5 Tips To Run Faster

Increase Your Speed & Acceleration

By LA Muscle on 30.07.2019 03:46 pm


If you run regularly, whether it’s just for fun or as part of a sport, chances are you’ve thought about how you can improve your speed and run at a quicker tempo or just improve that initial burst of acceleration. Try some of these tried and tested running tips that are sure to have you speeding up your running times quicker than you think.

1. Sprint Often & For Longer

The most challenging part of any race or sport are the times when you need to spring. A burst of pace is all that’s required and the best way to improve this is the same as most ways; through practice. Every 2-3 days you should be doing some short sprints, no longer than 20-30 minutes is required, and these can be anything from straight sprints to shuttle runs to interval training.

2. Do The Right Weight Training

Weight training is going to strengthen the muscles you need to get more power and stamina to increase your speed and run faster and longer. These will mainly be workouts involving your legs and core muscles but compound exercises with a lower body focus and circuit training will also prove useful.

3. Stretch & Rest

Running has a high impact on your body so daily stretching and regular rest periods are fundamental to your recovery as well as your ability to continue to perform to your desired level and improve over time. Stretching more often, such as morning and night, can also be more beneficial and reduce the risk of injury.

4. Improve Your Form

If you have ever seen a runner training, you would have noticed that a big part of their training involves correcting their form and running technique. If you improve your form then you optimise your muscles and help your body to move better and more effectively which is certain to make you run faster.

5. Focus On Your Breathing

The way you breathe can significantly boost your performance levels and learning how to breathe while running at faster speeds takes practice. Use both your nose and mouth while inhaling and exhaling to get the maximum amount of oxygen to the muscles. Also, you can try belly breathing by filling the diaphragm, not the chest, with air on each inhale.
