The two-point start is a staple of sprint training. You will do a two-point start in many forms: as part of the warm-up, repeats, hills, etc. While it is less explosive than the three-point or block start, it will allow you to train using the proper technique even in a fatigued state. In this chapter, Coach Harnden shares the important technical elements of the two-point start and the practice progression he uses with his athletes. He also shares common errors and how to correct them.
