|Subject: ||RE: Improving stride length of sprinter|
Thank you for spending the time to help guys I really appreciate it.
I have the guys in warm ups doing lunges. We also have a short steep hill in which we train on every other day in the early season by bounding, sprints, and high knee drills. We sometimes do overspeed drills down a gentle grade on grass.
I was also worried about him trying to lengthen his stride for the reasons you guys have mentioned. I feel like if I can get it to happen naturally that would be best.
I like the ideas about arm movements. I've not tried that yet with him. Also, I will work on getting him lower in te power position with a good knee drive.
I had five athletes in Indoor Nationals this past weekend. I'm always trying to find ways to get them to the next level. Good advice about trying to find the best guy locally to talk to. I've found this site to be a really good resource in the past and know when I'm receiving great advice so it works for me. Thank you guys!
