5.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrific book...I'm finally learning to run the right way! 11 août 2014
Par Brent Olsen - Publié sur
If you finally want to learn how to run properly, this is the book for you.

I am not an expert in Kinesiology (in fact I had to look up the word), and I was originally taught how to run by the U.S. Army (yes, in combat boots). So when I came back to running in my later years, I decided to do it the right way. My search for the proper running guide led me to this book.

The strength in this book lies in its manageable and digestible approach to explaining the proper ways to train and run. So many books cover the topic of running from such a scientific and clinical basis that they lose track of the fact that they have to be understood to be useful. A running tome is only useful if it has practical and thoughtful knowledge; not narrow interpretations by ‘authorities’ in ridiculously specialized fields.

If you are the .5% that waits with anxious anticipation for the next running article concerning electrolyte permeation of the semi-permeable membrane (I kinda made that topic up), then this may not be the book for you. But if you are looking for a book which is genuinely easy to read, enjoyable, and will positively affect your running performance, then buy this book today!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AWESOME illustrations, Love strength building and injury prevention exercises as well as the nutrition advice; highly recommend 16 août 2014
Par ALEJAS - Publié sur
Wow! I never thought that a book about running would call my attention, but this one did… I was totally surprised to learn that strength building exercises can help me to improve my running, as can eating certain types of foods. Who would have thought of finding recipes in a running book? Not me! To be honest, I did not pick up the book because I wanted to run. I was delighted that it had illustrations of strength building and injury prevention exercises.

A couple of years ago I sprained my ankle while playing soccer and was sent home with a cast and a sheet of paper with instructions of exercises that I could not figure out. With this book I can easily turn to the chart on page 378 to find a brief description of the injury that I suffered, as well as a list of exercises that can help me prevent/recover from this injury and I can then look at the illustrations of these exercises. I’ve also learned what exercises help to relieve my back of the stress of sitting on a chair for sustained periods of time (something I do at work every day). So, I love the illustrations that show how the exercise is done and also the charts that tell me which muscle groups are being worked out. Strength building is something that I had been wanting to do for some time now, but my biggest obstacle was that I tend to focus on one muscle group. Now that I have the book I use the chart as a guideline and it’s been of tremendous help.

Another thing that I like a lot about this book is that it talks about nutrients and food. For me this is interesting because oftentimes I feel weak after my workouts and when this happens I don’t feel like exercising anymore. I know that I am lacking one or more nutrients, but even my doctor has failed to give me good advice on this. So, the nutrition advice and recipes contained in this book come in very handy for me.

Third, I love that there’s a chart with schedules to follow. Plainly stated, I am not a planner. If the plan is given to me, I will carry it out. But if you ask me to plan my routine, be it running or any other kind of exercise, I might find it easier to skip the whole thing altogether. So, I could not be more grateful that the authors of this book have done all the planning for me!

Lastly, I was one of those people who think that running ruins your knees and creates all sorts of foot problems. But after about a week of reading this book, I am ready to reconsider my previous position on running. As a matter of fact, I am excited about it! This coming October I will be participating in my first 5K marathon and I am looking forward to it.

Build Your Running Body has helped me to understand that running is much more than putting on my tennis shoes and moving my legs. It’s a total workout that involves many muscles of the body as well as the mind. On my last visit to Barnes and Noble I browsed through other running books and I can honestly say that this one is the best. The book is worth it and I totally recommend it!

About the Authors

An extract from the

Maybe you like the cover and wanted to see if there were more photos inside-there are,
about four hundreds of them,comprising the most comprehensive photo instruction guide
for workouts,exercises,and drills available in a running book.

Whether you're a beginner looking to train for the first time or an experienced runner
hoping to improve a 5K or a marathon PR,Build Your Running Body's unique training
will help carry you to your goal.

...we all bring a slightly different body type,exercise history,and performance goal
to our training.So instead of being asked to follow a generic prescription for
mileage and'll build your fitness from the ground up,learning to
target the individual components of your running body-your muscles,connective tissue,
cardiovascular system,hormones and more-and to focus on those components that are
most relevant to your goals.

Build Your Running Body will take you on an amazing journey through your running body.
You'll begin with the microscopic fibers that comprise your running muscles,and then
you'll tour every other running-related component of your body-traveling along the
60,000-mile superhighway of your body's blood vessels-before finally concluding
your trip in the incorporeal mission control center that resides in your brain.
You'll learn exactly how each component of your running body contributes to your
running,and you'll be shown how to train those components on three different levels:

First,you'll break down each separate component into its individual parts(e.g.,
your heart and blood vessels as parts of your cardiovascular system),and you'll
learn specific training to target those parts in the "Training Recommendations"
sections that appear in each chapter.

Next,you'll find a photo instruction section at the end of every component chapter
that offers a full array of training for the components as a whole(or lets you
know where in the book to find the relevant workouts).

Finally,you'll be advised on integrating training for all your components into
twelve week programs,with Chapter 15 offering sample training schedules for all
levels of runners(beginner,intermediate,and advanced).

Part One of the book offers chapters on motivation,running's history...running gear,
and running vocabulary-this last chapter supplemented by an appendix glossary
defining more than 250 running terms.

Part Three includes a whole chapter devoted to injury prevention,and a corresponding
table in the back of the book that lists exercise-specific prevention and
rehabilitation guidance for more than forty common running injuries.

Part Four offers six chapters on diet and nutrition.

Part Five gets down to the nitty-gritty,detailing proper race preparation and tactics
for the competitive runners among us.

The book also includes pace tables for every conceivable run,calorie-burn charts
for most workouts,and expert discussion throughout on topics from running fads to
PEDs (performance-enhancing drugs) to sneaky sugars that manufacturers slip into
your food.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing Book! 2 août 2014
Par Joe - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I'm an avid reader of Pete Magill's "Running Times" articles so when I found out that he was writing an entire book I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! As a newer runner (2 years) who just recently took up the sport, I am looking for all the information I can get and who better to get this from then somebody like Pete Magill. His accomplishments and reputation speak for themselves. This book has it all with everything from the mental side of running to the workouts and training philosophies and finally diet and nutrition. I've read a ton of running books from some of the best in the business and Pete has indeed captured it all here and then some!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Encyclopedic... 1 août 2014
Par JAG - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
First let me say how excited I was when I heard Peter Magill had a book coming, I pre-ordered immediately as I really wanted to "Build my running body" for the upcoming season. Pete's American Record Masters 5K is an amazing accomplishment and his columns in Running Times meld experience, wit, and science into the best columns I have read. His focus on muscle fibers types and their relevancy really form a foundation for training and recovery. Perhaps my high expectations have led to my lackluster reaction to this book. It is like an encyclopedia trying to cover every topic possible from running history to muscle fibers to making meals. It is not focused on just "Building your running body" in the way that I envisioned. It has the feel of a book that is written by committee with multiple authors and editors each wanting to add more but then being constrained by page numbers. While I was waiting for this to come out, I purchased another book for focused strength training for runners that met my needs, but that is it's sole focus. I think the current book could have been broken into three (strength training, nutrition, training-racing).That being said, as noted, my reaction may be due to what I hoped for-a focused book-versus what this delivered-an encyclopedic effort. For others, I think its worth a look, you can always return to amazon if you don't like.
