Anyone here got tips on sprinting more efficiently? I don't have access to a track, but my backyard is pretty big(not sure exactly how many meters though). Couple question I have are should I be running on grass, or on the road? And just common knowledge I should know of, I plan to join my school track team for sprinting because I'm decently fast but I know nothing about it. Hell I don't even know if sprinting has a proper form. So if you got any prior-knowledge on the subject I would appreciate any info/help.

Im on my schools track team So i think I'm qualified to answer lol.

Running on the road is better as grass usually sinks in when your running on it. This may not have immediate effect but after a while will cause cramps and long term ankle problems.For the Track thing just try out, usually track teams aren't to competitive so If you try you should make it. Your coach will teach you form and other techniques to make you faster. Also make sure to change your running shoes every 1500 miles or so, it can cause leg problems if you dont.


Hope I helped.

Generally my self, I don't like running on the road, as my friend got inflammation in his periosteum that way. I don't like grass either, as I'm always thinking of not slipping. So I did my first sprints in the forest and then moved to a real track.

I read this

http://www.simplyshredded.com/crank-it-up-sprinting-towards-single-digit-body-fat-percentages-with-high-intensity-training.html

And the watched those

However a real trainer is always best, but this is what I did and I think I improved very well. Don't forget good shoes is imporant

Aight, one more thing. Should I do sprint workouts everyday? or mix it up and rotate between run days and sprint days.

I did say mix it, though I have only done sprinting mixed with weight lifting. But generally, working on the same muscle group is not good. However conditioning is something you can work on everyday is also something people say.

Actually tried to spring on grass today, wont recommend it. Beside slipping, I felt some tension down at the ankle when I was down running. Road might be better then if it goes that fast.

All the advice I have for you is find out the proper technique for sprinting and the different stages for sprinting YouTube helps and running on the grass is easier on your legs.
Thanks Nameless for the awesome sig =D
