I'm try to improve my blocks start but for some reason I'm finding it hard. I'm quite tall but I good with jumping and improving my weights. Is there any drills I can try to improve this?
First of all, only your reflex matters in improving block starts. I suggest doing as many starts as you can, and having someone time you with a stopwatch. Try to be faster in leaving the blocks. Being low initially helps in gaining speed, efficiently and swiftly leaving the blocks.
