So many athletes want to sprint faster but mistakenly turn their speed training session into CONDITIONING. Other times they just don’t understand the principles of speed training. They think that the more they “run” the better. When it comes to improving speed, it’s about quality over quantity.

To maximize speed development, you need to train three components: Top-end speed, Acceleration, and Speed Endurance. Sprinting is also a skill that needs to be developed. The most efficient way to sprint faster is to practice SPRINTING FASTER.

Here is a 3-Day Speed Training Program that will help any athlete get faster. It involves sprint training, plyometrics, and weight training.
