# 113 – Speed Training

CHALK TALK – EPISODE # 113 – Speed Training 

Speed is more than just sprinting as fast as you can! Speed, especially within the context of athletics, is a multifaceted skill that needs to be developed and practiced.

We first break down the benefits of a comprehensive strength and conditioning program to speed development and then look at the things we can be doing on the field to help develop our speed training.

From there, we break down and define 5 key elements to speed training: 1) Technique 2) Acceleration & Power 3) Deceleration 4) Max Velocity 5) Change Of Direction. Check out this excellent discussion that comes at the same time as we approach summer workouts and PLT4M’s newly released speed training program.
