  Sprinting, Sprinters and Speed Training
Sprinting not only burns HUGE amounts of calories while sprinting, it also keeps your metabolism flying for days after.
On top of all this, sprinting is a great exercise for your hamstrings and can help sculpt and tone those muscles you would kill to have.
Remember that quality sprint speed is a combination of stride length and stride frequency and one does not replace the other.

 Sprinting | TX2007 | PyCon - A Conference of the Python Community | browse
A sprint is a focused development session, in which developers pair in a room and focus on building a particular subsystem.
The sprint approach works best when the first few hours are spent getting oriented -- presenting a tutorial for the development material, laying out the stories to tackle for the day, getting everyone a CVS or SVN checkout to work with.
Sprints which don't generate enough interest in advance may be dropped by their organizers.

  Sprinting
The sprints cover the following track events: 100 metres, 200 metres, 400 metres, 4 x 100 metre relay and the 4 x 400 metre relay.
Although the sprints are events in themselves, the ability to sprint is an important weapon in an athlete's armoury for many track and field events and many sports.
Guidance on the sprint technique takes the form of a checklist, for each phase of the sprint, of points for the coach to monitor.

  The Sprints - - by Marco Steybe
Sprint speed is also a crucial component of the hurdles, horizontal jumps, pole vault, and all middle distances.
The second function of the sprint start is to put the runner in a position from which he or she can accelerate most evectively in the early portion of the race.
Sprinting is an anaerobic activity and produces a large amount of lactic acid in the muscles.

Sprinting is an activity in cycling that's necessary for being successful in the sport.
Sprinting involves the activation and the training of the ATP-CP system -- responsible for short-burst activities lasting 10 to 15 seconds -- and the anaerobic glycolysis system, which supplies the energy required for high-intensity efforts lasting longer than 10 seconds.
While many track sprints are performed seated, most begin out of the saddle and it's rare for someone to win a sprint without standing at some point.

 Harvard University Cycling Association
As you start your sprint, you are in the saddle, but over the course of your sprint you may rise a few inches out of it.
Because sprinting requires both top speed and top acceleration, there is no denying the value of strength building exercises, both in the weight room and on the bike.
Sprinting requires maximum output over a relatively short period of time, and your ability to sustain highest output for 15 seconds rather than 10 seconds, or 16 seconds rather than 15, may be the difference between finishing first and finishing off the podium.

 CATHY FEERMAN'S SPRINTING TECHNIQUE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
An important role in the economy of locomotion in sprinting is the velocity of movement of the swing leg (Figure 2).
For an efficient sprinting stride, horizontal velocity of the foot of the swing leg in the contact phase and a high grabbing velocity in the propulsion phase are important.
The economy of the technique of sprinting is strongly connected with the vertical oscillations of CG.

Running and sprinting have been studied in the past1,2,3 but to the author's knowledge, a three-dimensional kinematic and kinetic evaluation of sprinting in untrained athletes has not been reported.
During the absorption period of stance phase in sprinting, the knee progressively flexes from 34° to 39°.
If one recalls that in sprinting the knee and hip are in greater flexion at this point and that the body is pitched forward, then it becomes apparent that IC can occur on the toe in sprinting and on the heel in walking.

Having decided to go sprinting, they now required a car - one of their friends had a race Mini which had been laid up for 10 years and was partially stripped out.
The sprint was scheduled to be part of the Nikki Stevens memorial race day so due to the full day of racing the sprinting was limited to one practice run and two timed runs.
Dave decided to enter the ACSMC Guilford tyres sprint championship this season as most of the rounds are in the south of England and he could then concentrate on dialling in and developing the Mini rather than driving all over the country to race.

These also are done at the beginning of a sprint workout to prime the nervous and muscular systems and prepare them for the work to come.
Small-ring sprints work on leg speed and neuromuscular recruitment, and are a great way to work on sprinting early in the season, work on sprinting fundamentals, get ready for the big ring on sprint days, and to spin out the legs after big-gear riding.
These are 50- to 150-meter sprints going as hard as you can, winding each gear out completely, and resting three to five minutes between each until the cassette has been run through.

