Running is one of the most injury-prone activities in the Army and is the most common training activity.
Dr. Nicholas Romanov, founder of Pose Method of Running, and his team came to Ft. Stewart, GA this past week and conducted a two-day block of instruction for 40 Dog Face Soldiers. Those service members will now be qualified to conduct running clinics for their respected unit, continuing the training of proper biomechanics, technique and ultimately reducing injury while improving readiness. They will be qualified to take the online certification and add Certified Running Technique Specialist to their ERB.
The running test is part of the physical fitness evaluation, and is commonly failed not due to a lack of trying, but lack of skill.
Pose Training class not only highlighted my mistakes with running but demonstrated how to correct them and others Soldiers with minimal to no equipment. I am excited to see more installations support Pose Method of Running training and the positive outcomes that follow.
