players are always looking for an edge. One of the most common ways that players
want to see an improvement is through their speed. Speed is a commodity in
sports that has few equals. If a player is fast enough then they will find a
spot on a team sometimes regardless of their height or weight.
talk about speed and acceleration understand that they are 2 completely
different things. Speed is how fast you are in general while acceleration is the
whole concept of how fast it takes to go from 0 to 60. How quick can you get to
top speed? I'm of the belief that certain people are born with the ability to be
fast while others aren't. Now speed can always be improved but I don't think you
can take just anyone and turn them into Usain Bolt. I'm also of the belief that
the first few steps are more important than any others in sports. In basketball,
if you are dealing with a fast player he can be up and down the court in no time
while football is different. The playing field is a lot larger. You have to be
fast and be quick as you move laterally. It isn't easy.
Let's look at 3
ways to effectively build up speed / acceleration and get the most out of what
your body will allow:
1. Know the proper mechanics
watched someone run the other day whose arms went side to side instead of
pulling them forward. The funny part is that this individual was naturally very
fast despite the terrible mechanics that he was using. It's easy for me to see
how fast this person could be if they focused on using the right mechanics. Here
is a rundown of the main mechanics to be aware of:
a. Lean - The body
should have a slight lean forward and not be straight up.
b. Keep your head
still - Don't let your head swing side to side. Keep it as still as
c. Use the balls of your feet - You should run on the balls of your
feet and drive your feet off the ground.
d. Pump your arms - The arms need to
pull you forward so you have to pump them by pushing your elbow backward
Short strides - When you first take off your strides need to be shorter and more
powerful. You must focus on pushing hard off the ground for the first 2-3 steps
to really build your acceleration.
2. Build leg muscles
Weight training should be a part of anyone's game plan who wants to be
fast. To get the most out of what you are given you have to spend time in the
weight room and get stronger legs. The stronger your legs are the more force you
can use to push off the ground.
3. Engage in short, powerful
To build your acceleration and speed you should work on
short sprints to really build that muscle memory up and increase the amount of
contractions that your muscles are making. The game of football involves lots of
short bursts of speed, and very few long sprints. The best way to train is to
get your body use to exploding with tons of energy as you run quick and powerful
