Jim,

This is really good article.

 

A University of Georgia study compared hill verus horizontal running and found that hill running recruited 6% more muscle firing in the gastroc, gracilis, and semimembraneous as compared to horizontal sprints. Why incorporate hill training if your an athlete? Of all the resisted conditions that can be used for speed development which include; ankle weights, weight vest, sled pull, tire pull, parachute and sand, hills offer an individual or especially a team the economic solution to being faster.

Great Study. This can really help alot of athletes with leg strength without lifting weights. Strengthcoach.
