Featuring legendary sprint coach Tom Tellez, Block Starts and Acceleration Mechanics presents an overview of the starting and acceleration mechanics that have made Tellez's Santa Monica Track Club the best sprint group in the world for over a decade. The DVD details the factors that sprint coaches should look for in setting up the starting blocks, the optimal "set" position for an athlete, and what an athlete should do during the acceleration phase of the sprint to maximize performance.

Among the topics covered:
  • Coming out of the blocks
  • Ideal leg angles in the blocks
  • Acceleration
  • Power vs. speed
  • Arm stroke
