Pose Running and “The Science”
Pose running technique has a very specific standard derived from an underlying theory of movement. To the best of my knowledge, Pose is the only running technique that has a standard or for that matter is based on a specific theory of movement. All other running techniques I’m familiar with are based on disjointed rules-of-thumb, with no unifying concept.
Mileage in Running
Each organism has its own limit of energy, which is mostly predetermined by its genetics.
The Role and Importance of a ‘Standard’
Unless we figure out how to defy gravity or it suddenly changes the way it works – we will abide by its current standard of operation that has not changed since our planet came into being.
How Science is Misused and Misunderstood
If the context is too limited, the bigger picture is missed and the results can be misleading. This is also one reason why so many studies seem to contradict each other. They lack proper context when analyzed.
On your feet all day
A while ago I was asked to discuss this topic by one of our clinic’s attendees in London. He had a job that required staying on his feet all day and he had lots of problems due to such overloading. I wasn’t surprised to hear about his problems related to this circumstance. It’s not just… Read more
Culture – latin cultura – fineness of feelings, thoughts, tastes, manners, etc., civilization of a given people or nation at a given time; development of the mind or body by education, training, etc., behavior that is socially taught, rather than instinctive or individual. (Thorndike-Barnhart Student Dictionary, HarperCollins Publishers, 1992 p.270). Why do we need to… Read more
Gravity and movement
Gravity is mentioned everywhere – advertising, articles, news, etc. It is talked about in relation to what seems to be a random selection of things like treadmills and some other exercise equipment, shoes, even bras, and a few other curious products. All of that is great yet based on the information mentioned along with the… Read more
Pose Method of Running in Sports
The question of how to use Pose Method of running effectively in other sports is asked all the time. Running is part of virtually all sports and athletic activities, but it’s not all just running of course. We’re dealing here with sprinting, dashing, zig zagging, coming to a sudden stop and then suddenly dashing again,… Read more
The Real Paradox of the Extensor Paradox
Considering the running motion, we already know that maximum quadriceps muscle activity occurs at the transition between knee flexion and extension and coincides with maximum vertical ground reaction force. After this, knee extensor muscle activity starts to diminish and ends almost entirely just as leg extension begins. So as the leg is rapidly extending, the… Read more
Pose Method of Throwing
Just like the rest of the Pose Method techniques, the Pose Method of Throwing is a system for teaching human movement, throwing in this case, through key body positions or poses that allow for the best and most efficient movement/energy transfer in our gravity controlled environment. While all techniques have different key poses and a… Read more
