You need work on acceleration. Do more Acc. Dev ?
ok thanks what would kind of drills would you recomend for me to get better acceleration?
another question when coming out the blocks what should you take short quick steps or long strides?
You can do stuff such as:
10m,20m,30m runs to work on your acceleration. Start with a 3-pt stance or block if you want. Do explosive lifting or plyometrics because they will help your acceleration phase as well.
As for coming out from the block, i’m not sure but maybe someone else can answer that for you?
