Running, jumping and throwing faster, higher and farther than your opponents. These are the measures of track and field, the world's oldest sport. Since the beginning of recorded time, humans have been running footraces against each other. In today's modern sport, athletes need to prepare well to compete at their best.
Different track and field events require different types of preparation. Sprinters like Usain Bolt want to build fast twitch muscle. Distance runners like Genzebe Dibaba build endurance, and hammer throwers like Anita Wlodarczky work on upper body strength. Read tips from pros like these and many others to help you prepare to compete at your best.
Every book in the Preparing for Game Day series takes you through how to physically and mentally prepare for your favorite sport and provides a rundown of the steps you should take when it is time to compete.
