45° launch angle - stay low
powerful arm drive
violent push back
low knee drive forward
The start is the period when the body is at rest to the first step.
This is the ground contact period of the 1st step, leading to propulsion.
This is the ground contact period of the 2nd step, leading to propulsion
Phases of Acceleration
= Leg Power x Horizontal Direction of Force - Energy Leaks
Methods we use to develop LAUNCH POWER
Develop LEG POWER.
- Build Strength
- Single Leg Low Impulse Power (Full Spectrum Training)
- Speed Concentric Power
- Reactive Power (Helps with RFD)
Develop the Law of FLOW
Develop the Law of Direction.
- Teach how to develop integrated horizontal power
- With full hip extension
Teach skill of acceleration
Excessive Head Movement
Uncoordinated Arm Movements
Poor Leg Extension "Pop-up"
Ankle and Foot
