Resisted Overspeed Runs

• Attach elastic band or tubing around waist and have partner apply steady resistance behind you
• Sprint 10 to 15 yards against resistance, then sprint 10 more yards after partner releases resistance

Reps/Rest: 2/ 90 seconds
Benefits: Acceleration, proper running form
Fournier: If you don’t accelerate to keep up when the resistance is released, you will fall flat on your face. We make sure footwork is correct, and that they have a good body lean when they begin accelerating.
