Product description

Review

Running is a simple sport, right? But why does almost everyone get hurt? As Jay discovers in this valuable guide, the reason is an amazingly complex mix of anatomy, strength, forces, vectors, and footwear effects. Alas, after reading this book and feeling what running really is, you will rediscover and understand its simplicity . . . then you can throw the rest of the library away. --Dr. Mark Cucuzzella

This is the best resource on running biomechanics and injury prevention. The corrective exercises have become part of my training routine, improved my performance, and reduced my injuries. --Alan Webb, American record holder in the mile

The biggest challenge running coaches encounter isdiscovering the balance between maximizing workload while holding off injuries.Jay Dicharry presents years of knowledge and useful practical information in aformat that's understandable. I am certain Anatomyfor Runners is spot on because Jay has helped several of my athletes bothremain healthy as well as get back to championship form. --Jason Vigilante
