It works. And then we sprint. And no, that's not the same thing.
When you think of "running," you most likely think about driving a 5K or 10K or a few miles at the beginning of your morning. It's about putting one foot in front of the other for several kilometers, a workout that will make you sweat and beat your lower body.
The Sprint is all about reaching the top speed in the purest sense, something you can only hold for a few seconds. It's about really accelerating your body and having every step of your step. It's not easy either, and only a few seconds of sprint will make you gassed.
But learning this art can make your distance training even faster and better. You'll see how you set new personal records in these 5Ks and 1
Sprinting causes your body to light various muscle fibers and quickly activates twitch fibers in addition to the traditional slow-twitch fibers that promote endurance activity. In a study of March 2018 it was found that only six sprint training sessions can improve your mileage, even if you have been running for several years.
I trained regularly to work on my sprinting technique, most recently last January, when I coached Nike coach Jess Woods weekly and focused on getting faster. It's a kind of workout that affects all of my running training, equips me for a better sprint, and also makes my legs more explosive and well-conditioned for blasting work.
You understand it now: Learning to sprint can make you a better all-rounder. Unlike the basics of running, sprinting is not a given, especially not if you've done a desk job all your life. To be active fast, you have to do more than walk; You have to think about perfecting your running mechanics.
Sharpening the Stride of a Sprinter
A sprint step is not just one foot in front of the other, as in a normal running step. It's a much more nuanced movement than this, one designed to get your swing going in one direction as quickly as possible, with as little movement as possible. To accomplish this step, you need to adjust the random way you can take a normal five-mile morning run. These exercises, which I've learned over the years and strengthened with Woods in January, can help you do that.
Bind Your Arms
Ranged runners do not move their arms much when they run. There's a reason for that: Maintaining a calm upper body can help save energy.
But a sprint is not about energy savings. It's about getting there as fast as possible. If you include your arms, you can grow faster. So learn to pump your arms hard and aggressive if you want to reach speed by sprinting.
