i thought dan used the piston action?? im sure some of dan runners did.
Dan's a 'piston guy.' He believes in big complete pushes. John Smith is the one who teaches the cyclic action at the start. Despite this, most (all?) of his runners seem to have relatively low heel recovery during acceleration. In fact, I can't really think of any elite runners who are truly cyclic (as is seen at maxV) during the acceleration.
which one do u teach?? with the piston action i have seen some runners having a hard time with knee lifts when using this action
