Heyy SS madcunts, i have been completing a modified phat routine (4days a week) coupled with the sprinting program here on this website. I have enjoyed the sprinting so much more then i thought i would and dare i say it - look forward to it as much as gym!!!

So my question is does anyone here know anything about a sprinters gym program, diet, sprinting program etc. Any links or information would be good.

Im not neccesarily going to do them i just find it all interesting and would like to gain knowledge on these athletes.

Cheers Matess!!!

They dont need anything Special...

they take the same ish we do...

I would say for the most part sprinters do alot of sprint work drills. They run alot of weighted up hill runs. They practice good form so like high knees all the time....But ya Sprint routine will WRECK your legs!! SOOOOO GOOD!

I run 5-7 days a week since I compete in track during the winter and spring. Right now I'm just working on longer endurance stuff, but once September hits, I'm going to switch it up to doing 400m specific workouts. Lots of fast 200s, 400s, and 600s. Also, plenty of hill work and mixing in some plyo.

Lifting wise, I'm currently on a modified PHAT routine five days a week to build my strength up while I can. Once I switch to a different running routine in September, I'm going to cut down my lifting and focus on the big compound lifts, probably four days a week.

And as @Swayz87 said, supplementation is the same. I use whey protein, fish oil, and a multi-vitamin. From what I know there's nothing geared strictly toward sprinting.

@stahmz52 Thanks heaps brah, good to have an insight from a runner man. Just wondering why are you on a modified PHAT routine instead of just pure strength or power??

Well I just started lifting again recently after not really lifting for a year (lazy me) and I liked how PHAT was setup and wanted to give it a go. Plus I figured I would only be on it for about a month or two before I switch. I don't know if those are good reasons, hah.

It all depends on which sprinting event and your body, and also what time it is during the year. But I'll be switching to the strength and power once I switch running routines. I don't want to completely crush myself too early.

Lower back is stiff as hell from deadlifts yesterday so no track bike for me today. Because of that, I'm going to try the sprint program AustralianOak posted up. So yeah, consider me IN!!!

Well do you plan on competing competitively? If you do, then definitely buy them. If you're not going to be competitive, then it's up to you if you want to or not. You can do the sprints just fine in normal running shoes. I only wear spikes in competition or if I'm doing a race-pace workout where I have to hit max speed.

Hey guys, actually instead of doing a split routine im doing a three day routine - total body:

First Day: Total Body - Low Reps
Second Day: Total Body - High Reps With Speed
Third Day: Explosive Movements

@nastybeast. No i dont compete yet man, school is really busy but i do plan on competing soon and im going to uni next year so i will do it then. I think that if you want to compete you really need a coach of some sort for your technique and to an extent your training. And i think spikes are a neccesity if you want to sprint, better grip, support and speed.
