What do the 40 yard dash, hurdles, the mile, pole vaulting, high jump, long jump, discuss, and the shot put have in common? They all require strength in the entire body. Basically, Track and Field comes down to who can run the fastest, jump the highest and throw the farthest. Being able to run fast doesn’t just take great leg strength, but it also takes a strong core and strong arms to drive the body. Of course throwing takes arm and shoulder strength, but it also takes strong legs to push the core to release the strength through the shoulders and arms. So you see that Track and Field requires athletes to have a strong body not just strength in particular body parts.
