The Pose Method of running has not only eliminated my injuries, it has been an integral part of continued improvement in my chosen sport. In fact at 52 years of age I am still improving. A bonus of the Pose Method for me has been significant health and strength improvement. My journey has been patient and progressive and had I continued to run as I did previously I believe I would now be limited to playing board games. My advice is to be patient and persevere; it truly is worth it.
The Pose Method of running (developed by Dr. Romanov) has been fundamental to increasing my speed. Continually monitoring and adjusting my technique with drills and strength exercises he improves my muscle elasticity and running efficiency.
At the Multisport School of Champions, I worked with the Russian coach, Dr. Nicholas Romanov on my running form. After the session, I bent my knees a little bit. It looks like a shorter stride, but it’s not. My leg turnover is quicker, and my foot rests on the ground less. This new running style puts less stress on my quads and back. It works, because before I was never able to do better than 1:03 for 11 miles on my tempo runs, and I managed 1:01:30 after this session. The style is more fluid; I feel 30 pounds lighter when I run.
