Synopsis

High Performance Sprinting by Mike Smith

Speed, and how it can be increased, is of prime importance in all sport and, in its purest athletic form, speed is synonymous with sprinting. In this clearly written, well-illustrated and comprehensive book, the author offers practical advice on the many crucial factors that need to be taken into account in order to maximise the sprinter's performance. Consideration is given to the development of detailed training programmes involving both the lightning pace of the 100m and 200m and the more controlled pace of the 400m. This authoritative book covers: - Technical development through skills and drills - The importance of the start and the finish - Training programmes and the training year - Strength and flexibility work - The relays - Preparing for competitions - The role of the coach

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
