The first running book by a leading pioneering running doctor and athlete, creator of the Air Force’s Efficient Running program–the result of more than three decades of study, practice, and science that shows us in clearly illustrated and accessible text how easy it is to run efficiently and injury-free, whether you’re in your twenties, sixties, or seventies–for beginning runners and experienced marathoners.
In Run for Your Life, Dr. Mark Cucuzzella explains the simple mechanics of how our bodies have evolved and adapted to run. Despite our natural ability and our human need to run, each year more than half of all runners suffer injuries. Pain and discouragement inevitably follow. Cucuzzella’s book outlines the proven, practical techniques to avoid injury and reach the goal of personal fitness and overall health.
His book–the first running book to be written by a professor of medicine with the credibility of the Air Force behind him–gives us a straightforward, easy-to-follow look at the anatomy, biomechanics, nutrition, and/or clinical medicine with clear drawings and black-and-white photographs. The book provides illustrated exercises designed to teach healthy running, along with simple progressions, a weekly/monthly schedule detailing common mistakes, and cautions that allow the reader to tailor the training regime to individual needs and abilities. With an annotated list of videos and other innovative, book-Internet links.
The proceeds from RUN FOR YOUR LIFE will go to support Mark Cucuzzella’s community work through his non-profit organization, Eastern Area Health Education Center/Freedoms Run. Learn more here: http://freedomsrun.org/CommunityGrant.aspx
Barefoot Science is an intelligent solution to an age-old problem that has never been solved by traditional orthotics. Pain and dysfunction is caused by muscle weakness, so it follows that strengthening is the path to wellness.
The standard treatment for foot and joint pain is orthotics or device loaded shoes which effectively brace the foot, preventing movement. However, we believe this is not the solution. Through rehabilitation and strengthening work, Barefoot Science builds a better foundation for pain free movement.
Architects know that arches lend strength. The arch in our feet works similarly, absorbing pressure and supporting our weight. An increased arch height results in a more even weight distribution across the joints of the foot, decreasing tension on the plantar fascia. Barefoot Science works to build arch strength by stimulating the muscles in the foot, building strength over a short period of time.
Our feet were designed to be bare. Bare feet feel the ground better and can react quickly to changes on the ground. Barefoot Science stimulates the body’s innate proprioception, enabling you to better sense your feet, and improving balance and stability.
With its’ dome-shaped insole, Barefoot Science begins by progressively stimulating receptors in the soles of the feet and building new muscle. While it is doing this, it is also creating new neural pathways to help your body’s natural sense of alignment and balance. Each time a new insert is placed into the dome, forcing your foot to work harder. The end result is a proven increase in arch strength and height, balance, foot stability, and ultimately, a stronger kinetic chain.
