    What are some of the key and easily observed indicators of over striding in an sprinter? I.e- foot placement in front of body or not under center, perhaps back side mechanic's issues.

    Re: Indoor Training Plan - Please critique?

    I agree about the angles at take off. I believe you will shave off time just by improving the push phase and starting angle

    Re: optimal angle for for thigh

    Thanks Bold for making light work of a well-thought out question. I just remember a thread that spoke of how the hip height can be impacted once the height of the thigh goes past an optimal point.

    optimal angle for for thigh

    What is considered, if it exists, an ideal thigh angle during max v in relation to the ground? I reckon that it would be impossible for a sprinter to focus or even deliberately achieve this angle. Of...

    Re: how many steps

    So how many strides do elite level female athletes average by 10 & 20 meters. Would the females benefit from the same adjustments in the beginning of the race?
  6. Re: When is a good sprint spike bad for an athlete

    Only one of the three from the sample group played a fall or winter sport. The other two focused on lifting during the winter. As stated in the initial post, they all have a minimum of 3-4 years of...

    So eliminate the boys then buy new shoes? LOL.... I get what you're saying though. Not sure how I would measure this however. Thanks for everyone's input.
  8. Re: When is a good sprint spike bad for an athlete

    They all had last year's version of Nike Jah Fly, the $100+ version, full plate. Can you talk more about the restrictiveness of a shoe? They said it forces them to stay on ball of foot so I thought...
  9. Re: When is a good sprint spike bad for an athlete

    Judging by your facetious response Bold, this may not be worth firing up the synapses. So would shoe selection not be an issue for an advanced athlete; they just buy what they like and not be...

    I understand that this is probably not an ideal thread but I am hoping to understand this a bit more. Is it possible that this sort of plate might expose a strength defficiency in the calf, achilles,...
  12. When is a good sprint spike bad for an athlete

    This last season was quite an enigma for me as a coach. This is the first year I have ever had an athlete, my top three to be exact, to take such a large step back. All three are different ages...

    how many steps

    I notice that most elite level sprinters take about 44-46 strides (male) and 46-47 (females). this is a very vague question with thousands of variables. But lets say you have a HS girls who sprints...

    Re: Transition Phase (Acc. to MaxV)

    I agree RB. The hammering is most effective in the drive phase but most advanced sprinters have learned to do this very efficiently. If you watch a 100m dash at normal video speed you wouldn't notice...
