RUNNING A LONG DISTANCE FASTER OR RUNNING A SPRINT(SHORT DISTANCE) MANY TIMES IN A ROW WITH SHORT REST PERIODS WITHOUT A DECLINE IN SPEED BOTH REQUIRE AEROBIC STRENGTH. PART 2
Is your fastest player really your fastest player?
Not unless you have an optimum level of Aerobic Strength(peak Vo2) for you sport.
Learning how to run fast comes from correct mechanics. Running fast also comes from learning how to recruit your high threshold motor units.
The more muscle fibers that can be taught to turn on at a high rate of impulse frequency the more powerful you will become.
Training in the WEIGHT ROOM for Absolute Strength, Strength Speed, and Speed Strength are three forms of strength training that are a must for improving performance in running speed .
Sprint training, with jump training are also short term energy system training that must be use in relation to the exercise tolerance of individual.
WHAT GOOD IS IT TO LEARN TO RUN FASTER IF YOU CAN NOT DO IT IN A REPEAT MANNER.
Unless you test Peak Vo2 and use that data for training the Aerobic System as a measure strength you will not be able to compete when needing to use your power in a repeat manner.
The extent to which an individual can maintain their sprint performance is largely dependent on the extent Phosphocreatine can be resynthesis ,and the removal of hydrogen ions from muscle during recovery between bouts.
Optimum levels of Aerobic Strength for your sport increases the ability to resynthesis of PC and tolerate, remove, and buffer Hydrogen from working muscle.
Soccer players need to have mid sixties in Peak Vo2 to recover from high intensity sprinting for 90 min.
It has been demonstrated that Professional SOCCER players perform 28% more high intensity running and 58% more sprinting than players of lower Peak Vo2. Every sport has a mix of Anaerobic movements for a certain duration of time with rest periods that vary.
High School Football players that are playing both sides of ball trying to play a high tempo style for 4 quarters will start to look to have have very average speed without Aerobic Strength train for off Peak Vo2.
Stop letting you fastest players get wore down from ignoring Aerobic Strength.
