Scientists discovered that towing a weighted sled with about 13% of your body weight can improve a 30m sprint significantly. Time to bust out some weights and start dragging!
Scientists examine the factors affecting reaction time and determine they are less neurological and more dependent on things we can actually train and improve.
Sprinting is a great way to increase agility as long as you do it safely. Here are ten articles to guide you in your sprint training.
Anaerobic training. You may have heard the phrase, but do you know what it is and why you should consider doing it? Let's look at this hated, but beneficial training mode.
Scientists took a close look at sprint performance and determined four things that made a difference in run times. Even though they're small, these techniques can make a big difference.
People my age have no business doing certain exercises. I think there should be a rating system for exercises, with some rated R for "restricted movement" and mature athletes just shouldn't do them.
Swimming is unique compared to other cardio sports like running and cycling. Researchers looked at how sprints impacted swimmers and their performance times, compared to other sports.
Maybe it sounds crazy, but new research shows a simple way to improve your sprinting times is to lift heavy ten minutes before you run. Not five, not twenty, but ten minutes before - and heavy!
Supplements can be overwhelming. Wondering if beta-alanine is worth taking? New research shows it improves sprinting performance pretty drastically. I think it's worth taking.
For endurance athletes it is a fine balance between volume and intensity in their training. New research looks at helping cyclists increase their VO2 max with high intensity running intervals.
New research on sprint interval training shows you can burn an extra 200 calories per day by putting in only 2.5 minutes of work. Not having enough time is no longer an excuse.
While efficiency and metabolic power may be the most important things in endurance, science shows running mechanics are the most critical thing for sprinting athletes - whether cyclists or runners.
