Preserving explosiveness with Sunday sprints:

As we age, we tend to lose explosiveness, partly because it's an area we tend to overlook during training. By keeping an explosive element to our training, whether in the form of sprints, jumps or Olympic lifts we can better preserve our ability to move quickly and powerfully. While I wasn't setting and land speed records this past Sunday, it was great to get out on the track for a workout. Here, I ran ten 40-yard sprints with 2 minutes of recovery in between. - The first several were more explosive in nature, with the last 3-4 (including this one here) becoming more conditioning oriented. To keep them more explosive I needed more rest between each sprint, especially toward the end. - Regardless of your goal, explosive elements will help to move your training forward. Don't neglect them❗️💥 . . —— #howtoexerciseseries #explosivetraining #sprints #sundayworkout #strengthandconditioning #wednesdayexercise #exercisetips #vitalifit #educate #engage #empower #vitalifittips #strengthtraining #strenghtcoach
