Perhaps he thought it would be easier to tell you that because telling you about centres of gravity and principals of momentum is normally too much for most footballers brain to handle, but if you were sitting on the floor with your legs motionless, how would you move forward if moving your arms made your opposite leg push you forward, seeing how your sitting on your leg and its motionless lol?
Im fairly certain my explaination is correct.
Its two different ideas..
The first one, while sitting on the floor you can appreciate how the arm movement helps quite a bit, like we were talking 25% in fact it makes you move foward even while having your legs paralyzed, stiff, and sitting down.. And he wants to show that if you incorporate it to your running arsenal you can be much faster.. Now just moving your arms, without your legs can probably make you 12.5% faster..
The second one, is a different idea, its to show you are suppose to run, this time while standing up.. How you move one arm say left for example, and its supposed to be like a lever, that pulls the right leg.. Then you move your right arm, and its supposed to be like a lever that pulls your left leg.. Moving your arms in combination with your legs properly will most likely make you 25%
Thats all he wanted to say, and prove.
He meant to illustrate that you dont move left leg left arm like many do.. This is a part of what Icy was talking when reffering to technique and form.. Look at Usain Bolt doing it here.
Left Arm, Right Leg, Right Arm, Right Leg.. All super Fast BOOM-BOOM-BOOM-BOOM..
I was under the notion that arm movement simply helped propel one forward quicker.

It is also a much more logical and fluid movement.
Much like she said
