Sprinting For Speed, Power, and Athleticism Part 1
What up people!
Lets talk about running fast!
Here’s part 1 of the 3 part series I will be writing ALL ABOUT SPRINTING.
Part 2 and 3 will cover the meat and potatoes of sprinting while this first part is going to cover the benefits of sprinting and why, you as an athletic or human being for that matter should be doing it and doing it often.
When it comes to sprinting, I like to think Joe and myself know our fair share.
Joe having an extensive background running track with blazing times in the 100m and 200m and myself testing out in the 40 yard dash in the 4.3 range back in my prime, we know how to train to get fast!
We still have a HUGE passion for sprinting.
Because sprinting keeps you strong, fast, athletic, and coordinated not to mention tons of other things.
The only problem is, not too many people or athletes for that matter actually get out and sprint enough.
Sprinting should be apart of ALL athletes workout regiments
Here’s just a few things sprinting can do for you as an athlete:
- Increases Speed
- Increases Overall Relative Body Weight Strength
- Increases Power and Force Production
- Keep the Nervous System Sharp
- Helps Decrease Body Fat Composition (If eating right)
- IMPROVES YOUR ATHLETICISM
These are just a handful of the benefits you’ll receive from sprinting.
I hope that after you read this you will get out and start sprinting a bit.
There’s a ton of different ways you can approach and program in sprinting into your workout plan.
Just make sure you’re adding it in for now anywhere possible!
New part I will discuss how to program sprinting into your workout plan for a multitude of different effects such as fat loss, speed, power, and flat out getting faster.
