About the Director
Frans Bosch trains top athletes, jumpers and sprinters, among whom the high-jumpers Wilbert Pennings and Tora Harris are the most well known. He is the national coach teaching jumping at the Koninklijke Nederlandse Atletiek Unie (KNAU). He also teaches anatomy and biomechanics at KNAU. In addition, he has worked as illustrator for numerous publications in the field of medico biology. For many years Ronald Klomp has supervised top middle-distance runners such as Ellen van Langen, Simon Vroemen, Jim Svenøy, Marcel Laros and Gert-Jan Liefers. In his classes at KNAU, he has taught hundreds of individuals how to train running. Together with Frans Bosch he has written the standard work about running titled Running: Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology in Practice He is presently using his abundant practical experience and background as academic in the field of movement to teach medicobiology classes at the Fontys Sporthogeschool.
FIVE HOURS OF CONTENT-2 DISK SET!An advanced running technique is presented based on the application of knowledge gained from anatomy and biomechanics. You will get tremendous insight into how different muscles work together as well as alone during running. Extensive information is given on the structure and function of the most important muscles. Topics include start and acceleration, high-speed and efficient running. This takes into account differences in backgrounds and interests of runners. Information on technique is provided on two levels. Level 1 assumes that the reader has no prior knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics. Complicated principles are explained clearly without in-depth discussion of human anatomy. Level 2 assumes a basic knowledge of anatomy and some insight into biomechanical principles in as far as they are relevant to running.