Sprinting is an activity in cycling that cannot be avoided.
These include, but are not limited to: attacking uphill, sprinting downhill, into or out of a corner, sprinting from inside, in front of, or from behind the pack.
Done to work on leg speed and neuromuscular recruitment, these are a great way to work on sprinting early in the season, to work on sprinting fundamentals, to get ready for the big ring on sprint days, and to spin out the legs after big-gear stuff.

 Sprinting For Size
Sprinting can be exceptionally demanding and, despite what some people say about running turning you into a pencil neck, sprints can make you grow - if you do them right.
Consider this: When it comes to sprinting for building bigger legs, size is created by volume of training, while load (amount of speed or resistance) builds strength.
Sprinting puts an unaccustomed load on your muscles, so to avoid injury, you must build up your speed pattern.

 Tennis injury prevention | sprinting injury prevention
Sprinting is a linear running sport and obviously involves no contact, so there are few knee or ankle joint sprain injuries.
The neuromuscular system has to be well coordinated to control these different hamstring functions in such a fast movement as sprinting, and if the hamstrings are not sufficiently strong and flexible they will be unable to meet this demand and the chances of hamstring strain increase.
The pull of the hamstrings from the foot, extending the hip in the buck lift exercise is exactly the same as the pull of the hamstrings during ground contact in sprint running, making it totally functional in relation to sprinting.

 Sprint Training - Important Principles for Running Speed and Acceleration 100m, 200m & 400m
The right program is needed for running the athlete has only so much time in the week and they need to recover for their high quality running sessions.
The recommendation is that the athlete when running resisted with the aim of improving maximum speed should not be slowed by more than 10%.
You may have noticed some sprinters look to be running faster at the end, it is the increased cadence that you have noticed not the loss of stride length.

 HISTORICAL ANALYSIS OF AMPUTEE SPRINTING PERFORMANCE | American Academy of Orthotists & Prosthetists   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The history of amputee sprinting is relatively short, beginning in the early 1980’s, While the first international competition for amputees was in 1981, it wasn’t until 1984 and 1988 when transtibial amputees and transfemoral amputees first competed in sprinting events in the Paralympic competitions.
Another key element that influenced their success was the amount of time they were able to devote to training, which included six of the world record holders being able to train full time while only two had trained part time.
In reality, the history of amputee sprinting competition is simply too short and there have been too many factors influencing it to be able to make those assessments at this time.

Since sprinting is the most essential and basic of all athletic movements, I am pleased at the high level of interest and am happy to supply detailed information on sprinting form and techniques.
Our first goal in sprinting is to strengthen core stability to enable your athlete to use their kinetic chain as efficiently as possible.
Run sprints at 90-95% of maximum speed and do not be surprised if some of your athletes sprint their fastest time ever because of greater relaxation and avoidance of tying-up.

Sprinting, however - due to the extreme nature of the muscular recruitment and activity needed to power it - takes these energy-currency transactions that are occurring in your muscles even further.
As a result, the first several seconds of every full-out sprint are going to have a tremendously significant effect on the cellular energy environment in the vast majority of your skeletal muscle, a milieu which your body detects, and (shout out to Charles Darwin) has evolved adaptive response mechanisms.
Finally, sprinting is also tremendously effective at simultaneously improving one's aerobic and anaerobic cardiovascular (to differing degrees, depending on the type of sprint(s) used and format of the workout) capacities.

In athletics, the term 'sprint drill' is frequently used and this mistakenly infers that the exercises are only of use to sprinters.
It is believed that the origin of many of these drills is the training regimes of the old Eastern block countries however it is probably better to look for their origins in the running skills they are intended to improve.
The most important action of the leg and foot during sprinting is the backwards movement of the foot relative to the forward motion of the whole body.
