The Pose method is a simple and comprehensive biomechanical model which eliminates injuries and enables every runner from novice to elite to fully utilize their physiological potential.

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.

ABOUT POSE METHOD® OF RUNNING?
Pose Method® of Running technique, aka POSE Running, is a better way to run. Developed in former Soviet Union in the 70's and included in the textbooks at the turn of the 21 century, Pose Running was published in America in the 90's and is now taught and practiced all over the world. It is used by athletes of all levels and non-athletes of all ages.
POSE & SCIENCE
Pose Running is one of the most scientifically researched methodologies. We have published links to some of the studies that are avaialble online. In recent years, Pose Cycling and Pose Rowing generated published studies as well.
1. S-like body position with slightly bent knees
2. Forward lean from the ankles to employ gravity and work with it not against it
3. Pulling or lifting feet up under the hip not behind the buttocks
4. Ball of foot landing under your body (your GCM - general center of mass)
WHAT CAN IT DO?
Pose Running technique will dramatically change your entire perception of running. It makes running easier and better.
Dramatically improve training and racing performance
Give you a competitive edge
Help prevent injuries
Help you loose orthotics for good
Help you enjoy your running for the rest of your life!
We receive numerous emails with testimonies to how the Pose Running have had a tremendous impact on lives of many runners around the world. We would like to share some of those email with you, please click here to read them online
It is RUNNING TECHNIQUE taught through the Pose Method®. Or it could also be said - running technique taught through poses and it is a first complete system for teaching and learning running technique. In Pose Method training system, running technique is taught as a skill that all of us can develop.
The reason for the development of the Pose Method® of Running was the absence of a method for teaching running technique. Running was always only practiced, but not taught as a skill.
ONE TECHNIQUE FOR EVERYONE
In the Pose Method® it is assumed that running technique is the same for all athletes
regardless of speed or distance. The human organism exists and develops in the gravitational field,
and should stay within a certain biomechanical framework, in which limits are appropriate for the full
utilization of the effect of gravity.
The Running Pose is a whole body pose, which vertically aligns shoulders, hips
and ankles with the support leg, while standing on the ball of the foot. This
creates an S-like shape of the body. The runner then changes the pose from one
leg to the other by falling forward and allowing gravity to do the work. The support foot is pulled from
the ground to allow the body to fall forward, while the other foot drops down freely, in a change of
This creates forward movement, with the least cost (energy use), and the least effort. The end result is faster
race times, freer running and no more injuries!
This simple sequence of movements: the fall and the pull, while staying in the pose, is the essence of running technique.
The Pose model of running consists of three elements: Pose - Fall - Pull and it accepts gravity as the primary force for forward movement instead of muscular energy. To achieve the optimum running technique, the key is to make the greatest possible use of terrestrial gravity. A skilled, knowledgeable runner should be able to work with the force of gravity just as a yachtsman gains energy from the wind.
Analysis of the movement of living creatures through time and space clearly shows that their bodies pass through an infinite number of positions. Most of the positions (or poses) are transitional movements and are the results, not the cause, of proper positioning.

In the Pose Method® it is assumed that running technique is the same for all athletes regardless of speed or distance. The human organism exists and develops in the gravitational field, and should stay within a certain biomechanical framework, in which limits are appropriate for the full utilization of the effect of gravity.
It is used by the members of the National Teams of 4 countries: USA, Great Britain, Mexico and Russia.
The Pose Method® of Running was included into the Physical Education text books in Russia (2001)
there are 5 dissertations based on the Pose Method® of Running
