Running Myths and Realities

Original Title

Mythes et réalités sur la course à pied

Clear and precise answers for informed athletes.

There is so much contradictory information on all aspects of fitness and muscle training that it seems as if there are as many opinions as there are athletes! The authors of these books have simplified the task by putting together answers to 50 of the most widespread myths about conditioning, physical activity and body-building. The discussion of each myth is several pages long, with links to related subjects so the reader can find further information.

Does running really damage the knees? Is interval training necessary to improve performance? Is it true that the faster you run, the lighter you are? Can a marathoner benefit from weight training? Is running every day bad for you? Are minimalist running shoes better adapted to the body? See complete product information (French)
