					Starting Blocks help to run fast




You have to understand various technical aspects to become a successful
runner or a master. You have to know the basic use of starting blocks in
order to maximize the competence and understand the potential of a
runner. If you are a competitive runner, you must know the process to start
competition from starting blocks. At the backside of the first line, starting
block affixes into the trail and sprinters place their feet into them to get
ready for a race. They help runners to drive back powerfully in order to start
the race much faster. If the sprinter merely pushed off from the ground
level, then they can’t run as fast as it is possible with the starting blocks.



Place the starting blocks to allow you to arrange your feet into them with
your back knee and with your front foot in line as well as your hands just
after the preliminary line. Now you need to position your back foot into the
starting block so the initial nip on the bottom of your shoe will make contact
with the track. Consequently set the knee of the back leg in a 120-degree
angle. After that rest your front foot in the starting block and allow the first
spikes on the bottom of your shoe again getting in touch with the trail and
then put this knee in a 90-degree angle.

Once you have set up the correct position of your legs then hold up your
upper body portion with your fingertips. This entire body posture should be
exactly at the back of the starting line along with your arms which are
straightly down and shoulders width away from each other. You should
maintain your shoulders straight above your hands and you should not fold
your elbows. Your head should be in a straight line along with your back and
keep your upper body muscles in relaxing position while breathing slowly.




Take a deep breath and hold it, be ready and pay attention to hear the word
‘set’, lift your hips over your shoulders then push your feet powerfully
backside into the blocks. Pay attention to hear the starting gun, once you
hear it, act in response right away by breathing out and push yourself out
from the blocks with the help of your feet. At the time when you are
pushing off as a running step through your front foot, you should make use
of your arms to force and widen your straight body in a 45-degree angle as
of the ground. Immediately precede the subsequent running step with your
back leg as quick as you can able to do and take it up at the back the front
leg. Keep following it till you reach the final line and win the game.
