Great Sprinting: Nature or Nurture?

It's a mistake to think that great sprinters are simply born to run fast. Experts in the science of speed say things like this:
  • Sprinting is a skill  ~ Loren Seagrave
  • Sprinting fast is an unnatural activity ~ Dr. Ralph Mann
There's a method to the madness of the drills and strength development we incorporate into Fall Training, Winter Training, and the competition season -- all aimed at developing the skills related to speed and making it easier and more natural for our athletes to run fast.

Check out this slideshow for a quick primer on the Science of Speed and the video below it on the Science of Running Faster.
