Acceleration is one of the key biomechanical principles to sprinting. Coach Chris Parno, through a PowerPoint presentation and on-track instruction, presents the best methods to assist sprinters who want to achieve their individual maximal velocity through a proper acceleration pattern. Sharing a rich resource of sport science research and his own observational and accumulated expertise, Parno shows many forms of sprint starting as well as how to accurately set an athlete’s blocks to achieve optimal acceleration, and ultimately, their best speed.
We are providing this drill to give you ideas on how to enhance your current practice drills. The idea is not to implement it exactly as is, but rather to tweak it to make it fit your system.
There is sound with the video, so please make sure that your sound is on.
