Article of the Month – Effective Acceleration

By Mike Caza 

Sprinting is a learned skill and in order to make an impact on the playing field, you have to be fast.  Effective acceleration relies on force application into the ground. In order to generate the greatest amount of force, you have to have 3 good postural habits:

1. Your legs have to swing vertically after pushoff to offset gravity and to be able to drive down and back. If your legs are low when sprinting, you cannot apply force effectively.

2. Your hands have to rotate upward to shoulder height to allow the opposite knee to come up to be able to drive down and back and applyforce

 

3. Keep head straight, shoulders square and back straight to enable energy transfer after pushoff.Image may contain: one or more people and people dancing

Another key to acceleration training at PSC is most of our drills are done over 10-20 yards since the most significant plays in team sports happen at these distances and we want to develop explosive velocity at these distances.
