8 Week Off Season 400m Dash Training Program
Get prepared for next season by taking advantage of your summer training.
Here at ATHLETE.X, we believe that you need to train year round to ensure that you are always progressing toward your ultimate goals. If your main event is the 400m dash, then this is the program for you!
Most athletes should take some time off during the off-season, but too much time off can lead to stagnation or a loss of athletic qualities. As such, a strength, power, and conditioning focused off-season program is a great way for you to maintain and improve athletic qualities during the off season, without working so hard that you are burnt out by the time your season comes around.
In this program you will get:
- 8 weeks of high quality training for the 400m dash.
- Strength, power, and conditioning workouts.
- Great off season proportion of work: 40% running/sprinting, 60% strength/power/conditioning
- Video links for nearly every exercise in the program conveniently link to the ATHLETE.X YouTube channel.
- A healthy balance of weight room and running workouts.
- Enough training to get you ready for next season, but not so much that you are burnt out or over-trained by the time you get back with your team.
To be successful as a 400m dash sprinter, you need to be fast, strong, and have good endurance. Most of the time, athletes develop these qualities during in-season training, but then lose these qualities during the off season.
Instead of losing progress this off season, utilize this off season 400m dash training program by ATHLETE.X to ensure that you are fully prepared for your next season of sprint training.
