Sprint Resisted Training

The key to effective resistance sprint training is to find the sweet spot or “speed zone”, at or beyond an athlete’s top speed but below the point where mechanics are compromised. This concept requires finding the maximum amount of weight that each athlete can tolerate without breaking form. Observation by a trained coach or video …

Towing Force

Clark, DA, Sabick, MB, Pfeiffer, RP, Kuhlman, SM, Knigge, NA, and Shea, KG. 2009. Influence of towing force magnitude on the kinematics of supramaximal sprinting. J Strength Cond Res Jul;23(4):1162-8. The ideal “training zone” for supra-maximal towing may vary slightly  from one athlete to another. The amount of force applied must be enough to increase stride rate, …

Biological Maturity and Ground Reaction Force Production

Sprint ability develops nonlinearly across childhood and adolescence. However, the underpinning ground reaction force (GRF) production is not fully understood. This study aimed to uncover the kinetic factors that explain these maturation‐related sprint performance differences in Japanese boys and girls. A total of 153 untrained schoolchildren (80 boys, 73 girls) performed two 50‐m maximal effort …

Returning to Play after Prolonged Training Restrictions in Professional Collision Sports

The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 has resulted in widespread training disruption in many sports. Some athletes have access to facilities and equipment, while others have limited or no access, severely limiting their training practices. A primary concern is that the maintenance of key physical qualities (e. g. strength, power, high-speed running ability, acceleration, deceleration and …

Body Fat, Muscle Mass, and Sprint Performance – Blog Entry by NASE

Abstract: It is generally believed that more muscle mass in the lower body reflects more muscular strength and power. If true, greater ground reaction forces may be facilitated from increasing muscle mass, which may result in higher maximal running speeds. One method to assess the potential contributions of body composition (i.e. muscle mass and fat …

Plyometric and Speed Training Effects on Linear Speed, COD, and Speed Endurance – Blog Entry by NASE

Abstract: It has been well established that plyometric and speed training have positive impacts on fitness parameters in soccer players. The aim of this study was to compare short-term effects of a combined plyometric and speed training implemented on the same or separate days of a week on change of direction (COD), linear speed (LS), …
