    Sprints

    I haven't done any sprinting in years.. only walking/lifting..

    I want to get to doing some wind sprints at the gym but I'm worried about pulling a quad or some other muscle in my legs..

    Should i jog for a couple weeks first? and before i sprint/static stretching/dynamic stretching?

    I'd be more concerned with pulling a hamstring.

    Yes, start off with jogging...then graduate to jogging/moderate- intensity running on the treadmill or track. Use the incline too, to get adjusted to higher intensity and glute/hamstring activation.

    Must do DYNAMIC stretching before (and immediately after) any dynamic activity. Swing each leg back and forth, knees slightly bent, using your full ROM, to prepare for sprinting. When you feel your hip flexors, lower back, hamstrings warming up without any tightness or stiffness, then you'll feel ready to begin...Begin with a slow jog. Don't go into explosive- mode right out of the gate...

    Thanx, yeah i pulled my quad way back when, going into "explosive mode right out the gate" it wasn't a pleasant experience.. a lot of physiotherapy..

    I found the answer i was looking for in another thread.. having 100 threads with the same title makes them hard to weed through.. i should have just searched "sprints" in the first place.. but you do you

    Jumping Jacks
    Seal Jumps

    Mobility Drills:
    Roll Overs Into V sits
    Groiners
    Mountain Climbers
    Fire Hydrant

    Dynamic Stretching:
    Walking Lunges
    Walking/Running High Knees
    Walking/Running Butt Kicks
    Skips

    Frequency Drills:
    Wide Outs
    Gate Squeezes
    Low Pogos
    High Pogos

    Then:

    10-yard sprints ? 10 sprints with 1 minute rest
    20-yard sprints ? 6 sprints with 2 minutes rest
    40-yard sprints ? 4 sprints with 4 minutes rest

    Just some running to for fitness/conditioning/speed to go with my weight training.

    Thoughts? Additions? Anything not Neccesary?
