One of most popular questions I get asked is weight training for Sprinters.
In this short video, I answer my favorite top 5 exercises in the weight room.
I do not discuss plyometics… strictly weight training, and preferably free weights.
I also do not discuss if weight training should be done before or after the running portion of the workout, as I discussed that with Derek Hansen in one of our Fireside chats.
The key elements (next to the top 5 exercises) are the chronological age of the athlete, the training age, doing them standing vs. sitting, and single leg vs double leg.
Take a quick look, and please add your favorite exercises in the comments below (and provide a short blurb on why you think it’s beneficial).
