The Double Arm Shift
December 5, 2010Posted by on
The double-arm shift is a forgotten hurdling technique. Instead of extending one’s lead arm as the trail arm hangs back during hurdle clearance, the double-arm shift involves pushing both arms forward!
To learn more of Rodney Milburn and this classic hurdling style, read McGill’s Rodney Milburn: “The Double Armed Man” feature.
Note: Since the last two entries were about football, I just have to write an honest-to-goodness athletics digest. After all, this is a track blog!
