The Best Weighted Vest For Sprinting

After using a number of different weight vests, I have found that this vest is by far the best weighted vest for sprinters and runners. The Best Weighted Vest For Sprinting Most weighted vests are bulky, and they tend to bound around when running, jumping, or sprinting while wearing them. Because of this, many athletes avoid sprinting with a weighted vest and lose out on the potential benefits they can derive from this form of resisted sprinting. After researching and trying out different weight vests, I have found that the best weighted vest for running and sprinting is the Hyper Vest...

Best Sprint Sled For Improving Acceleration

The Best Sprint Sleds For Speed & How To Use Them I’ve used many different sprint sleds over the past 15 years, and in that time I’ve found that not all sleds are created equal. Sleds vary in quality, utility, use ability, and overall value. What makes a good sled for sprinting? Different users may have varied priorities in what they want out of a sled, but in general there are a few common themes that people care about with a sprint sled. The sled should be durable, light weight, and should be able to fit enough weight. Cheap sleds will...

Fundamentals Of Sprinting Technique

In the world of sprinting, our ability to sprint is limited most by how we apply force to the ground more so than how much force we put into the ground. Smashing the ground with your foot moving forward or out to the side is less effective than producing less force that you’re better able to apply into the ground in the proper vector. Because biomechanics and sprinting technique do play a pivotal role in whether we stay healthy and run faster or stay injured and run slow, it is important that we all have a fundamental, GED level understanding...

As discussed in my previous video, Power Force Velocity Profiling is a great way to gain insights into what a sprinter might need training wise in order to improve their sprint acceleration. Knowing whether you have a force deficit or velocity deficit is important, but this information can only be of use to the athlete or coach if they can then generate a plan which works to correct these deficits and create a more balanced force velocity profile in the athlete. Even more important, is knowing which types of training are more suited for beginner or advances athletes. Today we...
