Mark off in a straight line, about 1 meter/yard apart.
The next 10 should be 2 meters/yards apart.
2. From standing start sprint the total length to the first mark taking one step between each marker.
3. The marks close together will encourage faster, shorter strides. You can gradually decrease the distance between marks as you progress. Walk slowly back to the start to recover.
The basis of this drill is a 10-20 meter/yard sprint. You should focus on accelerating as quickly as possible by powering away with your arms and legs.
This drill requires you to mark out distance of about 100 yards/meters where you can sprint in a straight line. You also need to mark a halfway point either with some landmark or a mark on the ground. Starting at one end, gradually accelerate to reach full speed at the halfway point and continue to sprint to the end. Slow down gradually to a jog, turn and walk/jog back to the start.
