Here is the problem with "over thinking sprinting". Once you get an athlete to start thinking about a lot of the mechanics of sprinting, he or she is going to become too mechanical or robotic with their running. So, instead of being fluid and "natural" they loose the ability to be efficient and powerful with their running.
I worked with a runner who was given lots of key phrases and drills that are suggested by the "experts" only to find him struggling with his turnover and speed. I had him try and forget those instructions, and, instead, had him run relaxed and "light", keeping his CG over his hips and "driving" his body forward. I also had him do short grass hill runs where the incline was steep enough that he had to drive forward and not pull and sit trying to go up the incline.
Once he got those concepts figured out, his form and running style become much less strained and more efficient.
I am not a fan of the "pawing " that seems to continue from when Loren Seagrave first introduced it, as I feel that method of running defeats the purpose of getting a proper CG position and driving the body forward. Instead I see the pawing method as one where sprinters end up "sitting" or "squatting" as they try to increase their speed.
Running tall, pushing the body forward, making quick contact onto and off the ground is a more natural method of sprinting and takes a lot less thinking to accomplish.
