To run faster and perform more explosively you have to be incredibly strong. Elite sprinters create forces in excess of 7 times their body weight and are able to apply this force in less than a tenth of a second. Getting faster is easy then, right? Get stronger and you’ll run faster. As discussed in previous posts, increasing strength by increasing neural connections and muscle size is the first step to improving speed. However; this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to developing game changing speed.
There are a lot of athletes who can lift a lot of weight, but they aren't very fast. There are additional steps that need to be taken to convert that foundational strength into explosive speed. Okay, It's time to make you faster!
