Speed Kills – and Wins!
To get faster, athletes need to perform speed training twice a week in the off-season. An ideal schedule would be to lift on Monday, Wednesday, Friday; and perform speed training on Tuesday and Thursday. Here are seven ways to increase speed:
Do 10 sprints per workout, varying from 10 to 50 yards each
Time your sprints twice per month (record and chart all times)
"Lifting and conditioning for nearly 12 weeks in the summer helped our team make great strides in speed and strength."

Speed Program In-Depth Information
One of the keys to the BFS Speed Training program is the BFS Sprint Technique System. The system consists of the following eight techniques that should be emphasized during sprinting:
Your head should be upright
Your eyes should be fixed, looking straight ahead
Your toes should point straight ahead
Your back should be upright and slightly arched
Your shoulders should rotate vigorously, with the elbows fixed at 90 degree angles
Your wrists should stimulate a whip action as the shoulders rotate back
Your feet should make the initial plant directly under the hips, not out in front of the body
Your forward leg should initially lift forward, not up. The lower leg should hang before planting with the foot and toes up. Your back knee should extend fully on the follow-through, or end-of-the-leg drive
