In the 70's a Russian scientist, University teacher & University Track Team Coach Nicholas Romanov developed a method of teaching sport specific techniques. He called it the Pose Method. In the 80's it was successfully implemented into the training of many Soviet elite athletes with great results. In the 90's select members of USA & UK Olympic, and Russian & Mexican National Triathlon teams and many other elite level athletes worldwide started implementing the Pose techniques with success. Now it is available to everyone. Use the Pose Method - allow yourself to succeed in your sport!

Reduced Eccentric Loading of the Knee with the Pose Running Method
Conclusions: Pose running was associated with shorter stride lengths, smaller vertical oscillations of the sacrum and left heel markers, a neutral ankle joint at initial contact, and lower eccentric work and power absorption at the knee than occurred in either midfoot or heel-toe running. The possibility that such gait differences could be associated with different types and frequencies of running injuries should be evaluated in controlled clinical trails.
