Applied Sprint Training

There is no professional coaching endeavor that is capable of superseding the importance of securing biomechanical movement efficiency.

Movement is the commonality shared between all athletes in all sports. Thus the optimization of its efficiency benefits performance advancement as much as the prevention of injury.

Securing biomechanical movement efficiency is only one part of a greater whole; however, which is the omniscient objective of optimizing global training load management.

The coach who seeks to operate at an omniscient capacity assumes a global perspective towards problem solving. This point of view is central towards enhancing the process of deconstructing problems down to the basal level; at which point any possibility for debate is obviated.

Sprinting is one of the basal constituents, arguably the most important, in the preparation of most T&F, team based field and court sport athletes.

Any coach of speed/power athletes is assured to enhance these competition outcomes via the study and practice of applied sprint training.
