Welcome to Physio Tullamore and our blog on sprint start technique. Have a look at Olympic athlete Michael Johnson highlighting some of the key things we look for with sprinting start technique.

Key Take Home Messages:

1. Get into your stance quickly with minimal energy expenditure.

2. Form a deep forward angle with your front shin.

3. Position your weight forward onto your front arm, which should be straight up and down.

4. Cock your opposite arm back so it is at your hip and not up in the air.

5. Explode forward and drive with your arms and legs – try not to start running to soon!
