Fundamentals Of Sprinting Technique

In the world of sprinting, our ability to sprint is limited most by how we apply force to the ground more so than how much force we put into the ground. Smashing the ground with your foot moving forward or out to the side is less effective than producing less force that you’re better able to apply into the ground in the proper vector. Because biomechanics and sprinting technique do play a pivotal role in whether we stay healthy and run faster or stay injured and run slow, it is important that we all have a fundamental, GED level understanding...

Improve Your Acceleration Biomechanics | Sprinting Technique

Most of us understand that high performing sprinters do certain things differently than slower sprinters, but determining what it is that constitutes these differences can at times appear elusive. Once you identify the proper way to sprint, you must then go about implementing this proper technique into your sprint training program. Previously we’ve discussed how the best sprinters exhibit a hammer-like, whip from the hip action of the leg in their sprinting technique, which is especially visible from mid-acceleration and into upright sprinting. The idea is that by throwing the leg to the front side in a certain way, we...
