Sprint Strength and Power Workout
Back by popular demand, we are going to be pulling sleds tonight.
Runners often use hill repeats to develop strength and power. Tonight we will be accomplishing the same objective by pulling weighted sleds on the football field. The sled weight and pull distance will vary. However, the time and reps will be equal for all athletes.

6 x 1000m on 7 minutes followed 3 x 400m sprints. The programed pace ranges for athlete during the 1000s was just below their anaerobic thresholds. Very tough and very challenging....so I thought. They cut through this workout like a hot knife through butter.
Even sweeter was the NorCal CFE athletes did a very similar workout last week. Awesome.
