Enhanced Track & Field Training

Enhanced Track & Field Training

Maximum performance in track and field comes down to four key factors: Speed, balance, quickness and agility. These four act collectively for success in the sport. It naturally follows that your exercise regime as an athlete should focus on improving these aspects which in aggregate will improve your performance.

The Mass Suit is wearable, high intensity, full body resistance gear, meaning each body movement works against a resistance band, resulting in full body muscle strengthening. In the case of track and Field, you can use the mass suit to enhance your workouts and target specific muscles. Note that it is important to ensure your exercise regime stimulates movement patterns particular to your sport. This is why explosive exercise training is popular among track and field athletes for its proven ability to build strength and enhance speed. Explosive exercise training is done to enhance the track and field athlete’s ability to produce near maximum power output over a short time period.

Also important to consider is the distance the athlete intends to cover. For 100M to 200M sprints, initial raw power takes precedence, as opposed to a 400M dash which comes down to technique and elasticity of the athlete.

With that in mind, here are some examples of track and field explosive training exercises that can be performed with the mass suit for you to get the most out of your workout.

1. Hill Sprints and Sprint training

Short hill sprints and flat sprint training are popular among track and field athletes for their proven ability to develop explosive lower body power, particularly the glute, calf and quad. For an effective sprint, the focus is on driving your legs down to the ground and making sure your arms are going through a full range of motion, both of which can be enhanced with the mass suit for added resistance and drag.

2. Box Jumps

Jumping is a great way to improve both strength and muscle tone. The box jump is a pylometric exercise targeting the hamstrings, calves , quads and glutes. They are a great way to build explosive power and make the athlete springier, which is great for track and field. A typical box jump is performed by positioning yourself in a quarter squat and hinging at the hips to activate the glutes and hamstrings . Forcefully extend the hips as you swing your arms while concurrently pushing your feet off the floor, landing on the box and absorbing the impact as you land. With the Mass suit, there is added resistance as you engage these muscles for an even more fulfilling work out.

3. Depth Jumps

To execute a depth jump, the athlete drops off a box, landing briefly as he or she absorb the shock then immediately attempts to jump as high as possible. Some athletes have noted a significant increase in their explosion and vertical jump in as little as ten days

4. A Skips and Wall Drills

A skips are one of the simplest yet most effective drills done by athletes. They are great for explosive movement simply because they exaggerate the force at which the feet leave the ground, while the hands swing in opposition to the movement of the feet. Add the Mass Suit to this work out and you have all round resistance adding to this training technique.
The Wall Drill is similar to the A skip except this time the athlete is leaning forward, with his spine maintained at a 45 degree angle from the wall and the legs lifted to 90 degrees.

5. Switch Lunge

This is particularly beneficial to athletes who cover 400M or more in their races, We typically utilize slow twitch fibers during distance running, but with explosive exercise techniques like switch lunges, we are conditioning the body to also make use of fast twitch fibers in the muscles, meaning the athlete can push off harder and turn legs faster, ultimately leading to faster times. Switch lunges are fairly simple to execute. Both knees, one in front of the other are bent an 90 degrees, the athlete jumps and switches legs mid air, lands and executes the lunge again.

An overall benefit that track and field athletes will appreciate when it comes to incorporating the Mass Suit in their routines is the improvement in balance, reducing the risk of injury.
