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.
