Sherman, how has training at goperformance impacted you the most?
The most recognizable improvement is my overall strength. I am much stronger than I was when I started.
What words would you use to describe the workouts?
Intense. Strength Training. Conditioning. Focused
What do you enjoy the most about training at goperformance?
I leave knowing that I am going to improve in my sport. I worked hard and I know that I am improving in my workouts and in track.
Lane, describe the Sherman’s attitude during his workouts?
Sherman is an intellectual learner. He likes to know the “why” behind a workout or a drill. This makes him excel because he learns the concepts and the principles so that can apply them appropriately. He is a fast learner and very coachable.
Lane, what’s the biggest improvement that you’ve seen in Sherman?
His linear speed and his power have increased. He ran a 52 second 400 meter dash last year. I foresee him running the 400 meter in under 50 seconds this year, perhaps even 48 seconds. His 800 meter race was a 1:59 last year and I believe that he will be able to complete that race in 1:55 this year. His mile last year was 4:45. He’s already taken 15 seconds off that early this season in track and it’s down to 4:30.
I hope that this year is an exceptional year for him this year, especially as a senior. He’s worked very hard and I have seen the improvements. I look forward to seeing how he completes this season.
