I did gymnastics for over 10 years now and I hurted my both wrists.
During 5 months, I only did some lower body training. I decided to start sprinting, but I have absolutely no knowledge about that kind of training so could you please say me what to practice principally. I will give you the more informations possible about me and how much I lift.
100m HT (with a standing start): 10,97 10,77 10,92 (In this order)
40 yards dash HT (with a standing start): 4,52 4,58 (With a small front wind ans they were the 5th run of the day within 20 min so I guess it didnt help me neither)
Half-Squat : 8400 lbs (could have done more)
Stiff-Deadlift : 8270 lbs
Bench press : 2225 lbs (5 months ago) (barbell)
Military press : 5135 lbs (5 months ago) (barbell)
Leg extension : 2300 lbs (with a machine)
Leg curl : 5 * 115 lbs (with a machine)
Leg press : 81170 lbs (could have done a little more) (that’s 26 plates total)
Vertical impulsion : 26,5 inches
That’s everything useful I have. Ask anything else if you think it could be useful too.
So please say me what I should do to improve my 40 yards dash and my 100 m and what are my principal weakness if you are able to see them.
well first id take out the the little racial comment…and second are you sure of the times and measurements, i mean those are good time, and with such a good squat and great plyometric ability(according to you sprint times), why is the vert sooo low…?
Look around the site, and buy charlie’s books, that basically what most will tell you, because you have to gain the knowledge so you can judge what you need and how to work on what you need.
1 Sorry for writin that I just though it was important (I removed it)
2 Time are HT but I’m quite sure it shouldn’t change a lot
3 I will do the vert again to be sure (it’s a standing vert I did, with 2 steps I do 31-32 inches)
I tried Vert agin today and I hit 28 inches, not a that big increase.
I always did half-squat (I stop when my knee is at 90°, feet flat), but I tried too box squat (stop when parallel, feet flat) and I only got 4*225 lbs. I founded quite ridiculous to box squat as much as to bench.
I will start doing box squat and deep squat isntead of half because of that.
Maibe next week end I will try to go somewhere they can give me an electronic time.
