Pose Method of Throwing

Analysis of Usain Bolt’s running technique
If Bolt manages to increase his average step frequency of running to the level of his rivals, just to something around 4.5 steps per second (270 steps per minute) having the same average angle of falling, his result on 100m could be 9.11 seconds.

Stride length and range of motion
Understanding the difference between stride length and range of motion continues to be an area of confusion that has been difficult for many of my students to overcome. All too often in my clinics, I find that I need to keep coming back to this point, to clarify the biomechanical and psychological differences between these two properties.
Pose Method® for Senior Runners
This is a rather popular topic on our website. I understand it completely because I had lots of experience with this particular age group during my personal training work.
