    Re: Rip

    Funny enough, at his seminar I attended I asked him about tempo running, and he didn't see much benefit to it, or low intensity exercise in general.

    Re: Rip

    I just saw the news on T-Nation. I met Poliquin once in 2000 at a seminar he did on strength training for speed. You really had to meet him in person to appreciate how big his arms were, especially...

    Re: Experiment in progress.

    It's sounds like a general strength issue. I assume you don't have a coach. So, my advice is to get away from it for a while and work on other elements for the time being where you'll get better...

    Re: Experiment in progress.

    Try this drill. Mark off about 10m. Start lying down in a pushup position or on your side or back. On command from a training partner or just on your own initiative, scramble to your feet and run...

    Re: Experiment in progress.

    This is where we run into the limitations of using general cues. What works for one person might not work for another. It's difficult without providing feedback in person on the spot. It sounds like...

    Thank you. High praise indeed. I'm just glad I haven't completely misinterpreted everything.

    Re: Experiment in progress.

    That's the point. Actually, it's really more intent and sensation. I keep harping on this, but there is a huge gulf between what you are objectively doing in space (as seen by an outside observer)...

    Re: Experiment in progress.

    Personally I've found that if I just step straight down from the first step it tends to keep my hips up, which prevents my torso from popping up too soon.

    Re: Experiment in progress.

    I'm just taking a shot at this, but during the early acceleration from the low position do you concentrate on driving your knee toward your chest?

    Re: Experiment in progress.

    Can you expand more on this? Why are you having difficulty? Are you in fact having difficulty, or does it just subjectively feel like it's taking longer than you want?

    Re: Yohan Blake

    I think this goes to the heart of the matter and the reason why so many programs often become a hodgepodge of everything under the sun.

    You can probably achieve most of the benefits of olympic lifting with med ball throws.

    Re: Yohan Blake

    Now this I believe. Simple, general training and nothing dangerous. First do no harm.

    Re: Most effective type of squat

    I posted this clip of Stuart McGill a few months ago in another thread related to squatting, but it's worth repeating.

    Re: "hammer and nail" idea of sprinting

    "Percy taught me the difference between running and sprinting - that while you run on the ground, you sprint over it, with the briefest possible foot contact. It's like the spinning of a bicycle...
  19. Re: Can running hills improve max velocity or are there mainly for acceleration?

    Hills are typically used to develop acceleration. It has to do with the angle of the body relative to the ground. Running at top speed requires you to be upright for maximum extension and hip height...
  20. Re: Weight training overrated for sprinting beyond a certain point?

    You always have to put the application into the context of the sport's requirements. For running, strength has the greatest direct effect on the start and first few steps. For athletes that only move...
  21. Re: Weight training overrated for sprinting beyond a certain point?

    Look up youtube videos of Usain Bolt lifting weights. It looks nothing like a powerlifting workout.

    The only "gadget" I would recommend for speed development is a medicine ball.

  24. Re: Should "stepping over the knee" be actively done or is it an automatic action?

    You should really only be aware of front side mechanics.
  25. Re: Should "stepping over the knee" be actively done or is it an automatic action?

    You're overthinking this. Just pick the foot up and step down.
