#MyRoutine – Harry AA – sprinter’s gym workout


Gym is supplementary to the track work. I’m a fairly heavy-set character;
I’ve got a fair amount and muscle so I don’t gym to build muscle, I gym to complement my my training programme on the track so everything that we do in the gym is geared towards running fast on the track whether that be being more explosive
or whether that be just more conditioning to strengthen various muscle groups and enable me to sustain a longer season as opposed to just going there
for aesthetics and looking good… What my gym routine normally looks like…
I’ll be on some CV equipment to warm up. Some remedial work, whether it be with bands or some
form of a stick or a light bar just to warm up. Also, then I like to do a lot of power cleans – that’s explosive from the floor. That is relative to our start and then from that you can change where we are at the time of year but it might be followed by some
form of leg press or front squat. but I do like to combine my core lifts or big lifts with an
explosive jump of some sort so if I’m power cleaning then I might be doing
some form of box jump or single-leg box jump. I do a lot of leg press but then my coach likes to combine some different activities in a different way. It might be pushing a sled with some form of disks moving this and that direction so there’s a lot of conditioning involved but that can take anything between one-and-a-half to two hours. I’ll be in the gym twice a week and I
probably will be running on the track three days a week with one yoga day in and around that, such as mobility like a recovery day… and then one day off.
