Overspeed training fails from the past

The search for speed training opportunities

I have observed previous training sessions by innovative and progressive coaches searching for methods for their athletes to train with the stimulus of overspeed.

Two examples falling into the overspeed training fails of the month include.

Towed behind a motorbike

Bungee cords and kids

Another classic example of well intentioned, but ultimately doomed to fail overspeed training, has been to tow children behind a stretched bungee cord.  

In the last example witnessed online, the children took one step, were overpowered by the bungee cord, tripped and ended up being pulled face first along the turf.

Not a great way to keep them engaged in sprint training!!!
