The best way to get fast is to sprint.

But what should a session look like? Here’s the how you can create your own in 4 steps:

SESSION PREPARATION

  1. Heart Raiser

Begin with a general heart-raiser to increase blood flow to the hamstrings, calves and hips

2. Low-level Plyos

Develop your spring, whilst getting a feel for interacting with the ground i.e. multidirectional pogos

3. Sprint Drills

Utilise sprint drills to develop your specific technical and physical weakness’

4. Sprint

Pick whether you want to focus on acceleration or top-end (you can do a mixture), then use the volume guidelines below:

ACCELERATION

Distance Per Sprint: 5-40m per rep

Rest Per Sprint: 60s per 10m

Distance Per Sprint: 120-240m

TOP-END SPEED

Distance Per Sprint: 6-40m per rep (at top speed)

Distance Per Sprint: 20-60s per 10m

Distance Per Session: 200-300m

EXAMPLE:

Heart Raiser: General dynamic mobility and multidirectional skips x 10minutes

Low-level Pogos: Vertical Pogo Jumps x 2 x 10, Lateral Pogos x 2 x 10, Backwards Pogos x 2 x 10

Sprint Drills: Band Resisted March x 2 x 20m, Band Resisted Bound x 2 x 20m, Alternating Bounds x 4 x 20m

Main Session: 8reps of 20m with 2minutes rest between sets
