HOW TO RUN LIKE AN OLYMPIAN 🇯🇲🏃🏿💨
[increase your speed + protect your hamstrings]
Here's a sample of the MiQ program I built to increase @yohanblake (2nd fastest man in the 🌎) mobility and arch reaction time
This program was designed to .
🔹increase his arch response, making his step more efficient
🔹increase his big toe range to allow proper foot mechanics .
🔹create a faster muscle chain reaction response (ankle/knee/hip)
🔹futureproof his hamstrings to endure any angle
🔹increase his thoracic rotation to allow his arms to drive even more
Basically being at the high level he is at already technique wise and his excellent strength + conditioning being done by @sprytraining, my MiQ mobility program is the icing on the 🎂! By making his running more energy efficient, I really believe this is the last 5% he needs to break the world record this year .
Here's his current program that is specific to HIS needs, based on HIS muscle imbalances
1️⃣arch activation slow
2️⃣arch activation fast
3️⃣big toe / hip flexor priming
4️⃣hamstrings priming - 3 angles
5️⃣walking thoracic rotations
6️⃣3-point stance hamstring priming
I use the 5-10 rep ranges and make sure the movement is done as perfectly as possible. Slow it down at first and speed it up as technique improves
I use the term priming and not stretching because I realized stretching gives people the wrong idea. They think they have to LENGTHEN the muscles, when really what I'm trying to do is help the muscle understand how to lengthen+shorten THROUGHOUT the range
I will be breaking down these exs individually on IG LIVE THIS WEEK! (Will announce time soon!)
Shoutout to my man @yohanblake / @sprytraining for allowing to take part in this process. Beyond humbled and grateful for the opportunity. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
