Today's tip, agains comes from coach Will Collins who coaches high school, collegiate, and post collegiate athletes in his camp that he calls Fast University.
Collins' second tip continues with a focus on the start block technique and improving the overall time by efficiency in the blocks.
The tip focuses on sweeping the trigger hand and arms with the initial reaction. This maximizes force from the blocks and improves the drive phase.
