hey everyone. I just started sprinting last week and i could barely finish all my sprints because for some reason as soon as i start running hard my quads seem to sorta cramp up.
even today in my first period weight training class i was jogging a couple laps with a buddy of mine. we were joking around and every once in a while i would start into a sprint and stop immediatley. i was calling them .5 yard sprints lol. but even that made my quads hurt. so it seems like any explosive horizontal running type movement causes it. i read that the usual cause for this is having stronger hammies than quads. if this is true, does anyone know how i could counteract this?
right now im doing 5/3/1 and im about to start the updated version of boring but big which Jim just posted on here a day or two ago. so all of my lower body movements would be a squat or dead. would you think its a good idea to switch my assistance sets of squats over to something more quad dominant like leg press?
