Pose Method of Running 
by Nicholas Romanov, Ph.D.

Despite the volume o scientifc articles and books written aboutrunning technique, the problem o how to run, and how to teachrunning technique, has still not been satisactorily addressed. Tistremendous output o inormation and opinion remains a disjoint-ed, even eclectic, amalgam o anecdotal observation and experience,devoid o any integral uniying concept.As a result, the teaching process o running is something o a osterchild, a process wholly dependent on the individual coach’s insights,preerences and competence. Without an underlying, developed andaccepted school o thought as to what constitutes proper runningtechnique, what is taught by any given coach or instructor is pretty much the subject o personal whim.
Tis book is my attempt to fll this gap and present an integrated anduniorm approach to running technique that can be systematically taught by instructors and coaches around the world. Te conceptsthat orm the basis o the Pose Method o Running derive not only rom scientifc principles, but also rom observation, intuition andmore than 20 years o working with runners at all ability levels.I proceeded rom the simple assumption that running, like any otherhuman movement, must have a “best way” to be done. o fnd that“best way”, I observed both humans and animals in their runningand tried to identiy the scientifc principles at work in the matter o orward locomotion.Having identifed those principles, I then attempted to develop asystem o human movement that would derive the maximum beneftrom orces that exist in nature. It was my belie that this movement,while accomplishing essentially mechanical tasks, would be as artis-tic and refned as the movements that characterize ice-skating, balletor gymnastics.o my mind, this search or a “best way” to run was an urgent call-ing. I, in act, I could design a curriculum that would allow individ-uals to run injury ree, with better perormance and, most impor-tantly, more pleasure in their pursuit, I would have done a service tocountless athletes.Tus, I present this book as a system that will beneft both runnersand their coaches. It is based on the combination o scientifc rea-soning and simple common sense. As such, the proo o the systemwill not come rom strict scientifc data, but the success o its repeat-ed application over and over again.
