Two of the main guides to natural (including barefoot) style running are the Evolution DVD and the Pose DVD+Book. I have both, and like both, but the material is quite different. The actual recommended running styles are very similar and both stress avoiding the traditional heel striking style caused by expensive sports shoes to avoid their associated injuries and to improve efficiency. I also browsed articles about Chi running but found too much "eastern philosophy" cluttering up the main running information, so I settled on just Evolution and Pose as the source material for my journey.

The Evolution DVD is a very simple but complete explaination of natural (forefoot/midfoot) style running and has the descriptions right in the video demonstrations. You can easly grasp the concepts and start to apply them, and probably become a reasonably good natural style runner. It also has a nice simple (but seemingly complete) set of drills. But, almost guaranteed, you will not be perfect and will have some flaws which need an experienced instructor/coach to identify and help correct - if perfection is your goal. If all you want is to become a good amateur/recreational runner (and minimize injuries) then this is a great choice.

The Pose book has a huge amount more background description, sometimes quite a bit too much and too wordy so you can easily fall into skimming and/or become sidetracked. But in the end it is more detailed, and the Pose method is based on much more detailed scientific research (not to say there is anything different or magical about its end conclusions). The DVD by itself is not really enough, most folks will need the book to go with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential to learn style but expensive August 8, 2005
Verified Purchase
Learning a new running style such as this would be next to impossible without the guidance provided by this DVD. I have the book and without the DVD I feel that I would at the very least risk injuring myself, if not ending up running in a manner that was not intended by using the book alone.

While I think the DVD is essential if you wish to learn the POSE method of running by yourself, it is expensive and I would make sure you try and get all the information you can from other sources to make sure this is right for you.

Many people have found this running system to have completely revolutionized their method of running but just as many have not so buyer beware, check the background information on the system before you buy this.

If you do decide to buy this DVD the Companion Drill Book is included with this and does not need to be purchased separately(like I did).

5.0 out of 5 stars great companion to Pose book September 19, 2005
Verified Purchase
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video must be worth a million. This DVD is a great companion to Dr. Romanov's book on Pose running.

Being able to see how running Pose style is supposed to look is a big help. I have viewed Dr. R's free run in slow motion several times to compare it against a video my wife took of me running, so I could see what I needed to correct.

The DVD contains lot of drills and exercises also. It is good to be able to see how they are supposed to be done, in addition to reading about them in the book.

If you are serious about learning Pose, I highly recommended getting the DVD.

2.0 out of 5 stars Save your money for a good pair of shoes January 16, 2007
By Fredjo

I bought the video and was disappointed. It is simply not worth the $50 they are asking for it. About half of the video is comprised of repeated clips of Dr. Romanov running. The other half shows drills that one can do to help transform into a Pose runner.

I'm a big believer that there is one method that allows for efficient and injury free running and I'm sure Dr. Romanov's clincs are well worth the cost. However, this video falls short of their price tag and should probably be priced around $19.95 range... maybe.

Highly recommend getting this POSE Method DVD and the Evolution Running DVD.


If you've read Born to Run Chapter 27 (highly recommended), you know there are four main schools of running instruction.

Chi Running by Danny Dreyer (S.F.) (Book + DVD)
Evolution Running by Ken Mierke (Virginia) (DVD)
POSE Running by Nicholas Romanov (Florida) (Book + DVD)
Barefoot Running books by numerous people

Having taken a half-day course on Chi Running, read part of the books above, watched all of the DVD's, and have 70% completed the transition to POSE/Evolution (still working on longer distances), I can say the following:

1. Evolution = POSE = Barefoot running Style. If you master POSE / Evolution, you will have great form for barefoot.

2. Chi Running is 80% the same as the POSE/Evolution except Chi has you landing midfoot. This softens the heelstrike without putting too much strain on the achilles/calf, however, you will not be able to run barefoot with Chi Running. You cannot have any heel strike with barefoot running or you will quickly have a big headache.

3. Evolution Running DVD was made recently and has the best explanations of the physics why we should run on our forefoot with shorter strides.
It has useful 9 drills (See Bonus section), but POSE's work the calves better, which for heel strikers will be most atrophied muscle.

4. POSE Running was made on a low budget, but Romanov looks like a spry gazelle doing the drills.
Dr. Romanov seems to be more aware of the dangers of transitioning quickly to forefoot striking and has 2 levels of a half-dozen drills each to master before running with his method.

5. I recommend the 2 DVD's Evolution Running and POSE. Skip the books unless you love to read dry running advice. Sports are best taught visually. Watch Evolution first, then POSE. It's all you need.

This book has good points but is very redundant. Out of all that's being said, the whole idea is to basically run on the balls of your feet and do not over-extend your stride. Read more
