To get faster, athletes need to perform speed training twice a week in the off-season. An ideal schedule would be to lift on Monday, Wednesday, Friday; and perform speed training on Tuesday and Thursday. Here are eight ways to increase speed:
- Do 10 sprints per workout, varying from 10 to 50 yards each
- Time your sprints twice per month (record and chart all times)
- Do Flexibility Training six times a week. Visit the "BFS Flexibility" Playlist
- Perform Plyometrics twice per week
- Perform the Parallel Squat and the Power Clean
- Perform the Straight-Leg Deadlift
- Download the BFS 1,2,3,4 Flexibility Program
"Lifting and conditioning for nearly 12 weeks in the summer helped our team make great strides in speed and strength."
Matt Gilmer, Holy Family High School, 2005 State Champions, Football, Broomfield, Colorado
One of the keys to the BFS Speed Training program is the BFS Sprint Technique System. The system consists of the following eight techniques that should be emphasized during sprinting:
- Your head should be upright
- Your eyes should be fixed, looking straight ahead
- Your toes should point straight ahead
- Your back should be upright and slightly arched
- Your shoulders should rotate vigorously, with the elbows fixed at 90º angles
- Your wrists should stimulate a whip action as the shoulders rotate back
- Your feet should make the initial plant directly under the hips, not out in front of the body
- Your forward leg should initially lift forward, not up. The lower leg should hang before planting with the foot and toes up. Your back knee should extend fully on the follow-through or end-of-the-leg drive
