    @TheSpeedyDude I don’t dispute that and my first comment was notto be taken literally. By saying ‘arms at 90 degrees’ you merely provide guidance on arm position, as opposed to flapping them around like Woody from Toy story. However, arms should not stray too far from 90 degrees like Powell’s in the video, if you notice his arms (upper) doesn’t complete a full stroke because of straying too far from 90. Keeping arms exatly at 90 is impossible. I’m sure he would run better in a race though

    @coondous Have not studied sports at any university level, I have however spent over 10 yrs studying sprinting specifically, and from this know a few things more than you… For example.. the body is not a machine, therefore perfect angles do not work, the arms are thrown down, extending the forearm to gain more power from the triceps as the entire arm bounces back up. Falling beneath 90 degrees on the front stage of arm drive allows for a rotational force to increase also 🙂

    @TheSpeedyDude I’m guessing you’re quite a young lad aren’t you who has studied sports at GCSE level or college and is faster than average. Therefore you believe you know everything about everything and if no-one agrees with you then they are wrong. Met a lot like you before, one day you’ll realise that you ain’t that fast and you don’t know much, if you don’t realise it then you’ve lived a misleaded life.

    @coondous Silly statement, I know a lot more about sprinting than you ever will. Powell does have a few issues with his running technique, but it is not arm angles…

  5. coondous says:

    @TheSpeedyDude Why challenge on something you know little about?

  6. TheSpeedyDude says:

    @coondous your a douche, watch Gay and Bolt, do their arms stay at 90 degrees??

    @hayleyandco This isn’t competition – why waste your legs? Do you even run track?

    You do A LOT of starts in trainers, especially off-season and beginning of season. Spikes are very hard on your body (mainly calves). You can’t just wear ’em all day. This is some stupid promo thing I’m assuming Powell agreed to do for whatever show this was for – he has more important things to wear spikes for.

    @yomamallama1022 maybe if he got his arms right he would be the 2nd fastest in the world, duh! You cannot deny my advice

  9. yomamallama1022 says:
