EP.15 - How to Run Faster. The Most Important Factor (Drills Included)
Podcast (11 Minutes) - What is the ONE THING to be focusing on when coaching sprinting/acceleration mechanics? While track athletes place a heavy emphasis on the skill of running and focus plenty of their training time on the technical components of good sprinting and running mechanics it is athletes on either end of the spectrum (team sport athletes and recreational runners) who are often desperately in need of putting more attention and focus on the biomechanics and technical details of running more efficiently. Not only does better running technique increase acceleration power and top speed, it also reduces injury risk by reducing braking forces and joint stress.
