Correct running technique is incredibly important. Poor technique can lead to wasted energy, slower pace and an increased risk of injury. Running with good technique begins with understanding it...
Fundamentally, running is the same for everyone, even if style makes it look unique. Running is controlled falling. When we run, we harness the force of gravity to create horizontal movement. Using the repetition of pulling and catching, our legs follow our momentum to keep us from falling to the ground. It is really that simple.
The POSE METHOD was developed to standardize the teaching of correct run technique. There are three key elements to run technique. THE POSE (body position), THE FALL (body falling forward), THE PULL (pulling the support foot from the ground). These elements comprise the invariable movements of running. Everything else that our body does during the run process are variable movements. The variable movements that slow us down, tire us out or keep us injured.
The POSE METHOD is not a reinvention of running. The method is simply a way to eliminate the variable movements of running and reinforce the invariable movements (the key elements) of running, which will help you run faster, run longer, and run injury free
