There are many sports that require running speed and explosiveness for short distances. Baseball player must sprint to first base, a wide receiver in football should work your route at full speed up and even bobsledder must use explosive speed to gain momentum in the race on the track.
In athletics, men’s world record time of 9.77 seconds to the fact that this event, which brings together some of the most amazing athletes in the world of speed.

There are many learning methods that can be applied to improve the overall speed. The athlete should always remember that, in order to become faster, you should run faster. Therefore, the speed of the program of work should be improved and developed in the possibility of doing repetitions.
Medicine ball work is essential, as well as the stability ball exercises. This is important for the preparation of athletes for the speed to mix between the main job with resistance to low reps and the main work of the high repetition, crunches and leg raises.
