I have made a few posts on this forum recently and it is clear that I am not aware/ understand many of the discussions that take place because I have no experience in sprinting at all but certainly have an interest.
I am 17 years old and have a passion for reading training literature from numerous authors/ sources and implementing them. Most of the books I have read are aimed at strength training either for athletes or for everyone. I have read material from Poliquin, Christopher Sommer, Pavel, Christian Thib, Charles Staley etc etc. I try to further my reading all the time but recognise the importance of not trying to follow/ mix many programs at once.
I am not a high class athlete whatsoever…just a normal 17 year old but I do gymnastics strength training and LOVE it. Sprinting is obviously a part of my training and so I thought why not learn from the best…here.
So what I am wondering is what is the best book to start with. I have very limited knowlegde in sprinting but a fairly good base with strength training. I was thinking Charlie Francis Training System. Is this good to start? Is it completely safe to download ebook format? What happens if the download stops and issues such as this?
