Power up your sprint speed

Targeted exercises to improve your explosive runs on the pitch can make a huge difference, and the fitness brains at Back2Action have developed three absolute crackers.


There’s a resisted partner band run (where a teammate can take great pleasure in trying to slow you down), a superbly controlled exercise using slide-outs that will get you driving your legs faster and enhance your core, and a great squat-jump drill reacting to a friend dropping a football, that will boost your jumps and reactions. Get ready to hit top speed…
