I've never had a problem with it. In fact, IMO most athletes lean too far forward in the blocks, have most of their weight on their hands, and don't have any pressure on the pedals prior to their reaction to the gun.
wouldnt this take away from the idea that weight should be placed on the hands so when their lifted at the start, the body will fall forward, horizontally, proceeding to the drive phase?
