More About The Running Revolution by Nicholas Romanov; Kurt Brungardt
 
 
 
Overview
From a two-time Olympic coach and creator of the Pose Method who has trained the running elite, an essential guide for all runners seeking to go faster and farther without injury

Christopher McDougall's Born to Run--and the wildly popular natural running trend it sparked--changed the way we think about running, but it has also prompted many questions: Have we been running the wrong way? And, have we been running in the wrong kind of shoe? What is the safest type of foot strike? How many types are there? And what is a foot strike anyway? No existing guide has clearly addressed these concerns--until now. The Running Revolution provides both beginning and experienced runners with everything they need to know in order to safely and efficiently transition to and master a safer and more biomechanically efficient way of running that is guaranteed to improve performance and minimize wear and tear on the body.

More than a one-size-fits-all guide, The Running Revolution provides readers with clear instructions, complete with helpful illustrations, that they can easily integrate into their unique running histories in order to run safely, intelligently, and efficiently for many years to come.

Former Olympic coach Romanov and fitness writer Brungardt (The Complete Book of Abs) offer a manual on how to run faster, more efficiently, and at greater distances while also decreasing the chance of injury. Drawing from the work of Scottish neurophysiologist Thomas Graham Brown, Romanov identifies three universal elements of running: pose, falling, and pulling, which in combination make up a natural form for running: the Pose Method. The book is divided into four parts, the first of which covers the basics: understanding one’s own body, starting a running journal, choosing the right shoe (“flat, thin, or flexible”), getting into the “athletic stance,” and capturing one’s stride on video, stretching, and following a strengthening routine. Part Two deals with structural strength, creating a new perception of movement and neurological patterns, and the improvement of biomechanics. Part Three introduces a nine-week regimen of running and drills. The fourth section discusses gearing one’s workout routine to one’s personal goal, whether that’s a 5K, a marathon, or simply a lifetime of running. Romanov’s years of research and practice, coupled with Brungardt’s instructional writing, should be inspiring and informative for casual joggers and marathon runners alike.
