One factor that I am surprised nobody mentioned is...

Your radius of hollow on your skates. The deeper the hollow, the more friction, and more wear and tear on your body. What ROH do you skate on? How much do you weigh? You should experiment on a shallower hollow...you will be surprised.

I have sciatica and I adjust my hollows according to ice conditions. ONce I feel the strain on my lower back/hamstrings I know that I am at too deep of a hollow.
