How good you are at sprinting depends on how fast your muscles react and not how strong they are. To do this, you need to target and condition your fast twitch muscle fibres because they’re responsible for speed and agility. Try these leg drills: Low knee lifts, high knee lifts and tapping. All these exercises should be done in fast, short-burst movements in order to work your fast twitch muscle fibres. Another way to condition your leg muscles for speed is by running down a slope. This forces your legs to run faster than usual and it is that intensity that you need to be conditioned to. Repeat five to six times.
