There’s only two ways to get faster:
Increase stride length
Increase stride frequency
Both of those however, are BYPRODUCTS of sprinting faster.
Meaning for example I can’t just TELL an athlete to take bigger strides, because if they’re not physically capable of increasing their stride length, they’ll actually be slower.
In order to improve speed then, an athlete must do 3 things:
Apply more mass specific force into the ground
In the proper bio-mechanical positions
In ever decreasing increments of time
We'll look at each point in detail over the next 3 weeks: speed is a skill, it can be trained!
