Proof that both pose and Chirunning are based on false science
READ REPORT HERE
Having tried both Pose and ChiRunning my conclusions were that gravity does not pull you forward.
Both methods tell you to lean forward from the ankles to use gravity to pull you forward.
In fact Danny Dreyer recommends that the faster you want to run, lean more forward.
My own conclusion was this just made you land harder on the ground as you fell forward!
But a slight forward lean from the ankles helps by;
1/ letting you lean your body weight into the air resistance or headwind, helping to increase speed.
2/ A slight lean also helps in increasing horizontal force and hence increases speed.
BUT leaning forward does not help you use gravity to run faster!
