Speed wins, no matter where you play or at what level you play at. Being fast in the modern game is vital.

THE DRILL -

The 40m sprint will allow you to test the most important physical attribute in the modern game - speed. This test will let you know how fast you currently are whilst also giving you a benchmark to improve on.

KEY POINTS -

  • Think about 'Driving the ground away' and taking powerful, purposeful strides during the acceleration phase of this drill

  • As you get to top speed, relax the body, making sure it is upright and stay focused on attacking the ground with each step

  • Make sure you run as fast as you can (finishing through the cones) to record your best possible time and make it a true test
