Why are sprinters so muscular?
Sprinter have a higher percentage of fast twitch muscle fibers that make them more suited to quick acceleration for shorter distances. A higher amount of muscle density and mass means they can put that strength into maximizing the burst of speed and maintaining it over some distance. Sprinting is an anaerobic activity.
What are the six basic rules for sprinting?
Keep the shoulders square.
- Pull the knees straight up, and do not allow them to angle towards the midline of the body.
- Run by striking the ground directly below the hips, particularly when accelerating.
