Is there any video on Chuck Norris versus Bruce Lee?
The short answer is simple: Speed is first developed in the mind, sending signals to your muscles to activate them, the more you do something the faster you become because the more signals your brain sends to activate more muscle fibers, this is why a little strength training will go a long way as well( dont over do it though) secondly, relax, tension will slow you down as well, plyometric exercises wil compliment the resistance/strength trainging tremendously it builds explosive power, dont over do it too much on your training or itll be harder to accel further in speed training, finally look at your technique and try to find the most efficient(sp?) way to execute it, remember the straightest line is the fastest, not always the strongest though, but we are talking about speed here. thats the basics.
