When it comes to knee lift, aggression & intensity should be the focus - not height/degree of hip flexion.
Excess knee lift leads to posterior pelvic tilt, making athletes prone to hamstring injury and under-performing.
Instead of focusing on the height or amount of knee lift, focus on creating an intense impulse of hip flexion which is then followed by the natural reversal of the leg back toward the ground.
The thigh should not reach parallel to the ground in most sprinters - if it does, the pelvis is tilting backward.
Optimize the knee drive intensity, timing, and range of motion, and you will run faster.
