I’m hoping there are some college level sprinters or coaches out there who can answer
this. If not, perhaps someone at T-mag can
pass this question on to Charlie Francis for one of his
Q1: what is considered a "good time" for
a top univeristy level sprinter? (and I'm
not refering to the sorority house party type
of 'good time' here. :-)
Q2: how can a person tell if he/she is genetically predisposed for sprinting success?
Reason I ask is because for the past 1&1/2 years I've been replacing 1 of every 4 leg workouts (I train quads & hams together) with a sprinting workout. I go to a local state university track to do this. Yesterday one of the track coaches (he thought I was a student) timed me and said I had a good time and told me I should try out for track. He asked me a bunch of questions about my training. I've never thought of myself as having particulary fast twitch legs. My quads are average or a little below, but my hams grow easily. I don't have time for track, but I'm just curious to see if I have some latent sprinting potnential I wasn't aware of...
