Neuromuscular imbalances and sprinting

Abstract

Athletic coaching can involve observation of a motor
control task and then proposing guidance to an athlete
about how the task performance can be developed.
Coaches can identify the technique elements that seem
to hinder performance and then provide instruction.
Recently, a variety of training methods were proposed to enhance sprint performance, however a number of authors have identified these methods as characterised by low scientific evaluation or support (Brown & Vescovi, 2012; Jones, Bezodis, & Thompson, 2009). This article will outline a scientifically robust neuromuscular theory
underlying poor movement techniques that may be visible when
coaches observe sprint performance. The goal of this article is to inform the sprint coach of a method to identify and correct suboptimal biomechanics to enhance athletic performance.
