Sprint Training: Walking Sled Pull Drills
This walking sled pull drill teaches proper drive phase sprint mechanics at the beginning level. The athlete should lean forward and feel the tension of the pulley of the sled. Teach the athlete to keep the knee up, the heel up, and the toe up at all times, creating a straight line from the top of their head through the back foot. A common problem that young athletes will have is the want to lean over and be broken at the waist. Teach them to engage the core and keep the straight line at all times.
