Bump, set, spike....ouch!!
Here is a sport that has come a long way from the beach and back yard cookouts that most people play it in. Watching these athletes jump, dive and sprint with ease in the sand will make you want to grab some friends, head to the beach and get a game going, right?? Well before you are ready to be "king of the beach" you may want to do some stretching and proper warm up and be prepared for exertion you will have when sprinting, diving and jumping in the sand...not to mention all the sore muscles the next day!

On your marks...get set...
Ever since man first learned to run, being the "fastest man on earth" has always been ultimate title. Now in earlier days, it meant you could outrun your fellow tribesmen as they were getting eaten by a sabertooth tiger and was essential to survival in pure Newtonian terms. Now it has more to do with science...raw speed and power. Watching athletes compete in the 100m is the ultimate...in the blink of an eye people sprinting down the track to victory or defeat. If this doesn't make you want to launch off the couch and go for a run, nothing will (except for maybe that sabertooth tiger!). Before you hit the starting line, read some warm up tips and common injuries by clicking the photo above.
