Everybody in sports wants to know how to sprint faster on the track, court, or field.
But the problem is that most athletes don’t actually train for pure speed.
Most “speed” training is completely misguided. I’ve seen videos of “speed” workouts online that have absolutely no value for getting anyone faster.
Training for pure speed is not high-volume conditioning workouts.
Training for speed is not bodybuilding.
Training for speed is not running through an agility ladder
Training for speed is not performing tempo runs with short recoveries.
Training for speed puts the top priority on speed.
Putting the emphasis on true speed training is important but there is something else that must put a major emphasis on as well.
There is one thing that you can do, starting today that will increase your performance in your next sprinting workout.
Doing this one thing is directly connected to sprinting performance because it will have your central nervous system super refreshed and powerful.
A fresh CNS is a major key to sprinting faster and you will literally feel like the Flash when you hit the track because your battery will be completely recharged.
The only thing that can an athlete can do to completely recharge their central nervous system is to sleep.
Track athletes must get quality sleep to sprint at a high level. Bet many athletes skimp on sleep and predictably do not sprint as fast on the track.
If you are not serious about prioritizing sleep, then you are not serious about getting faster.
You will not be able to ever reach your maximum speed without it.
In my series, the how to sprint faster we are going to dive into the 5 components that will enable you to maximize your speed.
If you want to perform better on the track I suggest you learn how to sprint faster begin by watching the video above.
