Anyway, I know sprinting mechanics get get very very complicated, so I just have a few questions about the basics if you all don't mind.
Simply, could you explain these terms/concepts:
Horizontal vs Vertical forces-
Arm swing-how far back or don't even worry and let it be natural?
Knee height- No higher than waist or don't even think about it?
How far and high does your foot go back? Under hips, etc.
When I was trying some sprinting I tried out different techniques and I just want to make sure I don't pick up any bad habits. Sometimes it felt like my feet were on the ground too long or like they were stomping. Sometimes it would be like my knees were moving up and down quickly but I didn't feel like I was going forward very fast.
I also found this site, and wanted to see what you all thought of the advice.
EDIT: Phoenix's site gave me some insight: https://www.regenerationlab.com/archives/000054.php#000054
I never wanted to think too much about my running form, but I feel like there is something wrong with my form that's holding me back. I don't know whether it's my knees going too high and straight up or my legs not coming back far enough. If anyone has any general guidelines, that'd help. Sorry if this sounds really stupid.
