one track coach says glutes is the most important muscle for sprinting another coach says its the hamstrings,which one is it
Such questions can never really be answered. It only opens up more questions. Gluts –hamstrings work as unit during hip extension. Isolating one muscle group to be more important then another is counter productive. Sprinting relies on the successful interaction of hip, knee & ankle joints.
THATS TRUE YOU DON’T WANT TO ISOLATE ONE MUSCLE GROUP BUT I DO BELIEVE THE BEST SPRINTERS ARE GLUTE DOMINANT THAN HAMSTRING DOMINANT
Yes. If you think of movement around the joint you will more than likely work the appropriate muscles in the appropriate way
training the glutes will also lessen the chance of hamstring injury
How do you define Glut- dominance over hamstring dominance? What kinetic variable are you going to look at?
Considering that one of these muscles is flexor verse extensor makes this comparison less practical. Relative contributions of ankle, knee, hip joints is a controversial field. Placing more importance on a single muscle group for sprinting is a futile activity.
Our beliefs and opinions dont always led us to the facts about a issue.
If your overly sore in the hamstrings and not in the glutes,hips when sprinting it could be a sign of weak glutes and they are not firing properly so your hamstrings have to overcompensate the workload
couldnt say it better myself.
