Does somebody have an awesome sprint workout?
I live close to a 100m long field. What's a good sprint workout I can do there to really tire me up? Should I just sprint the 100m walk back and repeat?
If so, how many times would you recommend?
Here's a good one with six weeks of training laid out:

That might be pretty tough for some people though.
One that I love for beginners is:
1. Warm up with walking and light/medium jogging for about 10 minutes.
2. 100%, all-out sprint for 100m.
3. Jog back 100m at 50% speed.
4. Rest 1-3 minutes.
5. Repeat steps 2-4. The number of times you repeat this depends on what you feel you can handle. Keep adding on to this when you can.
For beginners, I recommend 1 or 2 sprints. Do that for a couple of weeks. Then, add a sprint. Just keep adding one every few weeks. It's an extremely simple plan that works great for building sprinting strength. You can do it a one, two, or even three times a week. Yes, PBF only recommends sprinting once every 7-10 days, but the body can easily adapt and recover from sprinting more often than that.
