Why take it out to 60-70m?

Do I need to train every muscle to improve my sprint speed? Thx

If you're doing this for basketball, keep in mind that the longest straight distance you will ever have to run is 25-30 meters. You might want to throw in some change of direction sprints (down and back for time) to prepare for the rapid deceleration to rapid acceleration that comes with playing basketball.
Where is Issue 58?
