As being as my other topic is on dieting, you can guess that this topic is not for me!! More just a discussion point. I overheard a conversation at the gym yesterday evening. Young fella, probably about 18 was talking to one of the staff saying that his athletics coach wanted him to put some more muscle on and that he did the 200m. This got me thinking: sprinters have in the past been muscle monsters. But is the increase in strength, power and speed commensurate with the weight gained? Even going back as far as 1992, the UK's Linford Christie was massive. But Usain Bolt (by sprinting standards) is not overly muscular. So is the paradigm shifting? Wouldn't they be better doing, say, squats, deads maybe calf raises, and benches PTTP style? And maybe adding/cycling between low rep very heavy cleans for power rather than going for hypertrophic strength?
