    Can running sprints build big leg muscles?

    What other muscles are used?

    no.

    even while running with weighted clothing uphill, running is still practically a zero-resistance exercise, meaning your body will give out because of the cardio workout long before it will give out from the stress on your leg muscles which means there is no chance to build any serious strength from just running/sprinting.

    it does however train fast-twitch muscles, some of which can relate to explosive forms of lifting, but generally running a lot won't effect your lower-body lifting stats.

    basically. going down slow = negative reps, which is good cause you can actually use weight that's above your max as long as your have a spotter to bring it back up for you. the higher the resistance, the more muscle you gain. of course, explosive workouts have their place as well.

    This thread is about sprints, not long distance running.
    There is only one principle of war and that's this. Hit the other fellow, as quickly as you can, as hard as you can, where it hurts him most, when he ain't lookin'.

    i know im trying to make the point that running isn't enough resistance to build leg muscle compared to squats and other lifting workouts.

    Are they sprinting? No.

    Have you ever seen a sprinters body?



    I'm guessing you've never sprinted, either. Anyone who's done a serious sprinting workout will know that it is a killer workout for the quads, hams, and glutes. I ran track in highschool and sprinting DEFINITELY added size and strength to my legs.

    I'm guessing you've never sprinted, either. Anyone who's done a serious sprinting workout will know that it is a killer workout for the quads, hams, and glutes. I ran track in highschool and sprinting DEFINITELY added size and strength to my legs.
    yeah i know what sprintings about, i just got through a sprinting season.

    you know asafa powell and maurice greene? two sprinters who held the world record in the 100m dash, both known for spending more time in the gym doing lunges and squats than on the track doing sprints.

    lol at sprints not building muscle.


    OP, if you do sprints you will gain leg muscle. However, not as much or as quickly as you would doing heavy resistance training.
    "Every great achievement was once considered impossible."

    -----Best lifts-----
    Squat: 395x1
    Bench: 275x1
    Deadlift: 430x6

    alright, *admits defeat*.

    just that i went through about 6 months of daily sprint training for my school's track team and i noticed i was losing a lot of leg muscle. i guess i must've been basing that off lifting stats too much and not actually accounting for mass.

    it does however train fast-twitch muscles, some of which can relate to explosive forms of lifting, but generally running a lot won't effect your lower-body lifting stats.
    Lol what???

    Ah yes, this is exactly why the pros use 1 rep negatives to build muscle ,
    of course, explosive workouts have their place as well.
    Wait...read your post from above

    Sprinting DOES build big leg muscles look at all the kids you know who are really fast they have huge legs and all the ones i know have never touched weights.

    Also sports which give you massive legs ar rugby (you do alot of sprinting and tackling is all in your leg drive, running the ball in strong and holding up is all in the leg strength, tehn for forwards there is scrums where i play second row and that means your the power house of the scrum all in your legs push, rucks and mauls use legs) obviously football gives you strong legs but if you dont eat properly you wont get massive thats why most footballers are skinny
