Science of Running goes further than any other running book to interrogate the muscle groups and bodily systems involved in being an effective runner, and shows how to apply insights gained to train for optimal performance. The book examines the running motion of the body and exp...lains how to analyse your own running style and re-train your gait to prevent injury and increase efficiency. Clear and detailed CGI artworks demonstrate 30 key exercises targeting strength, flexibility, and recovery - each exercise annotated to reveal the muscle mechanics so you know you're getting it right. The book also explains the science behind your body's energy systems, including muscle metabolism, hydration, and nutrition, and shows how you can train to maximise energy conversion. A series of integrated exercise and training programmes - from complete beginners, through 5k, 10k, half marathon and full marathon - bring everything together to help you plan a running regime that's right for you.
