Praise for Jay Dicharry
"Jay Dicharry integrates the science of how the body moves with his extensive knowledge of runners and their problems to present an in-depth guide to understanding and improving your mechanics, complete with numerous specific and unique exercises which will make you a better runner." -- Jonathan Beverly, author of Run Strong, Stay Hungry and Your Best Stride
"Jay Dicharry is one of the country's foremost experts when it comes to understanding how to properly build strength and improve efficiency for runners. Running Rewired is a definitive handbook to a stronger, fitter, faster you!" -- Brian Metzler, Editor, MotivRunning.com, Founding Editor, Trail Runner, and coauthor, Run Like a Champion
"Jay is, simply put, the best. His program prepared me for success in my training for the Rio Olympics. I was able to come back from an injury in early 2015, to train at a greater consistency and intensity than ever before. I attribute that comeback, my ability to transition smoothly to running, and then sustain the hardest training of my life, to work with Jay." -- Kate Grace, Olympic middle-distance runner
"I would not have been able to reach peak performance in 2016 Olympic Trials and Olympics had it not been for the foundational work with Jay. Period." -- Kate Grace, Olympic middle-distance runner
"I cannot overstate the impact Jay has had on my running career." -- Kate Grace, Olympic middle-distance runner
"I have had the opportunity to work closely with Jay Dicharry since 2013. We first met as I was recovering from a lower leg stress fracture. With Jay's detailed guidance, enthusiasm for strength training, and methodical plan I was able to go from unable to run to setting a course marathon PR at the Ironman World Championships in 2013. Since that time Jay has helped me succeed in all areas of my triathlon training. I have had the opportunity to closely follow Jays strength program that has been tailored to the different parts of my training cycle. The things I enjoy most about Jay's strength program are that it is applicable to swim, bike, run, it is easy to follow, it allows for progression as I improve and it's time efficient." -- Linsey Corbin, professional triathlete and 5-time Ironman Champion
Praise for Anatomy for Runners by Jay Dicharry
"This is the best resource on running biomechanics and injury prevention. The corrective exercises have become part of my training routine, improved my performance, and reduced my injuries." --Alan Webb, American record holder in the mile (3:46.91)
"The biggest challenge running coaches encounter is discovering the balance between maximizing workload while holding off injuries. Jay Dicharry presents years of knowledge and useful practical information in a format that's understandable. I am certain Anatomy for Runners is spot-on, because Jay has helped several of my athletes both remain healthy and get back to championship form." --Jason Vigilante, renowned running coach
"Running is a simple sport, right? But why does almost everyone get hurt? As Jay discovers in this valuable guide, the reason is an amazingly complex mix of anatomy, strength, forces, vectors, and footwear effects. Alas, after reading this book and feeling what running really is, you will rediscover and understand its simplicity . . . then you can throw the rest of the library away." --Dr. Mark Cucuzzella, physician, National Masters runner

The drills, precision, and performance workout sections are excellent and laid out well. I only caught one discrepancy in the kettlebell swing about bracing the core. The tips section on that one contradicts the instruction.
The only thing left desired with this book is the option to order it spiral bound because it doesn’t lay flat. Annoying when referencing during the workouts. Experienced athletes can just list the movements, but newbies to gym work will need the reference. No biggie, easy and somewhat cheap to get it done at a local office store.
11 self-tests for joint mobility, posture stability, rotation, and alignment (these are great, but maybe better performed with an input-providing partner)
83 exercises to fix blocks, move with precision, build strength, and improve power (choosing one to use - eek!)
15 rewire workouts to amplify any training plan from 5K to ultramarathon (I love this, but it takes away from my already on the edge of potential injury current workouts)
In summary, I can't wait to read through this book again (and again) and hope to try some of its suggestions to improve my running skills, but the sheer volume of information is as awesome as it is overwhelming.
I'd highly recommend this book to all runners. If you are plagued with injuries because of running chances are you need to work on more strength training. This book is a great place to start. If you can find a trainer who also appreciates Jay's work and can help you implement a strength program, even better. Thanks for sharing this book with the world, Jay!
She's been a huge fan of this book. It's helped her better understand numerous pieces of her running. The photos and step-by-step instructions help form better habits and understand how to increase running performance.
It's a great reference that can be read cover-to-cover or browsed specifically for the areas you need help.
A great resource for anyone looking to improve their running performance.
