Running barefoot isn't as natural as we're led to believe. Recent studies have shown that up to 85% of runners get injured every year, how natural is that? The most important question that running ""barefoot"" or ""naturally"" doesn't address is how we should run. Repetitive ground impact forces are at the root of most running injuries. A 30 minute jog can log more than 5,000 foot strikes; its because of this volume of movement that efficient technique is so essential for runners.
Developed in the 1970's, the Pose Method of Running is the most researched approach to running in the world. Most significantly, the Pose Method has been shown to reduce knee impact forces by 50% while improving running economy during a 12 week training cycle. A Russian Coach & Scientist, Dr. Nicholas Romanov, developer of the Pose Method, has worked with numerous Olympic teams throughout the years which include the Triathlon teams of the US and UK. Today, training with the Pose Method is available around the world with the largest network of running specialists worldwide.
