posemethod When training, exercising, or doing anything else, quality of what you do is always more important than quantity. 5 well performed reps will get you further than 15 poorly done reps. 100 meters ran with good technique will do more for your training than 1k with poor running form. Quality is king. Strive to improve yourself not accumulate numbers. #training #sports #crossfit #running #PoseRunning #nikerunning #mizunorunning #mind #adidasrunning #reebokrunning #pumarunning #RunningRevolution #RomanovAcademy #runningform 3d

posemethod When it comes to measuring angles and degrees in running, the only one that matters is the angle of falling (outlined in green). All others, as show in examples on this image, are completely irrelevant and some make no sense whatsoever.
The fact is, that even the angle of falling is only important when there is a need to calculate speed potential. Before we get to that it's best to first get the running technique straight and improve running form overall. Get that 'falling' going first and then play around with the degrees of the angle of falling to see how you can improve your speed. #speed #runningform #RunningRevolution #sports #crossfit #reebokrunning #adidasrunning #pumarunning #mizunorunning #nikerunning #RomanovAcademy

posemethod Surprisingly many runners think that the foot must be brought up pretty high when running. Bolt's foot in this image is that high strictly due to forces that are already at play. He is moving at a very high speed and he is not exerting any efforts to raise his foot up that high. It happens on it's own. If he was to run slower - his feet would come up lower. When we run to warm up - the feet barely clear the ground. The correct pull taught in the Pose Method is not a long continuous effort, it is instead a short burst of minimal effort by the hamstring muscles. The height & trajectory of your foot change naturally and effortlessly based on your speed. #PoseRunning #runningform #pumarunning #nikerunning #adidasrunning #mizunorunning #reebokrunning #RunningRevolution #RomanovAcademy 6d

Valencia posemethod
posemethod Here's a collage of famous runners - all in running pose from different angles.
Every runner without exception goes through what we call the running pose. Why does it matter more than anything else? It is where the movement forward happens, or any movement for that matter. Movement cannot happen without support. If you don't have support you simply cannot move in any way and in any direction. Support in running 'happens' when the foot is on the ground and the body is passing over it. Shorter time on support is better for speed and prevention of injuries. The shortest time on support is produced when the foot lands on the fore part of it and when the foot is then quickly pulled up to keep the cycle going.
Running happens from running pose to running pose. The less commotion there is in between - the better and faster you run any distance. Of course you can roll through the heel, and try to toe off, and push off.... but all that is a wasted effort that could be better used by focusing on strictly what allows forward movement - maintaining the running pose and quickly changing support.

The runners in the picture are not perfect - they all have/had an occasional imperfection, but much less of them than others.

posemethod "Keep Calm" is the widely circulated humorous internet meme applied to many themes. Ironically there is much truth in that one phrase - Keep Calm. One of the qualities of those who win or achieve success (in all it's meanings) is exactly that - staying calm and focused. So, keep calm and win! #RomanovAcademy #RunningRevolution #sports #strength #run #athlete #runningform #athleticform #CrossFit #keepcalm #winning #instapic #instagood #wednesday 3w

posemethod According to an ancient Chinese saying, "You are as old as your joints". If your joints have full range of motion and move without pain, your movement has the quality of youth.
To attain this, your joints, muscles, and tendons need to be strong enough to absorb, load, and release energy back into movement.
Flexibility, by the meaning of the two words - 'flex' and 'ability' - is the ability to freely move the joints. The key to flexibility, as it relates to muscles, is their ability to relax, allowing your joints to move. In this respect, I am appealing not to muscles, but to joints. The muscles support and empower joint movement. This type of mobility work requires a different mind-set than traditional stretching. Gentle stretching with short holds can also relax the muscle involved, releasing tension, which in turn makes the muscle not longer, per se, but more responsive. By freeing up the movement potential of your joints, you will improve your functional mobility, allowing you to move through
larger ranges of motion. This has nothing to do with stretching your muscles. (The Running Revolution, Prepare to move, Increasing Your Mobility, p.34)

posemethod The Role of the Arms in Running
In the mechanical progression of running, the action starts with the act of falling forward, followed immediately by the rapid change of support from one leg to the next. As an automatic reaction to maintain balance, the body adds a slight rotation of the shoulder, opposite the leg giving up support, thus helping maintain balance. As the shoulders rotate, there is a corresponding movement of the arms. In this sequence of movements, the arms are basically at the end of the line.
In the hierarchy of this system, this means they do less work. It doesn’t mean they are not important, but their actions must work in harmony with the system. If they try to do more work than the system needs, they destroy the efficiency and effectiveness of the movement.

The role of the arms, then, is to listen to the legs and body and be ready to react to any changes in their activity, by making the necessary adjustments to maintain balance. For example, if you stumble on a rough trail, the arms instantly and automatically make the adjustments to correct balance and assist you as you return to optimal form. Unless called upon in such a situation, the arms are always at the ready, doing as little as possible to maintain perfect form and balance.

posemethod To become a better runner you have to let go of the idea of using muscles to drive yourself forward and give in to the idea of the free fall. No matter how wild this may sound, running is just free falling. You fall and catch yourself over and over. Falling is not easy, you have to overcome a deeply ingrained notion that you push off the ground to move forward when you run.
Practice this drill. Stand about 3 feet away from the wall and fall by moving your hips forward over your point of support, the balls of your feet. Maintain your springiness position as you fall forward and keep your ankles loose.

Repeat until you're comfortable letting go and falling.
