Horizontal force production at the hip joint is a key component to acceleration speed during sprinting. While resisted-sprint training (e.g., sled-towing) has been shown to improve acceleration ability in athletes, there is minimal research on the effects of horizontal force producing weight-room movements on sprint performance. It’s been hypothesized that improving maximal strength in movements …
