OVERVIEW TO STARTS
Explosive Start Keys: Get to where you want to go...and FAST! This is FULL THROTTLE! Beginning with deep knee bend and with all of your weight over the pushing foot, explode 3-4 strides to full extension, using only the first 2-3 inches of your inside edges. Make sure to rotate your toes and knees outward to establish enough grip to support the thrust involved. Speed is distance per stride, so always reach full extension with each stride...even the first 3-4 pushes of an Explosive Start! Watch our step-by-step Forward Toe Start video to the right.

STRONGER STANCE - It is really important during your stops to ensure that you stay balanced to make the quickest possible stop. We would really like to see you work on keeping your feet shoulder width apart and using the heel to toe relationship.
