Thread: Speed training

I've been training using a Start-timer, usually 3 times per week (see http://starttimer.mysite.orange.co.uk ) and find that my playing speed has improved dramatically. My concern is that I may be neglecting my long term aerobic fitness, all my training being geared to speed work.
Does anyone else share my concerns?

I hope you didn't actually go out and buy that thing...
Anyhow, keep going with the speed work until it stops improving rapidly. Don't worry about the fitness, it's not like you're sitting around eating doughnuts when you train like this.

If you really want to train for speed, then you need a high rest/work ratio.
For example, you might do 10-20 seconds of high intensity exercise, followed by a minute's rest.
It's physically impossible to exercise at maximum intensity with a low rest/work ratio. You might think that you're going all-out for 15 minutes, but actually you are working at a lower intensity.
Different rest/work ratios complement different intensities of exercises, and help to develop different energy systems.

Everything needs to be improved. Speed, stamina, concentration, power, etc... it depends on your strength and weaknesses. Always good to get someone to see your game and give comments.
