Not as complete as the book, but for the information covered it is better than the book. What makes it better is that Danny is in your ear guiding you through the fundamentals.
Emphasis and perspective
How to improve posture...
This book is an indispensable adjunct to the book and DVD. I have attended both the Level One and Level Two workshops conducted by Danny... This
If it was an audio of the actual book & not a audio lecture.
I don't know. The info is good but it just isn't the book as it appears to be.
Yes as his work is good, I'd just be more careful to see what I'm buying.
the book wasn't read it was just Danny doing a seminar speech
actually read the dang book
His tone was patronizing he delayed a lot
This book was loaned to me by my chiropractor and I decided to buy it outright so that I would always have it as part of my library. It is one of those books you will want to revisit many times to ensure proper form not just in running, but also in life.
There are multiple exercises and form checking tasks in the book that will help you navigate life the pain associated with running, walking, relating. This smashes the old adage, "no pain, no gain" with a common sense approach to posture.
The whole book.
I bought this book on a whim after once again hurting myself prepping for an obstacle course race. The only damage to train through my injury but I managed to improve my running pace altogether. I am a personal trainer who owns a studio in at the time was training 25 other people for the obstacle course race. Inc. the Chi running skills into the coaching. We had six of our runners place in the top 10 of their age category. To second-place finishes and won first place out of those groups as well. The concept of this book had a lot to do with their performance. This running technique is amazing and I genuinely wish I would've found it when I started training 18 years ago.
Chi Running is a practice. It takes commitment and time. This audiobook helps you take the basics and do them while you listen. It is much easier than trying to read form a book and then doing the practice. You can have the creator right in our ear. My running has improved significantly and my soreness is next to none. I just ran my third half marathon and had minimal soreness.
Basically just a guided walk through of running form with a guy who is trying to be zen. I read or listen to an running book every year and this ranks among the lowest of take away info
Say something about yourself!
For 2 bucks it's ok. But prepare for ads at the beginning and end. I certainly won't do a 30 min audio again.It's obviously to promote other revenue streams.
Less repetition of the same idea. He states something but then alters it only slightly 14 times. More about Chi, or the mental part of running.
Not yet, but probably not going to run to get another soon.
If you're already a runner, and have worked on your posture while running, this is not the book for you. If you are in the medical field and know anatomy, this isn't the book for you either. (refers to the hamstrings as the back of the quadriceps etc) Truthfully he could have sated everything in 20 minutes. But to be redundant, he crammed those 20 minutes into hours of listening. I was hoping for a way to meditate (or something close) while running.
