The Physics of the 100 meter dash


The Mechanics of Sprints

  • Body Position

    • Arms

    • Legs

    • Head

  • Inertia

  • Speed and Acceleration


The 100M In Action


Body Mechanics

  • Head

    • The head should stay level with the jaw at a forward constant position during the duration of the race.


Body Mechanics

  • Arms

    • While running keep your arms at a 90 degree angle to your elbow and let them naturally flow. Your arms swing as a counter to the forward movement produced by your legs while running.

    • Creating this movement is due the flexibility of the runners shoulder gridle


Body Mechanics

  • Legs

    • Legs trust downward and back at 50-55 degrees

    • Legs should be in flexion to reduce the inertia and make forward movement easier

    • The lifted leg should never reach a horizontal position while running


What Not To Do


Inertia

  • At the starting point of the race, Inertia is working against the runner.

  • In order to speed up the runner must make short and quick strides to gain speed.

  • As the runner speeds up, their strides become longer to cover a farther distance.
