Dr JB Morin is one of the world’s leading researchers on sprinting and speed development. In this episode we discuss the topics he investigated when studying for his PhD, notably investigating the technical and physical capabilities of the world’s fastest white sprinter, Christophe Lemaitre.
JB also shares his thoughts on the characteristics of both acceleration and sprint running, the ability of the vertical jump to predict speed, injury rehabilitation and more.
Though this is not discussed on air, JB has also recently helped to develop two training apps called My Jump App and My Sprint App which are both low cost, highly valid and reliable tools for measuring jump and sprint performance. I highly recommend them. You can pick them up from the Apple app store.
