Informative live chat on everything speed training, speed workouts, and speed development.
I sprinted 3 times a week for the last two months and dropped about 25 lbs of body weight while keeping my other lifts up.
This week I explained the big difference between max speed and acceleration and gave everyone a free acceleration / deceleration workout to use.
Acceleration and deceleration should make up the majority of your speed training for athletes. An athlete will spend much more time accelerating and stopping quickly over time spent at max speed during a sporting event.
The muscles and body action at max speed are somewhat different than the muscles used during acceleration.
