Here's why you want to keep up your sprint training during the season.
Our Sports Scientist Casper Skovgaard made a test on 13 semiprofessional football players during the last 9 weeks of the season. It showed that you can improve your intense running capacity by 12%. The recipe is simple: Do 2-3 sets of 8-10 sprints on a 30 m distance. Follow each sprint with 10 sec of recovery. Each set is followed by 3 min of recovery between sets. So, as little as 7-14 min of additional repeated sprint training during the season can improve the player’s repeated intense running capacity.
