What happens when running technique is taught? People assuming that it can improve performance and reduce injury risk, but the evidence is less clear. We look at that evidence, and the risks associated with forcing technique onto runners
In Part 2 of a series on running technique, we look at the biomechanical basis for Pose running, and contrast it to barefoot, Chi running and known biomechanical principles for running. Is natural better?
An introduction to running technique, covering the promises made by Pose and Chi, as we build the picture around what the science says about the optimal way to run
