Track and Field – Speed & Agility Training and Sprint Training to be Faster and Stronger
Posted by Myosource Kinetic Bands on 15th Feb 2014
What do the 40-yard dash, hurdles, the mile, pole vaulting, high jump, and long jump, discuss, and the shot put have in common? They all require strength training and speed training. Basically, track and field comes down to who can run the fastest, jump the highest and throw the farthest. Being able to run fast does not just take great leg strength, but it also takes a strong core and strong arms to drive the body. Speed training is definitely a necessity. Of course throwing takes arm and shoulder strength, but it also takes strong legs to push the core to release the strength through the shoulders and arms. So you see that Track and Field requires athletes to have a strong body not just strength in a few isolated body parts.
