Importance of Speed in 100m Sprint

Based on a sports analysis, trainer/coach training. For physical therapist sports analysis is the basis for the rehabilitation plan. A sprint is characterized by a high speed and a short time to keep full of these high running speed in a short period of time. Tops 100 meter races during the printer run 10 seconds. The anaerobic alactische system plays an important role in energy release in sprinting.

Stamina and energy to sprint

Endurance is often an underrated ground motor skills in competing. The sprinter must have a large anaerobic, alactisch power. This means that the sprinter must have a large stock of phosphate and must be able to freely with high speed energy from phosphate layer. Dropping stored ATP and Creatine phosphate along the phosphate layer. Phosphate supply can deliver up to about 20 seconds maximum energy exertion. To make the energy released from phosphate no lactate is formed.

Strength in sprint

Strength in sprinting is very important. The muscles that must deliver high power at high speeds, typically will contain many type 2A and type 2B muscle fibers. Sprinters with very type 2A and B muscle fibers in their muscles have a natural talent for sprinting. A long distance runner will mainly have type 1 muscle fibers. Especially explosive strength and speed strength is very important. However, the sprinter also train for hypertrophy. The increase in muscle mass with education if hypertrophy can be accessed later when you train with force recruit converted speed at walking speed.

Coordination and agility sprint

A sprinter must not be very smooth. The sprinter is the only one way out and not stop or change direction. However, coordination must be very good sprinter. The sprinter will have to tighten certain muscles at the right time with the right force. A sprint is not only went with ben, but with the whole body. The torso should remain upright and as still as possible, should the poor be the opposite legs moving at the same speed from the front to the back and the legs should be very fast, deliver great power.

Speed in sprint

Speed is the most important råmotor skill. A high flow rate is achieved by being able to do a lot of energy in a short period of time. In other words, a sprinter deliver high power and can deliver enormous power in a short time. Tops 100 meter races during the printer run 10 seconds. On average, then reaches a speed of approximately 40 km/p [where hours. The top speed on a 100 m sprint is about 50 kilometres per hour. To reach the high ground speed will use sprinter especially type 2 muscle fibers.A sprinter will especially have a lot of type 2A and 2B type muscle fibers. The sprinter will thus be able to accelerate to top speed very well and should be able to maintain a certain amount of time.

Agility in sprint

Flexibility is not the limiting factor in the race. Does not move to end the limits on race. It is important that there are no obstructions in the joints.

Contact with an opponent in sprint

When will compete there is no direct contact with an opponent. However, it is very important that Sprint remains in its own orbit.
