If you are like most athletes out there, you are looking for a simple solution. You are looking for training that can simultaneously:

Improve your speed

Increase your strength and power

Get you lean and mean

Raise your endurance levels

All without adding huge amounts of time to your already hectic workout schedule.

And if you are like most athletes, in the quest for this “perfect” training, you have wasted precious time and money on the latest and greatest, hi-tech supplements, exercise equipment, training apparatus and fad diets.

But, the truth is the answer is not really that hard at all. It goes something like this:

1. Find a hill.

2. Start at the bottom.

3. Run up as fast as you can.

4. Walk down.

5. Repeat.

Think this seems too simple? Many people do. But, if you need some convincing, take a look at what hill sprinting has done for these sports legends:

Football legend Walter Payton made hill sprints his bread and butter… they carried him to the NFL rushing record and the Hall of Fame.

Another gridiron great, Jerry Rice ran legendary “make you puke” hill sprints… and was still playing in the NFL at age 40.

Running back Marcus Allen… all he did was win the Heisman and become Super Bowl MVP with hill sprints.

Linebacker Junior Seau has played 17 years in the NFL and made over 1200 tackles using hill sprints… sometimes while carrying a partner on his back.

Defensive end Simeon Rice stays relentless in the 4th quarter due to his hill sprint training… he has 119 sacks in 11 years to show for it.

Jets running back Curtis Martin – who rushed for 1000 yards in each of his first 10 seasons and has over 100 career touchdowns – regularly runs the hills of Santa Monica, California during the offseason.

Even Lance Armstrong – although on a bike – has made hill sprints a staple of the training that won him 7 Tour de France titles.

And that’s not all… besides these incredible athletes, plenty of people who need to stay in top shape run hill sprints. From old time strongmen to police and fire departments, from the elite military forces of the world to Olympic sprinters and from NBA stars to baseball’s best… all know the secret power of this training. Yes, the toughest of the tough use hill sprints to stay strong, powerful and in tip-top shape.

Give them a shot and get ready for some serious results.
