    Out of curiosity, has anyone ever heard of this, tried it, or know anything about it?

      Well just a guess..but maybe its human's evolution as running hunters and that if we run a certain way...like our old great great great great grandparents did..we could run very efficiently for a very long time. I wonder if this is sort of related to chi running. Maybe chi means evolution in some ancient now dead language and it was dug up for use with Tai chi and chi running to denote energy. Did I mention that I never heard of this?????
      Run like you are on fire! 5K goal 24:00 or less (PR 24:34) 10K goal 50:00 or less (PR 52:45) HM goal 1:55:00 or less (PR 2:03:02) Marathon Goal...Less than my PR (PR 4:33:23)
        Evolution is way over-rated. Ask any monkey.

          Or maybe dug up to sell DVDs? I don't know much about it but it sounds like the same thing as Chi Running, Pose Method, barefoot running, etc. Basically, landing on the forefoot instead of midfoot/heel.

            The reason why I ask this is because another forum which I read (geared mored towards triathlons, but hey), the owner/founder/whatever you call him posts on occasion. He was talking about his findings and how they relate to his method, and dispensing this advice (most of which I disagree with, or have seen studies to the contrary). I asked him if there studies available that discuss his findings, and his response was that, while he owns a sports lab and conducts tests, he doesn't have any peer-reviewed materials related to his findings. So, does that scream snake-oil, or am I just being too pessimistic?
