    Re: Do you need SE for speed development

    Interesting. Will Claye’s 200m indoor PB is 21.77, which would probably be a low 21 outdoors, but he has only run 200m a couple of times. He’s run the 100m regularly and his PB here is 10.64, which...

    Re: Do you need SE for speed development

    Also, quite a few of the very best horizontal jumpers have run world class 200m (Carl Lewis, Mike Conley, Larry Myricks) or even 400m times (Christian Taylor).

    Re: Do you need SE for speed development

    Thanks for your comments. I think I will work up to including a couple of 120s in my training once a week.

    With regards to strength training, I’m not saying that I want to max out in the gym when...

    Do you need SE for speed development

    Hi there!

    Does anyone have any insights or experience regarding the question as to whether SE work is required to develop maxV? I'm currently only interested in LJ and 60m, so don't really need SE...

    Re: My Masters Training

    Interesting. So you are doing flying sprints down-hill? How many and over what distance? Also, how did you measure the slope of the hill?

    I was also surprised about the amount of overspeed in this program and that A-J was able to survive two overspeed sessions per week with only one day of rest in between.

    However, replacing...

    Re: Roosters training

    Is the tendon sore to touch? If yes, the problem probably lies in the tendon. How is your diet? Are you getting enough calories and enough protein? Are you taking gelatin with Vitamin C before...

    Ok. Sounds like you've been doing everything right then. I'm surprised that it didn't fix the problem. That's assuming, of course, that the problem was actually in the achilles tendon in the first...

    It's more than just an off year. I was referring mainly to men, but the women are not doing too well either compared to previous years. The men's times have been declining steadily since 2012 and the...

    Yes, and Jamaican sprinting is dead. One man marginally under 10 and no one under 20 this year.

    Did you do a proper rehab program for the tendon? Chronic tendinopathies do not heal with rest. They will feel better after a few months of rest, but then will act up again once you start loading...

    Re: 5 Mistakes Sprinters Make in Tempo Runs

    Usually 2x per week and 1200-1500m per session as a masters athlete. Used to do up to 2500m per session during GPP when I was younger. Speed was around 75% of vmax.

    Not “inevitably”, but certainly possible. Obadele Thompson, for example, never came anywhere near his windy PB. In the case of Baker, his 6.40 indoors already suggested that a low 9.8 was on the...

    At what point in the yearly plan of Bill Collins does he schedule the first competitions? The program looks odd to me, as you would peak at week 52 when the season is over.

    Only started lifting a bit heavier again a few months ago, but with a focus on Olympic lifts and hence more overhead and front rather than back squats.
