The Running Revolution

How to Run Faster, Farther, and Injury-Free—for Life
Borrow Borrow Borrow
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.

  • From the book

    THE RUNNING REVOLUTION

    "The Pose Method of running has not only eliminated my injuries, it has been an integral part of continued improvement in my chosen sport. In fact at fifty-two years of age I am still improving. A bonus of the Pose Method for me has been significant health and strength improvement. My journey has been patient and progressive and had I continued to run as I did previously I believe I would now be limited to playing board games. My advice is to be patient and persevere; it truly is worth it."

    —Terry Roberts, twenty-eight time Ironman finisher and Ironman Australia legend

    "I have used these principles to develop running skill in U.S. Army Soldiers since 2008 and have seen decreases of up to four minutes on a two-mile run within just two weeks."

    —Dr. Charles Blake, U.S. Army Major and physical therapist

    "About one year ago, I could not run fifty yards without extreme IT Band Syndrome pain. I spent thirty 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."

    —David Kyle, associate director of health and physical education, University of Alabama

    "The material and insights detailed in The Running Revolution are scientifically, physically, and emotionally profound. The Pose Method has the potential to be used as a standard by which running performances can be evaluated, coached, and enhanced. If you are a runner looking for a resource to reduce injury risk, improve performance, and build your training program, look no further. In twenty-five years of working with running athletes, I have yet to find a more meaningful resource."

    —Tom Whipple, physical therapist, Penn State Sports Medicine, and author of The Endurance Paradox

    "Romanov's teachings have dramatically changed and fundamentally shaped the way we think about, understand, and teach not only running, but all movement. I can say unequivocally that no other information I have acquired in my career has influenced my teaching process more. The Pose Method is the only teaching method we use for our runners at La Palestra."

    —Pat Manocchia, former Good Morning America fitness expert and founder of La Palestra Center for Preventative Medicine

    "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."

    —Roy M. Wallack, author of Barefoot Running Step by Step and Run for Life

    "The Pose Method of running has been a crucial component of my physical therapy practice. Not only does this method offer a clear standard for teaching and modifying running form, it also allows runners to run more efficiently. I instruct my patients in the Pose Method before allowing them to run again. Since adopting this practice I have seen patients who were unable to run for years not only start running again, but do so pain free. Other patients have shaved one to two minutes, on average, off their two-mile Army Physical Fitness Test run times. Since learning the Pose Method, I have personally dropped my half marathon time by ten minutes."

    —Major Angela Diebal, U.S. Army physical therapist

    "There's no doubt about it, the Pose Method made me a more efficient runner. And the beauty of the system is...

    August 18, 2014
    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.

    Essentially a primer and training manual on natural running techniques, this book will introduce many readers to Romanov's Pose Method. This method of running and training emphasizes the runner becoming more in tune with his or her body, its alignment, how it is moving, and so on. All bodies, according to Romanov, are made to run in the Pose Method. But, because of an overemphasis on heavily padded and highly supportive shoes, as well as an acceptance of various running styles (think "heel-striker"), runners now have to relearn how to run naturally and properly. The book contains many helpful lessons and strength and stretching routines, as well as more psychological advice (keep a running journal, focus on one lesson at a time). Runners with all levels of experience will find this volume helpful and motivating, though beginners may find it most useful. VERDICT It can certainly be debated whether relying on just one method or technique for running is a good idea, but Romanov's arguments are convincing.--Derek Sanderson, Mount Saint Mary Coll. Lib., Newburgh, NY
