Running Starters

Drill description: Start jogging in a straight line and on the coach's signal, drop to the ground in a simulated starting position as if you were in the blocks. Only stay in this position for a second and immediately spring out of it and start to sprint about 20 yards. After, resume a slow jog and repeat the drill on the coach's signal. Don't worry too much about your form when you hit the ground and assume a starting position. That is not what is important here. However, make sure that the hands touch the ground at the same time on the signal.
