It is not uncommon to watch television and see a runner who has been injured because he or she has not been able to control his or her movements during a sprint race. Effective training with a coach is essential to avoid such accidents.
The rules of sprinting
There is a chart to follow when sprinting or racing against the clock. We can find the short distance race of 400 meters, with or without hurdles, we are talking about competition, not sports tests in high schools. It doesn't matter if you plan to run a marathon or a few laps in a stadium near your home. Proper technique is designed to increase the efficiency of the session and prevent injury. Developing proper running technique in track and field is the key to preparing athletes for competition at any distance. Short and long-distance running techniques have several functions. Given the length of the segment, the athlete simply cannot make a mistake. Each nuance can lead an athlete to victory or leave them without a medal.
The right postures for running
For the hands, they should move back and forth along the body. Then you must always keep your arms at the center line of the body. It is also necessary to control the rotation of the hands in relation to the shoulders as well as the movements of the legs which will have to agree with the speed of the runner. The shoulders should be relaxed. There is no need to adjust the hands to form a point, free your fingers and let your hands follow the direction of the wind. For the body, it should be tense with just a slight bend to the front. The position of the shoulder blades should be open, otherwise the oxygen will not enter and you will have difficulty controlling your breath. The gaze will freeze in front of you, without ever lowering its head otherwise you will have a pain in the neck. And the feet will follow the footwork you are doing depending on the speed you want to achieve, don't think too much, lift your legs and go. There are several options for placing your foot in the running process.
You can gain an advantage during the event if you are focused and if you arch your back a little to get the start, you will adjust your position afterwards.
