At the recent CrossFit Tour stop in Big Sky, Mont., Dr. Nicholas Romanov worked with Bret Ellis to improve his running form. In Part 3, the Pose Method creator teaches the owner and head trainer at CrossFit Rabid in Rainbow City, Ala., about cadence.
Unfortunately, Ellis is having a hard time, and his effort his visible.
“You’re still trying to look a certain position ’cause you haven’t quite felt it yet,” observes CrossFit Games General Manager Justin Bergh. “You feel it at a low speed.”
Romanov has Ellis do a one-legged-running drill. Afterward, Ellis is still kicking his feet behind him.
“Bret, you’re putting effort over there. There is no effort,” Romanov explains. “It’s not behind; it’s under the hip.”
He adds: “Pose should be untouchable, you know. You have to stay in pose, no matter what.”
