RatelleWill Ratelle on sprinting
Ratelle provide good information in short presentation. I am pretty much on the same page as Ratelle.
How To Add Sprinting Into Training
Ratelle's recommentation is...
1) Initially Once A Week
2) 5-12 Reps (Sets of 10 to 20 Yards.
3) Rest of Walk Back of 45-90 seconds to Starting Position.
High Intensity Inverval Traning
Ratelle's recommenation is High Intensity Inverval Training, which amount to Cluster Set Strength Training.
My prescription is smilar to Ratelle's: 3 - 5 Sprint Sets of 30 meters or less.
SupraMaximal Intensity Interval Training
My suggestion of taking Longer Rest Periods between Sprint Sets allow greater recovery; which ensure greater Force Production (Strengh and Power).
