3 quick fixes to improve sprint speed #1/3

Positive shin angle.
This is the part that either makes you or breaks you in any horizontal sprint event. So pay close attention when training the sprint. A strong set up will lead to a strong finish. This will take time off your 40m, 100m or even 200m
The way Benchmarks likes to start this phase is by being in a positive shin angle.
What that basically means is making sure your shins are at about a 45 degrees angle with the ground.
Now, the reason is physics.
By having your shins in a positive angle you’re able to stab into the ground and propel yourself forward a lot faster and produce more force in the initial stages of acceleration.
We recommend practicing over a 10 meter distance with one of our coaches to perfect your shin angle. Practice makes perfect
