The Pose Method® has become a standard part of the U.S. Army‘s core training regimen. Hundreds of servicemen and women, responsible for the physical training and rehabilitation plans for Soldiers who are injured in Basic Combat Training, are Pose Method® Certified Technique Specialists.
“The injury rates (for Soldiers) from overuse alone are substantial. We prevent the majority of them just by teaching Soldiers to run…”

Aside from the qualitative results from runners adopting Pose, its benefits have also been proven scientifically. One such study published in 2004 by “Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise,” found that the Pose Method® reduces stress on the knees by 53%. While this is just one of many studies, it is significant because the knee is, arguably, the most frequent site of injury among runners.
