I'm Morris Brossette, and this is how to stop over-striding when sprinting. To stop over-striding in sprinting we actually start this during the warm up phase with specific drills. We do these specific drills because it hones in and really drives in the correct movement and motor pattern of where your hips should flex and where you land during the strike. Common mistake is people try to run upright and they reach forward when they sprint and when they run. What I want you to actually do is lean forward from your ankle, and then as you lift your knee, all you're doing is preventing a fall, and that is a run, and that is a sprint. Okay, the second thing we're gonna work on is a high skip. Again, we don't want to over-stride, so by drilling this in in the warm up phase, we're creating the proper movement pattern. It's a lifting of the knee from the hip while simultaneously keeping your foot underneath your hip with the forward lean at the ankle. The third drill we're gonna work on is the high knee. You can actually do this stationary where you're running in place and we lift. Now, when I want to move this and integrate this into a movement, I do it here, and then I simply lean forward from my ankle, and that takes me into the forward movement of a run. So all I would do is progress that into the actual run stride.
