Preparing our foot to strike the ground is often overlooked in speed development. Ground contact can enhance or be detrimental to our sprinting performance!
Here are some tips to consider when training:
- Toes up
- Heels stay a credit card width off the ground
- Foot strikes directly underneath the hips
- Spend as little time in contact with the ground as possible
Coach CJ does a great job in this video demonstrating just a few of the drills we use here at TTR Performance to work on ground preparation. Repetition is the key when it comes to speed training. Look to enhance your ability to perform each drill before moving on to the next.
