MAXIMUM SPORTS CONDITIONING
SPRINTERS TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Maximum’s philosophy on training sprinters is founded in improving stride length, stride frequency and the efficiency of their biomechanical patterns. We aim to increase sprinter’s force production, in the right direction, and performed in a very short amount of time.
Based on these skills, sprinters must develop:
- Joint stability, and connective tissue strength through the ankle, knee, and hip complex (to support and stabilize explosive linear actions)
- Posterior chain strength and power (to develop strength through glutes, hips, and legs)
- Reactive ability and quickness (for explosiveness out of the blocks),
- Core strength (to stabilize lower lumbar spine, and to aid in control of large motor movements)
