    My coach would yell on the last lap, "Use your arms"! It did help. If you can move your arms faster, the legs will follow.
    One problem with this strategy is that it could cause athletes to become more tense. This might be more detrimental compared to the perceived gains? I think this is what mojo's better half is saying above too.

          arm drive important mainly during a drive phase, and for stability the rest of the way

                That wasn't my weakest part, but yeah depending upon how fast you are in that 2nd 100m of your 1st 200m. Because you do have that free zone (ATP) for about 4-6 seconds starting off, some runners don't know how to transition that onto the 2nd 100m, thus nothing left in the tank final 100m.

                      Most of the Jamaican runners that I associate with use their arms but it looks like they are skating. There is less knee lift but more extension from the hips. Like skating.
