Training Tip from Usain Bolt

You need power for the glory
“My favorite exercise in the weights room is the clean,” says Bolt, who sees weight training as a necessary evil. From a standing position, with legs shoulder-width apart, he smoothly lifts the barbell from feet to chest. “I’m not really that good at lifting weights,” he admits. “A lot of people can bench-press 250kg; I probably bench 140kg. I just go heavy enough to develop the muscles. What really matters is what you do out on the track.”
