^^ What he said.

And although the hams do most of the concentric work while sprinting the Quads do a lot of eccentric work so they get hit hard too [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I would not recommend replacing a leg workout with sprints but they are a great way to increase the frequency of lower body work. Sprinting has been one of the few methods that work to bring my calves up to par, i have seen huge changes in them since i started sprinting.

"The truth Iíve discovered is that you donít have to lift enormous weights to grow muscle. By using stricter form, slower negatives, and stretching between sets you can get an incredible pump in all your workouts. Numbers are an abstraction, especially to muscles. Your body doesnít know the absolute weight of what you lift, it only recognizes how heavy it feels. The secret is to make lighter weights feel heavier. " - Frank Zane

"Sacrifice: To give up, destroy, renounce, and surrender your ego, excuses, bad habits, fears, and your couch - in the belief of an ideal or pursuit of a worthy goal."

"All thing are possible to him who believes." -Mark 9:23
