Sprinting Workouts: how to improve your maximum speed

SprintingAlthough performing flat out sprints will improve sprint speed when coupled to a relevant sprint training plan, there are various combinations of distances that can take this to a higher level.

Additionally, sprint sessions and competitions, where relevant, should be carefully selected and implemented into the training plan. Failure to do so could result in the athlete becoming drained and performance suffering. Worse still injury could result. It is therefore recommended that – where practical – 24 to 48 hours’ recovery be left between high intensity workouts and competitions.
