    Re: Glen Mills the first coach to.....

    I think this discussion lends itself to some important ideas. How do we draw upon the supposed workouts others do? Without a proper explanation from the coach itself I think its a little presumptuous...

    Re: Glen Mills the first coach to.....

    I've done loads of tempo in my life, its never helped me much. Too much of a workout instead of recovery.

    Better genetics, white guys dont run fast don't you know. And i'm sure they are sprinting too, so you could also ask, why are more genetically gifted athletes who do specific work beating me? Maybe...

    I've found that all this tempo stuff we look for correlations and explanations when there is possibly none. I'm sure we want to think that tempo makes you fast because it helps with recovery, and to...

    Re: Glen Mills the first coach to.....

    Mills is a great coach, and so is John Smith. Bud Winters was good at the time. But come on, he was one of the first guys to coach black sprinters. You can't tell me that whatever he did people would...

    Re: My quest for 6.7

    I just find tempo to be more of a workout for me and doesnt help me recover. I've heard from other people too that they get more benefit out of a 20 min run. I think it all depends on how you feel....

    Re: My quest for 6.7

    I typically respond poorly to tempo. I think its my aerobic physiology. I think low intensity work is very important to balance out the high intensity stuff. This will sound funny to most people, but...

    Re: My quest for 6.7

    The main reason I probably won't continue with my current setup is for the same reason I stopped the previous setup. If I continue to do it, my body over time will stop responding to it.

  11. Re: Unilateral instead of bilateral weights for the 400m

    I'm sure there are many top 400m runners that don't use squats or big movements as you call them. Its never a matter of right or wrong with what you do with training, but varying degrees of optimal...

    Re: Bolt anchors RTC in 37.82

    Ya, he still pulled away significantly at the end as well, besides the gap created by the bad pass. The gap grows because of the pass, maintains, then grows some more.

    Re: Brooks Johnson interview

    No they do a full warmup, then run a 200m @ 80-90%, then 30-45min rest and do the prescribed workout for the day. So I would assume Gatlin does his in 20.3ht, as Brooks talked about.

    Re: Brooks Johnson interview

    Good man. I trained with him for a 2 months a few years ago. He's a scary coach to have, very old school, but hes seen everything.

    Brooks is huge on teaching his athletes why you do things. He...

    Get organic, unhomogonized whole milk from grass fed cows if you can find it at your local farmers market. This is the most nutrient dense milk. If you tolerate it well milk can be ok. If not, try to...
