Flashcards in speed development and plyometric training Deck (7)
phases of preparation of the sprinter
1. physical prepartion
2. develop basic sprint technique
3. develop advanced techniques
what is mostly genetic for speed?
what is mostly trainable for speed?
physical prepartion: improve work capacity, joint mobility and flexibility, all around basic strength, core strength, running endurance, general speed coordination, and motor learning
What are the first muscles to contract at the beginning of a sprint?
develop basic technique, specific strength (sled pulls is similar to sprinting) Short term endurance (running uphill) specific conditioning, dynamic flexibility to improve stride length
