Roid Monkey is off to a bad start
Default Resistance sprinting improves acceleration in athletes

Pretty straight forward, this one – get fifteen rugby players, split them in half feeling somewhat bad for the poor guy that has to get cut up the middle since it’s an odd number, and make one half do resistance sprints. For anyone unsure, resistance sprints are generally done with a sled tied behind the [...]

I realize the article only states that it increases acceleration and jumping power, but in general, resistance sprints for the whole length of the sprint (whatever distance you're training for) is generally a bad idea in my opinion.

Acceleration is a HUGE part of the sprint, and when you get 20 yds down the field, you had better be at top speed (hopefully well before then). At that point, the goal becomes maintaining speed, not continually accelerating.

Sprinting, in general, is a plyometric movement and we (should hopefully) all know that doing plyometrics in a fatigued state is highly counterproductive. So, if you've taxed your system in the first 20 yds, what do you think is going to happen to your mechanics once your muscles are already burnt out? They go to shit. Then, not only are you training in a fatigued state, but you're "teaching" your body how to sprint with shitty form.

K, thanks for reading. Bai.

an idea here is that maybe you should only have the sprinter do maybe 10yrd resistance sprints to increase his acceleration, and then run the normal length without the weights. another idea is to have him do walking lunges to strengthen the legs along with high rep squats. just an idea, this is abit out of my comfort zone

Exactly correct.

Lunges, and any other unilateral movement, absolutely must be incorporated into an athlete's program. That's how the game is played.

High rep squats....not so much. You'd still want athletes training in the 3 reps and lower ranges for max force production. This is why Olympic lifts and plyometrics are essential.

when i said high rep squats, i did not mean that they should be used at the exclusion of lower rep training, to suggest that would be foolish, but i do feel that higher rep training has a place in a well designed program

resistance sprint is great for building strength and accelleration speed to a certain point.

However, it is terrible for proper running mechanics. Depending on the desired outcome, running with weight can be detrimental to a sprinter.
