is there any drawback to having low push off angles at the start?
Wow this is terrible, but that’s what happens when some dumb a** tells you to stay low/don’t pop up. Coaches and athletes have the misconception that athletes need to stay low which is wrong. Athletes need to start low and gradually rise. Thanks to this site I have learned that lesson 🙂
Does seem to affect the step length progression as well.
Not to mention how off balance he is…You can’t go 100mph if you don’t shift out of 1st gear…Athletes myself included will make the mistake of holding themselves in 1st gear while thinking we are accelerating haha what a mistake.
