    Ben benefitted from having a coach who knew how to be a sprinter and lived through many training blunders. Ben had a coach who devised a plan which he has successfully ( for the most part) been able...

    Re: RB34 Training Journal

    I'm not sure you need to re-invent the wheel RB.

    Why no heavy squats? Why get too far away from heavy squats? They are easier ( for most) to perform well and unless you have a really good reason...

    Re: Michael Thomas

    Most people want to add too much lifting, too much jumping, too many extra exercises post speed work.

    Re: Form Critique - What Should I Work On?

    If you train alone all the time it's difficult to see what is going on.
