How To – Run Faster

0

Are you looking to improve your speed and run faster? You came to the right place! Here’s six steps that have proven time and time again to improve my athletes speed!!

Step 1: Get Stronger

The stronger you are the more force you’re going to be able to apply into the ground with each foot strike. What this does is propel your body further in space. This leads to a longer stride!

Step 2: Improve Mobility & Flexibility

By improving flexibility and mobility in your hips and legs you will be able to improve extension of your hip, knee, and ankle when accelerating.

Step 3: Drag Heavy Sleds

I love heavy sled drags because they allow you to learn and practice acceleration mechanics at slower speeds. To execute this exercise properly you need to posses a forward body lean, and maintain a good positive shin angle

Step 4: Run Hills

Hill sprints will help you run in the correct form of acceleration and improve force application with each foot strike.

Step 5: Skip

In my opinion, skips are one of the best ways to improve sprint technique (arm drive, knee drive, posture, rhythm, etc.)

Step 6: Run Max-Effort Sprints W/Full Recovery

To run fast you need to do just that, run fast. In my opinion, you need to be performing max-effort sprints at least one to two times a week if your goals are to improve speed. Make sure you’re recovery following each sprint! As a general guideline, rest 1 minute for every 10 yards covered.
