Course Introduction: Training for Speed

But sprint training is about much more than completing drills and honing technique. It takes specific training done with the right timing, intensity and focus to achieve top-end speed. Coach Harnden shares his overarching philosophies for fostering speed progression while reducing the risk of injury through a season.
