Louie Simmons from Westside Barbell often uses the following analogy to explain the “Force-Velocity Curve”:
“if you try to throw a bowling ball as far as possible, it won’t go very far because the mass (read: force) is so great.
If you try to throw a whiffle ball as far as possible, you’ll also end up with a short throw because the whiffle ball offers minimal mass to push against. A baseball, on the other hand, can be thrown far because it’s a perfect blend of force and velocity.”
Keeping this above in mind, hill sprints offer similar advantages! They are basically a “sweet spot” between lifting and sprinting, the best of both worlds.
Find a steep hill and complete the following:
8 x 40M – Walk Back as Recovery
***REST 5 MINUTES***
8 x 20M – Walk Back Recovery
