how would you modify that for a sprinter (100-400m)
It would depend on several things…
– what stage of training? (GPP, SPP, Offseason)
– what the primary goals were (strength, hypertrophy, power)
– number of days available to weight train
– other issues specific to the individual
Sprinters obviously don’t need as much hypertrophy as a football player, and I’m not an expert on what specific weight training works best for a sprinter. There is actually an old thread that has been resurrected on CF.com about whether or not hypertrophy training might actually be more beneficial than strength training for sprinters.
And let me make it clear for the whiners, I’m not saying this is the program I would suggest for a sprinter. But sprinters are ‘special cases’. If they want to optimize hypertrophy, they should look towards bodybuilding. If they want to optimize strength, they should look towards powerlifting. If the want to optimize power, the should look towards Olympic lifters or consider other explosive movements.
