  4. To paraphrase a Rowan Atkinson sketch: "some people run as if there is something up their bottom, and other people run as if there is something coming out of their bottom"-



    I'd say the above group of video's fall into the former category.

  5. Everyone must be taught to run "correctly" by the Pose Method...or else!!!!

    Whatever happened to interindividual variation in achieving optimum metabolic efficiency in running?

    What I find amusing about Pose Running (and the same can be said for Chi running) is that I see they try to use a lot of science in their lectures, blog posts, etc but clearly they do not understand or can even properly read what they are quoting or use it wrongly. A lot of the science is actually quite good, but they just don't get it. Cherry picking and confirmation biases are rife!

    They do go to extraordinary length to dismiss one study that shows Pose running is less economical, but in doing so they show how dismally they fail to understand the scientific process and method. Ironically, they blindly accept other research that they think supports Pose, without subjecting that to their same flawed approach to dismissing the other research. You can't have it both ways if you want any sort of cred.

    Even their "biomechanical" arguments used to support Pose are a source of amusement for most biomechanists I know that have looked at it (see this analysis).

    Pose and Chi running fail miserably when you critically appraise the science they pretend to use and the underpinning that support their claims.

    I stand by what I said about Chi Running and the same applies to Pose Running:
    One thing that is different about Pose, is that those who tout Pose as the "one best way" seem to be more sensitive to criticism that others.

    Having said that, none of that actually means that there is anything wrong with Pose Running (its just the 'religious' like fervor of the supporters and the use of science that is a problem) - there are elements of Pose running that most runners probably should consider trying or integrating into their running.
     
  7. Here are some great comments from people who were personally trained by Romanov on his Pose Method of running from Ross Tucker's Sports Scientist website:

     
  8. Here is a very detailed criticism of the Pose technique and Romanov from someone who has been involved in Pose training. Very interesting but not too hard to believe.
