Increase Foot Speed and Run Faster

Speed work doesn't need to be painful or long and daunting. If you want to shave time off of your pace, train smart and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Combine Compex electric muscle stimulator foot speed training with your normal speed drills to run fast. Prioritize the muscle groups you want to strengthen and which would benefit the most from recovery. To improve foot speed, Compex recommends your focus be on quads, hamstrings, glutes and calves. Remember to turn it up during each contraction.
