Product Description

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.

Although presented well, there is too much information on this DVD series for the average person. This is more for a coach or someone maybe wanting to teach. I did learn a lot, but it was mostly over my head. My goal was to learn a bit of running technique and this was way more than I needed and kind of fried me by the end. Your needs may vary, so decide accordingly.

This DVD is a good eye opener for what you don't normally find on DVD's. There are a host of new technical drills that provide the coach with food for thought as to how to improve elastic properties with their athletes. While the drills may not make someone amazingly fast on their own they do provide a nice way of addressing and improving reactive properties in particular.

This is by far the best DVD for the beginning to advance coaches period. It highlights different running styles and errors that need to be corrected. Frans Bosch also includes exercises and drills that can be daly added to a training program.

Frans Bosch is one of the foremost experts in the field of motor learning. This DVD is a great introduction to his theories/philosophies and shows how to apply them to athletes of all levels. A must buy for anyone who works with athletes or people who want to learn how to run.
