CT you’re impressive knowledge of training reaches beyond that of bodybuilding and I know you’ve dropped bits of knowledge on other sports. I’m especially excited by the recent bobsled thread which inspired this one… I would really love for you to share with me and comment on my writing below if you have the time.
I am going to beginning training for track season as primarily a 100m sprinter in about two to three weeks and I am putting together my plans. I do not run for an organized program so I’m pretty much responsible for my own progress and results-- which I’m excited about! (I felt some of my coaches in the past werent the brightest…)
Additionally I will be coaching High School kids beginning around March, so I want to learn as much as I can so I can train them efficiently as well!
Anyway if you have the time I would appreciate any information you or others might share for developing sprinters.
So far I’m looking at doing Olympic lifts (you mentioned getting a lot faster in the 40 after doing them), box squats, lots of glute/hip work, abs, and of course actual running.
Nothing yet is real detailed, I’m in the beginning stages of this and just trying to gather knowledge
