Develop Sprinter Strength Using Sleds!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Sunday, November 1, 2015

A great way to build power and explosiveness in your sprinters is to have them work out using a sled. In this clip, Ft. Worth Country Day High School head coach, Mark Brady, explains how sled training can be used in a sprinter’s workout regimen to enhance their speed on the track.

Strength: Sleds

Drill Summary: The sprinter straps into a sled and works on running while pulling the added weight. Coach Brady starts runners with 15 pounds and gradually works them up to 45 pounds, at most.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Brings knees up, not down.
2) Hammer back with the arms and keep thumbs in the hip pocket.
3) Keep the body upright.
4) Hold acceleration position and maintain mechanics.
