How to Sprint like Usain Bolt

Learn how to sprint like Usain Bolt from sprinting coach Shane Paul Neil in this Howcast video.


Hi. My name is Shane Paul Neil from CityCoarch Multisport, and I'll be talking about how you can be as fast as Usain Bolt.

Being as fast as Usain Bolt is really quite simple. Have the stride length of somebody who's 6 feet 3 inches, coupled with the leg turnover of somebody who's 5 feet 10 inches. Reach a maximum speed of 23 miles an hour in the 100 meter dash, and you too can be as fast as Usain Bolt.

The bottom line is that most of Usain's abilities come from genetics. He was very fortunate that his mother and father gave him the genetic gifts to be who he is today.

Many regard Usain Bolt as a freak of nature. There is no special diet that he has. He's been known to eat fast food, including McDonald's, and other things, on a regular basis. There's no rest or sleep regimen. When he's home in Jamaica, he's known for attending the clubs, and dancing the night away.

All this may sound unorthodox, but it just goes to show how genetically blessed he is.

Not to be misunderstood, he clearly works hard on the track, but his gifts came way before he ever stepped on one.
