This is the best exercise you aren’t doing!
What is the exercise?
It is an exercise that has become my personal favorite to do.
This exercise …
Is the best core exercise you can do.
Makes you athletic.
The exercise is SPRINTING!
It is now September which Mike Tucker, Strength coach at Villanova, coined as Sprintember.
So if you focus on one exercise this month, make it sprinting.
Don’t just randomly start sprinting at 100%.
That is a recipe for torn hamstrings and quads.
Start with a dynamic warm-up.
Then progress to some sprinting drills.
Then do some build-up sprints.
Start at shorter distances and gradually work to longer sprints over time.
When sprinting to build speed and get faster, make sure you are taking full recovery between reps.
My rule is 60 seconds for every 10 yards sprinted.
So if you sprint 10 yards, rest 1 minute.
If you sprint 20 yards, rest 2 minutes.
Sprinting is a max effort movement.
So if you want the most benefit from it you need to be rested.
