In order to get the speed you want on the field, track, or court, running with the correct form is vital.

I’m constantly asked by my clients how the fastest athletes in the world today train. So in response to these questions, here are some drills to help you improve your running form.

Wall Drills

Wall Push

The best drills for speed are wall drills. They are great for technique, get you in the proper angles for running, and put you in a situation where your toes, ankles, knees, and hips are in the correct position.

Directions

1. Face a wall with your feet placed directly under your hips.
2. Stretch your arms out directly in front of your chest so they are pressing against the wall.
3. With your body now angled, drive you knee up and then down — alternating between legs at a quick pace.
