Summer Training Guide: Track

Download STACK's Summer Training Program for track, by William Alli, strength coach for the Indiana University track team.

Speed is a product of strength, and after a long spring of meets and races, track athletes need to rebuild their muscular power. William Alli, strength coach for the Indiana University track team, created this program to help his athletes get faster and more explosive. The four-week training program includes three workouts per week. The individual routines feature Olympic lifts that train your hips, knees and ankles to extend powerfully so you can put more force into the ground with each stride and propel your body forward faster. The workouts then use lower-body exercises to build your foundation of strength, including single-leg exercises that will point out and eventually correct muscle imbalances. The result: A stronger, faster you.

The following mini-circuits will keep your sprint stride sharp and strong. They will also help address common mobility and strength problems.
