Hill Sprints for 40 Yard Dash Improvement

I am currently on vacation up here in Canada, a long way from my home in Florida. I am getting way from it all but wanted to write to you to share some experiences with you.

Yesterday I decided to go for a interval run for my training. While on the run the lanscape of the Canadian Shield was kicking my butt. Steep hills define the challenging rocky terrain, and often I found myself sprinting up a forty five to sixty degree angles. It was tough to say the least.

See running hills provides a great challenge to the body and when adapted for combine training can play a key role in improving your 40 yard dash time.

It generates leg power and is great for firing the poserior chain, so important for sprinting.

If you have access to a steep hill, throw it into your workout routine to add some variety. Perform sprints up the hill then walk down and repeat. Try to power through each stride using the legs and the arms to drive you up the hill.

Thats all for now! Keep pushing it!
