Is Sprinting Good for Adults – How to Start A Sprinting Program – Franz Snideman Sprinting Program
An Essential Aptitude for Better Health, Movement and Performance
While many people include sprinting in their list of important training skills, not so many people actually do it. Spend an hour with sprint coach Franz Snideman to learn the value of sprinting and how to introduce sprinting to your training programs.
“What are the benefits of sprinting? Why should you sprint? Number one, assuming you’re sprinting well, it gives you better neurological health. That means when you sprint at a very high speed, it’s taxing on your central nervous system. It requires a lot of energy to be able to put that much flow through your nerves to recruit your fast twitch muscle fibers. “You could probably say sprinting at high speeds is one of the most neurologically demanding activities a human being can do. You might put Olympic weightlifting up there, or other things that require incredible explosiveness. Those are the things that absolutely tax the nervous system. From that perspective, sprinting can keep your nervous system healthy.” ~Franz Snideman
