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 for my events. However, I'm wondering whether some SE work is required to maximise my maxV.

I'm pondering this question because doing SE on the track is similar to going to failure with weights. If you never go to or near failure with weights you probably don't develop your full strength potential. Likewise, if you never go to a distance where you cannot maintain top speed anymore, will this prevent your body from receiving the required stimulus to maximise your speed potential?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and contributions,
Robin.
