    ive never heard as much c*** as this statement in my life , sorry im guessing its something you learnt in a biology class but are incorrectly applying to training

    fast twich and slow twitch are two seperate fibres so improving slow twitch (endurance) cannot hinder fast twitch
    i've never taken biology in my life...however the way I learnt it is that they maybe different fibres but one only has so many in total. Why else do you think high profile sprinters never take part in marathons for charity even between seasons.

    Im un-sure on the effect of endurance training on fast-twitch muscle fibres, but I will say this:

    Doing long runs(endurance work) promotes a physiological response to adapt to this, meaning your body will become more efficient at running. So, imagine running for an hour today, and say your heart-rate is on average 160bpm for the duration of the run. Now, if you were to do this regularly, after many weeks of training it might be 150bpm on average, to do exactly the same run - hence your body requires less energy to do the same effort.

    This, as you can imagine, is nothing but a good thing if you want to be able to run fast for any sort of duration.

    Having said that, 200m is a sprint, and is an extremely short race, and I would imagine it is mostly anaerobic, therefore doing long runs at a low intensity could be absolutely pointless..

    Basically - ask your coach(if you have one) and if you dont, get one.
    I'd go along with that except that it might still be useful if you are overweight (to the level that it slows your sprinting down) however basic interval training is probably better.

    I would agree that interval training is likely to be better, the problem comes with the fact that interval training is exhaustive, and produces lactic acid, if you did it daily you would quickly overtrain, so what other kind of training do sprinters do? Especially as an average interval session takes about 30 minutes, and sprinters train for several hours a day(I would imagine?) ?

    yes mourinho was a huge factor but i would have loved 2 seen wot he could have done on a limited budget in the premiership!!

    I agree. I think it would have been only a matter of time before he enjoyed lots of success though. He did win the UEFA Cup and then the Champions' League on a limited budget - on a fraction of what teams like Madrid, Manchester United, Milan etc. could afford.

    To be honest I don't really know but at a guess they must do **** loads of weights, both upper and lower body but probably only a handful of reps... maybe some short very intense circuits?

    Exactly. I don't know what Porto were like before he came, but when other managers say they respect him for his success there has to be reasons for this.

    Great win for Safin but so frustrating. When he plays like he did in the last set he is as good as Federer in my opinion but he is so inconsistent. He was a changed man from the first set.

    Safin really did play well (loved his speech as well!), but I was rooting for Hewitt, who I believe is a far more consistent player. Would have been so great for him to win in his homeland, but there's always next year.

    I know looking at that video it's hard to believe but there's been similar things said about the likes of Sonny Pike and people - who knows what could happen.

    Brazil do have an incredible record with youngsters hitting the big time while still young though - first the likes of Ronaldo, then Ronadinho, then Diego and Robinho, now Tardelli and Rafinha and now this little fella.

    Good luck to him, I just hope he doesn't sign for a proper club till he's 17 like most 'normal' children.

    Not really, just the way he congratulated Hewitt's "gang" for supporting him, etc and how he kept asking "Am I right?" I just found it pretty funny.

    3rd time lucky for Marat :cool: great game, I just wish it went to five sets but Safin was on fire just too powerful and accurate like when he blew Samprass of the court in the final of the Usopen 01. Now he has 1 month off :mad: lucky him!
