Not by me. A man has to know his limitations, and I still have flashbacks to running quarters twenty five years ago in track.

But some legit strong people try it

I believe Dan once linked a video of Russian or German school kids doing a version of Litvinovs that were comprised of front squatting kettlebells followed by a 100-200m run. Since front squatting 405 is out of the question I decided to try double 24's and 100m. Counting the 100m walk back I did two complete sets. I was able to do the eight squats on the third but my legs did strange things upon starting the third 100, there was a schism between my hip flexors and glutes. It was a strange sensation. Not enough oxygen getting anywhere in the body. The next day wasn't bad but two days out was dicey

Our track coach in high school was convinced that there was no event in T&F that 400m repeats weren't the answer to. As a result there were plenty of tired legs on meet day and injuries. A man indeed has to know his limitations. I'm glad I did the session and while I try not to use age as an excuse it would have been interesting to try something like 135 lbs and 200m back in my mid-20's to see how much I could have tolerated before tapping out.

The old article from Dan popped up on T-Nation today. Great video, thanks for sharing, highly entertaining. Freezing cold with the wind, too.

For us middle aged geezers, a double front squat with 45's or 55's and a 50 yard hill sprint would seem like a great leg day.

For some reason, it made me think of Dan's The Eagle with the 8 squats and farmer's walks. Should have titled the book, Simple and Miserable

I give Jujumufu a lot of credit, for putting himself out there like that.

Sprintfs.
"I think we often spend too much time focusing on max fitness
and not nearly enough on maintaining our minimums.
It seems we need to think sustainable rather than obtainable.
Meaning whatever we do today, we can do it again tomorrow.
Never taking so much from ourselves that we can't."

The Litvi Sprints gave me leg power like nothing else! Of course my weight bar was only 90 lbs. But 8 reps and the hill sprint - 3 sets, worked wonders on me.
Great video.
