Madonna’s 10km was approaching world record times until the controversial banning of the cone bra.
Yes, as suspected Pose running is pretty much just simply running whilst blasting your favorite Madonna Cd and wearing a cone bra. Itâ€™s actually pretty much all about the cone bra and itâ€™s aerodynamic properties. Not to mention the â€œfeel goodâ€ lift that knowing you are running in style can help you attain. Don’t own a cone bra you say? No problems, just follow the three easy steps below!
Bring two cones.
Bring a belt or some twine.
Attach the belt/twine to the cones, put the created â€œcone braâ„¢â€ on and place the ear buds of your newly loaded Ipod in your ears and simply run like you’re being chased by the paparazzi!
Pointy cones do work more effectively, but points (no pun intended) will be given for style
Well, in all seriousness! What we actually are going to focus on is:
-Learning to run whilst maintaining a solid midline and a slight forward lean.
-Pulling our feet off the ground using our hamstrings and glutes instead of pushing off the ground in long and labored strides predominantly using our quads and hip flexors.Â
-Landing on the balls of our feet with a slight touch of the heels directly underneath our torso instead of the more common heel strike action which generally accompanies our feet landing out front of the body effectively halting our momentum with every step.
-Breaking the 100m ice sprint recordâ€¦
It has been said that this is the most efficient way to run. Old heel striking habits wonâ€™t be easily forgotten in one session, but weâ€™ll give you some of the tools which will enable you to practice this on your own.
Do bring the cones though; I was serious about that part…

Pose running technique
In groups of 3:
8 min AMRAP
Athlete 1: Runs 200m
Athlete 2: Burpees
Athlete 2: Plank
Athlete 2 performs as many burpees as possible whilst Athlete 1 runs the 200m. The catch is that Athlete 2 can only perform burpees whilst the plank is held by athlete 3.
You team score is the amount of burpees performed over the 8 minute period.
