Asafa Powell Sprinting Phases in Slowmo
  • May 16th, 2009

Take a look at this. A breakdown of sprinting phases in slowmo. You could see the steps, arm swing, stepping, technique, to the foot striking in clarity from start to finish.

I’m sure it will be helpful to coaches and athletes alike. Despite the textbook sprinting manual says otherwise, Asafa has his own unique style. Each athlete is different in terms of body segments length and muscles location, which leads to varying running style. For example Justin Gatlin is a long strider, Micheal Johnson runs with a stiff back, such as that.

Well I recall reading Charlie Francis’s Training System book that he corrected his athlete idiosyncrasy, but the athlete performances just got worse after that. The bottomline if the athlete is doing well, and if the idiosyncrasy does not affect performance, don’t tamper with it.

Enjoy the vid below.
