Posture pictures: Running

This photo caught my eye (taken from "Chi Running", by Danny Dreyer, 2003, p110).  This is part of an exercise to help you feel "grounded" before a run. He seems to say that every time your foot hits the ground, this is the grounding stance you should feel. For comparison, I've included an image of what he recommends as the "Posture Stance" (second image below). Any thoughts/comments on his "Grounding Stance"?This photo caught my eye (taken from "Chi Running", by Danny Dreyer, 2003, p110).  This is part of an exercise to help you feel "grounded" before a run.

Argh!  Here's another one.  Now, in fairness to the author (whose book is extremely popular) he must be doing a great job of helping people reduce foot, knee, and leg strain.  It's interesting that the idea of this book is "getting back to that childhood way of running", and yet he encourages a tucked pelvis.

You definitely do not want to land on a locked out knee in the front, but that does not require tucking the pelvis. And there are many reasons to not tuck the pelvis - in addition to being damaging to the L5-S1 disc, especially with the additional impact of running, tucking also puts the gluteal muscles in a position where they cannot work very efficiently. It limits your ability to really propel yourself off the back leg. If you look up images of any competitive runners, they definitely do not tuck the pelvis. Also, I disagree about what Dreyer calls a childlike way of running; if you look at toddler running (or even walking), they also have their bottoms behind them and do not tuck their pelvises.
