How to use starting blocks
« on: September 28, 2014, 06:52:59 am »
I was watching this interesting video from, love the materials they have on that site regarding speed training and this one talks about setting the blocks and coming out of the blocks and it shows a video fo asafa powell's start with the famous 'toe drag', which shows that he has a very low heel recovery that his toe drags and that's as low as a heel recovery you can get, no wonder he has a great start, what a beast.

Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm
