[quote author="Zack Trapp" date="1372300077"]The FAQ’s have alot of good information on sprint training. I would start there. Given that you are a masters athlete, I would say that you should spend 2 days a week on speed development, lifting, and plyos. Then I would do 2-3 days of either extensive tempo, body-weight circuits, and med-ball type circuits. Its important to remember that at your age your going to need more time to recover than someone in their 20’s.
Thank you very much for the great advice.
One thing I did not find in the FAQ is whether I should build more power and strength via work out (=bigger thighs)..?[/quote]
Getting stronger is a big plus, but you shouldn’t really focus on getting bigger unless your underweight. Do alot of squats, presses, and cleans in the 3 to 6 rep range for maybe 20 to 30 total reps and you’ll be fine.
