I love how the article actually says "WATCH IT HERE!"

...and then doesn't have a single video on the entire page.

Well done.

Most treadmills only go up to 12 or 15 mph. I don't think it will be a problem.

This guy runs 25mph on his treadmill at least once a week.

The video with the white guy is clearly going much, much faster then the video with the black guy. I know, <thatsracist.jpg>

CSB: My treadmill goes up to 12MPH (5:00/mi pace). 1/4 mile at that pace is just brutal.

/ Fast treadmill stunts are just asking for injury...

I'd post my video of running 30 MPH backwards, but I'm heading to the gym in 26 minutes.

Wow, he's done this twice now...

Because treadmills are always so accurate.

The top speed on a treadmill is 0... always has been, always will be.

/Now... who here likes a good story about a bridge?
 
2013-07-03 12:20:51 PM
Still pretty cool, even if they do only run for a few seconds.
 
2013-07-03 12:23:25 PM
Yeah I call shenanigans. Very few treadmills in the world go that fast (only specialized high-speed ones), and hitting that speed with your feet from a standstill is near-impossible and incredibly dangerous.

My guess is that was closer to 15-18 MPH. Still looks impressive though.
 
2013-07-03 12:26:33 PM
Still slower than DARPA's robot

Do you have No Script on?  Both videos show up for me once I allow scripts on the page.

I think it's faster than that.  You don't have to worry too much about acceleration time when you don't have to get your mass up to speed.  I'm striding it out more than really sprinting at 15 mph and I'm not 1/1000th of the athlete that guy is.  It is a dumb stunt.  I don't know what it does for you that track work wouldn't except if you misstep you'll hurt yourself.

I doubt most people would die from falling off a treadmill.  Even at 25 MPH.

Good luck finding a consumer grade treadmill that goes anywhere near 25mph.

cue the shirtless dumbasses who get on a maxed out treadmill, only to immediately have their feet swept out from under them, face plant on the speeding belt, have the seam's metal staples grab their moobs and peel the epidermis off their torsos, while their so-called friends laugh like jackals and render no assistance whatsoever.

Humans can't run that fast, so what gives?  I don't know much about the subject.
 
2013-07-03 12:58:58 PM
What does any of this have to do with Aaron Hernandez?
 
2013-07-03 01:01:49 PM
That's some impressive treadmilling, but I've seen better.

Myria: Humans can't run that fast, so what gives?  I don't know much about the subject.


Obviously:

"The fastest human footspeed on record is 44.72 km/h (27.79 mph), seen during a sprint (average speed between the 60th and the 80th meter) by Usain Bolt."

Now, as others have pointed out, treadmill running at that speed is different than ramping up and getting to that speed on the ground for even a second or two like a Bolt can do.   But, certainly an athlete in elite condition whose specialty is speed could pull it off for 3-4 seconds, like this guy did.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TV_KM8zYFsk#at=10


Here are the words I see highlighted, which could be a link:

"PHOTOS: Sports nuts: Famous fans" (could this be it? Hmm probably not)
"told AZ Central Sports" (this... doesn't look like a link to it, looks like a citation)
"tweeted" (this is a tweet)
"from NFL on Fox" (this also doesn't allude to being the video)
"tweeted today" (another twitter link?)
"to another" (yet another twitter link)
"amiably replied" (twitter link. Twitter owns these guys, right?)
"offered" (twitter)
"WATCH: Little dog narrowly avoids getting crushed by the Tour de France!" (could... this be a video of an athlete running on a treadmill? Doesn't seem likely)
"agreed" (twitter again!)
"PHOTOS: Hot guys of the NFL"
(unlikely this is it)

So please tell me how I'm being a "pussy", and exactly which link contains the two videos they allude to? Mind you the picture at the top is not clickable.

Thanks for posting the link though to the actual video, and not a Twitter feed link.

I know everyone is familiar with running with resistance to gain speed: weights, parachutes, etc...   But a lot of people don't know that even when you train like that, mentally one's pace itself is difficult to train.  The video looks like he's doing it a bit on a lark, but high speed downhills or treadmill is one of those methods where one can 'force' the brain and muscles to train at a higher that 'natural' speed of which the long term effects, if done right, are a a higher comfortable pace for a given activity.

He should've used that speed of his and ran away from that gold-digging AW before he got married to her.

Rough numbers but a 4.0 second 40 would be about 20 MPH. From the combine WR had speeds of 4.27 to 4.9. A 25 MPH burst would be a fun way to ignite some fun competition, as shown in the twitter conversation.
