i'm not a big fan of most form-running drills, but this video had me cracking up.. I'm sure these drills can be effective, for sure, but my somewhat juvenile humor had me cracking up in this vid.

SiHunt has alot of great videos btw.

I hate that crap as well, looks gay :P

but what's with the music? the bell made it too serious i had to laugh

the only one i do is a slow sprint where i try to focus on the dorsiflexing of the foot and getting the kness up

i made a video of my form i'll put it up soon, i might wanna do a different one

dunno if it looks gay or not, but ive seen changes in running form just from the drills done properly + drills taken into a run + 'technical runs'.....combine that with actual muscle strenghtening/preparation for your event and you will get some nice form
re-evaluate, daniel-san, re-evaluate

ya i've found those technical drills to be beneficial as well, when i do very light sprints while focusing on pulling the ground, my sprint technique changes for the better, get more glute/hip extension.
