    Re: Ben Johnson add

  6. The correct way to move your legs when sprinting

    I'm curious to each member's take here on proper sprinting mechanics. I remember an older sprinter telling me that all you need to really worry about is driving the foot back into the ground in a...

    Re: Presentation Ben Johnson in Belgrade 2017

    I'm assuming a bad ass dude. I can't imagine how it would feel like for an athlete who was number one and then had to go through the whole process he did. If Ben even came out openly with his insider...

    Thanks for the reply. I haven't been able to train extensively for over 2 months and have lost a lot of strength, speed, and gained weight. I remember an older and very experienced athletics coach...

  12. Body weight in regards with sprinting and jumping?

    I've noticed that generally track jumpers have a very slight build compared to sprinters, there are lot of sprinters who are very muscular and seem "heavy" yet most jumpers are skinny. What are the...
  13. Low box step ups vs parallel box step ups, which one is better for jumping?

    Similar to a recent thread which type of squat is most effective, I'm wondering which is more effective for improving jumping, low box step ups or parallel box step ups? I've seen a lot of videos of...

    Wouldn't forcefully extending the support leg back result in long ground contact times and lost of posture/front side mechanics? From what I've read lately it seems like quick ground contact is the...

    "hammer and nail" idea of sprinting

    What do you all think about the hammer and nail description of sprinting? Here is a former elite 800m runner talking about this in a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qEBNuYSnjs

    Whenever I run hills it just feels lot harder and more tiring than running with a sled. I'm inclined to believe that what "feels" harder and gets you more tired isn't necessarily more effective than...

    Just wondering if sprinting up hills can improve one's top speed, or are hills primary a stimulus for improving acceleration up to 30 meters?
