About Pose Method ®
If you’ve ever read “tips” on how to improve your running – lean forward, run on your forefoot, don’t overstride, increase your cadence to 180, etc – you’ve read bits and pieces of the Pose Method of Running. Developed in 1977 by Dr. Nicholas Romanov, a Soviet era sport scientist and introduced to runners worldwide in 1993, it started a revolution in running.
Running technique is the element that can make or break any athlete or runner. Just think about the number of professional athletes that get sidelined by knee, hamstring, ankle injuries. Direct hits and collisions do not produce as many injuries as poor running technique does. In fact it is the #1 cause.
Proper technique is the cornerstone of every sports discipline or any other activity that involves human movement: dancing, ballet, martial arts, tennis, etc. Running is no different. Learning the correct running Pose is just as important as having a stable position for an overhead squat, or proper asana in yoga. So in order to run faster, run longer, avoid injuries & reduce impact on your body – you need to improve your technique.
Pose Method running uses forward falling due to gravity and tweaks the poses we naturally move through to harness physics in a way that allows for less energy or effort being used. The end result is faster run times, freer running, and no more injuries!
