Thanks for your answers Zack Trapp and Kapp Gold!
I’m in good shape, I’ve been working out in the gym a couple of years. I’m in the process to change my workout from a bodybuilding-style towards olympic lifting. General strength I have, sprinting specific strength I will build with the core olympic lifting exercises and with some plyometric exercises. So generel strength training including the right nutrition will be the easiest part of all for me.
Hiring a coach is out of the question. Maybe I will participate in some trainings in a local track and field club from time to time. Mainly I will practice on my own.
Keeping it simple sounds good!
I lack more of speed endurance than top speed. Which could maybe lead to a Clyde Hart training program. But all other voices in the internet claim that in general becoming faster needs to concentrate on speed work and gradually extend the running distance including the speed endurance (for example Latif Thomas’ approach). right?
At the moment I literally just want to start running in the right direction and study the sprinting sport at the same time.
I totally love the Latiff Thomas approach. If you lack speed endurance, you could still do that type of approach(I’d recomend it). You could do a middle to ends program, which basically starts of at acceleration type work and longer extensive tempo type work and the two sort of meet up at speed endurance and shorter special endurance near the end of the year. It’s great!
