying for a Ph.D.* but I’ve done my share of twerking a time or several. And its more than just a squat and a pelvic tilt. I really think ABC News is just trolling America right now. Because. No. What do you think about their ‘twerking’ definition?
