Run as fast as an NFL Running Back

I found this video very interesting. Former NFL Running Back J.R. Redmond gives tips on how to run a fast 40 yard dash. Not sure if it will give your players that kick they need to run in fast bursts but it’s worth a try.

You can make a game of it with your players, timing them and seeing if they can beat the time they set. You can cut the distance for smaller children or you can set different distances for your fast and slower runners.

Not every player is going to be able to beat their times, but it makes a good five minutes of fitness at your next training session.
