High Performance Sprinting

by Mike Smith

High Performance Sprinting Synopsis

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
