6. The “Set” Position
Raise your hips slowly to the “Set” position as shown in the Figure. Stop with your front leg bent to 90° and your back leg to 135° and wait for the starter’s gun.
When in the “Set” position, your arms should be perpendicular to the ground when viewed from the side.
Be careful to ensure your shoulders are not pointing too far downward in front of you, as this will increase the burden on them when you start running and prevent you from making a smooth start.
