|Title:||Effect of lower body explosive power on sprint time in a sled-towing exercise|
|Citation:||Science and Sports, 28 (6), pp. e175 - e178, (2013)|
|Abstract:||This study investigated the correlation between lower body explosive power and the rate of increase in sprint time with increasing sled weight in a sled-towing exercise. Synthesis of the facts: Eight male sprinters performed tests of lower body explosive power. The rate of increase in sprint time showed a strong correlation with countermovement jump height (r= -0.73) and with normalized peak power in a countermovement jump (r= -0.81) and a squat jump (r= -0.80). Inter-athlete differences in the rate of increase in sprint time might be due to differences in the athlete's power-to-weight ratio.|
