The debate about running posture is an eternal hot topic among runners. Dr. Romanov’s theory does not simply answer the question of which part lands first, but gives a “template” of running posture – posture running method, which teaches you how to run correctly.

Just as running itself pursues persistence and long-term benefits, this book focuses on runners’ more lasting sports careers.

The concept of posture running proposed by Dr. Romanov includes three key basic movements: running posture, falling, and pulling up.

In the book The Running Revolution, he gave us a detailed introduction to the preparation of posture running method (such as how to choose a suitable pair of running shoes, dozens of stretching exercises), technical movement analysis, and corresponding strength training.

It comprehensively explains how to apply the posture running method to practice: analyze your running movements, how to run in different environments, correct wrong posture, prevent common sports injuries, and so on. It help runners achieve healthy, happy, and uninjured running.

The book has a wealth of real-person demonstration illustrations, which is more convenient for the readers to refer to and learn.
