Human Kinetics,
Pub. Date:
Drawing on the considerable--though widely ignored--scientific literature as well as on his own experience as a coach, Anderson suggest how runners can run faster and more economically with significantly lower risk of injury, and as a bonus, look smoother and better as they run. He covers why form matters, assessing and improving form, and form factors for running success. Specific topics include comparing ordinary and elite runners, improving foot-strike pattern, shortening stance time and increasing cadence, running shoes and form, and integrating form work into seasonal training.
