To tens of thousands of runners, including me, Nicholas Romanov walks (and runs) on water. Approaching running as a skill to be learned, his groundbreaking, much-copied Pose Method established a new paradigm, promoting a soft, natural landing that minimizes impact, maximizes speed, eliminates injuries, and saves running careers. No one thought about form until Romanov came along; now we know that it is crucial. I’ve interviewed dozens of runners who simply would not be running without it.
The material and insights detailed in The Running Revolution are scientifically, physically, and emotionally profound. If you are a runner looking for a resource to reduce injury risk, improve performance, and build your training program, look no further. In 25 years of working with running athletes, I have yet to find a more meaningful resource.
About one year ago, I could not run 50 yards without extreme IT Band Syndrome pain. I spent 30 minutes with Dr. Romanov and could run as far and as much as I wanted pain free. Today, I am the USA Paratriathlon National Champion.
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.
