VSP Training Tip: Maximum Velocity

How can you get faster?! One way to improve your speed when running, at what you may think is your max velocity, is FLEXIBILITY. One of the key movements during a maximum velocity sprinting leg cycle is “heel to butt”. Watch footage of Jamaica’s two sprinting superstars Usain Bolt and Elaine Thompson in the 2016 Summer Olympics. Observe the flexibility of each runner’s quads, the range of motion through which they take each step!

At Victory Sports Performance, we begin and end every workout with intensive flexibility training, making sure our athletes experience optimal range of motion while sprinting! We want them to get fast and have those explosive steps on their opponents. Together, we’ll unleash your potential!
