Ryan Banta is a teacher and track and field coach at Parkway Central High school in Chesterfield Missouri. Ryan is a frequent contributor to well known speed development websites including www.speedendurance.com, www.elitetrack.com, and www.justfly.com. Ryan recently edited and released the much anticipated Sprinter’s Compendium, a complete A to Z of speed development compiled from his own experiences conversations with over 50 of the world’s best track and field coaches.
In this conversation Ryan and I delved deep into the background of the Sprinter’s Compendium: why he decided to embark on a mammoth project like this in the first place, what were the unifying training themes of all the experts he interviewed, what were their differences, and what he has changed his mind about between starting and finishing this five year project.
