A lot of track athletes want to improve their block starts so they can have faster times in their event.  In order to have faster block starts you will not only need to work on your starting block position but you’ll need to improve your acceleration out of the blocks.  To do this you must practice setting the blocks up so that your body is in the correct starting position, and you will also need to develop the energy components (strength, speed, and power) necessary for faster acceleration.
