Hi its me agin im 14 i just ran my race and won the 400mdash in 66seconds and im a girl is that good?

No it won't help you get faster at running. The load is too light to have a great general strengthening effect. Also, no matter how fast you do them, it will not match the speed at which your muscles contract during a sprint, so it will not have a specific training effect either.

Don't worry about fast-twitch/slow-twitch, you can't really control that directly. Just focus on running faster.


If you want to get your legs strong enough to make a difference you have to do real squats with a bar and more weight and have it on your shoulders.
