Oh Blimey...I did wonder but...just give us a minute while I strap on my vintage Air Jordans.
*oh my word*
Naturally the advantage is not miraculous, but there was a vid on YT from British news pimping POSE, [not to mention the POSE site itself's pimpin' campaign] claiming significant drops in heart-rate when performing POSE running vs regular style running. My point is that whilst it might not a huge difference in puff built by the training, it's a difference none the less. I suppose for the benefit of your joints it's probably worth a look, since no doubt you (and everyone else who isn't trained, me included) is probably tearing up our bodies trying to run with our apparently shitty form.Quote:
I haven't tested the claims of Pose running so can't defend it or otherwise, but I don't see how cultivating a (supposedly) more efficient stride would lessen its cardiovascular impact to the degree that it dramatically reduced health benefits.

Sweet, 'cause I wanna whup some Kenyan-marathon-runner-butt and I need all the help I can get.
I've been a terrible runner my entire life. The old joke is that I took up fighting because I couldn't run fast enough to get away. Chi Running and the POSE material both provided advice that improved my stride (thus reducing my lower body pain from running), so I give them a cautious recommendation. That said, actual qualified coaching is far and away the best way to improve quickly at just about anything...
years of TMA kata when i was younger means running now pains my knee joints significantly.. even with correct technique it just huts a little less. Swimming is always a no-impact alternative
How's the running coming, BaronVonDingDong?
