Running at the Sub-Atomic Level
Improving your maximal speed will upgrade your performances at all race distances, even the marathon. Unfortunately, many runners are unsure about how to enhance their power. Fortunately, the uncertainty melts away when running is approached from the most-basic, "sub-atomic" level.
Fundamentally, you'll get faster if you put more force on the ground with each step - and if you apply that force more quickly. The key is to train in ways which optimize propulsive-force production and quickness. The old way of doing things, running intervals at the track and throwing weights around in the gym, just doesn't cut it anymore when it comes to speed advancement.
What you need are dynamic strengthening movements which closely mimic the mechanics of running, blended with very high-quality running training. In our exciting new seminar, Running at the Sub-Atomic Level, Owen Anderson, Ph. D., and Walt Reynolds, C.S.C.S., guide you through the training which will make you both stronger and more powerful. Through "hands-on" sessions with complete explanations of the workouts and overall program you need, you'll learn exactly how to maximize your whole-body strength, running-specific strength, and explosiveness.
