Book and DVD Review: Chi Walk to Run - Fitness for Life!
There are lots different ways to 'get in to' Chi walking and running. I've studied this book and DVD set tonight, as I have a friend who wants to transition from walking her dog in to going for a run.
The DVD is full if really helpful posture checks and visual demonstrations. It reiterates lots of key concepts from the Chi Walking and Chi running materials. Ideas to remind you about key concepts on posture such as 'Sit up in your chair' and the 'C shape' really do help reinforce the book. There is advise I would suggest probably all walkers and runners could do with, such as how to reduce injury risk from toe off. Examples and explanation of good arm swing are also very useful. If you are a visual person, I'd really suggest using a DVD such as this alongside the books if you are thinking about learning Chi Walking or Running.
Personally I could loose the pan pipes.
The book looks brief, but don't be fooled. It's absolutely packed with condensed lists of pointers, tips, and of course training ideas. I would strongly suggest reading the chapters from the Chi Running and Chi Walking books that are cross referenced if you can do this. I view this book as a really helpful summary of the key messages in the Chi Walking and Chi Running materials.
