Sprinting out of the blocks

Very similar speed day like I've been doing the last couple of weeks. The only difference was that today I used the Starting Blocks. Felt very awkard in the blocks. Been many years that I've worked on block starts. I am not pushing off the blocks, am not using the blocks. Need to learn how to EXPLODE out of the blocks!!!

BTW - American Justin Gatlin broke the world record in the 100 meter dash last Friday.
The previous WR was held by Jamaican Asafa Powell at 9.97. Gatlin ran a 9.96 - that is blazing!!! Look for that record to be beaten once again this year.

Warm Ups:
Various sprinting drills
joint mobility
high speed hip mobility

From the blocks:
2 x 20 meter @ 100%

2 x 40 meter @ 100%

2 x 60 meter @ 100%


Stadium sprints: 12 reps
* Focused on arm swing and powerful shoulders.

1 hour - that was it!

no doubt the fastest man in the world and he will break his own mark (all things being equal)

Keep training, love to hear that someone I know is keeping the art of sprinting alive :-)

See you late Friday night or Sat morning
