[quote author="utfootball4" date="1154579109"]i know some may disagree but the first 10m can be taken care in the weight room, if you are strong as hell ur chances of having a good start is much better.
I wholeheartedly agree…this is why throwers and weightlifters are often faster than sprinters for the first 10-15m. This is one of the reasons I work squats with my short sprinters so hard. Having said that, winning the race to 10m/yd doesn't necessarily correlate with winning the race to 40m/yd (and certainly not to 100m). If an athlete has poor mechanics, brute strength in the first couple strides can more than make up for it but after that point I don't think that brute strength will help you get out of the bad positions you might have put yourself in to.
In response to that I am stronger and faster than my teammates, but they can get out in the first 10m meters faster than me. I am a bigger guy and they are lighter/shorter. What would you say to that?
Also, during my start out of the blocks, I tend to come out like a speed skater having my legs go slightly out sideways instead of straight forward. My angles seem to be fine in the blocks. What is the best way to correct my form??
