MB Push + StartWhat is it? A great warm-up tool for getting the CNS firing and reminding the body how to produce a lot of force against the ground. The movement approximates the start for a sprint event. You can’t get as low as you do in the blocks, but it helps teach and reinforce how to produce great amounts of force as you are falling forward.
Why use it? See above, plus it’s fun!
Who should use it? Any athlete that is concerned about a “quick first step.”
If I were to coach myself based on my demonstration in the video, I clearly need to work on allowing myself to fall a fraction of a second longer and spend another fraction of a second extending through and taking advantage of the triple extension moment.
Overall, not too bad for a woman who had a baby exactly one-year ago tomorrow!
