The King of Sprint Tests

This is the king of the sprint tests. When an athlete accomplishes the requirements below, rest assured, a coach can comfortably announce, “This man is in shape!”

 

Field set up: 

Start your sprint from the 20 yard line and sprint 40 yards. Once finished walk to the opposite 20 yard line and sprint back.

  Drill

GOAL:

Your goal is to run 10 sprints within 5/10ths of your lifetime best forty. The rest interval is 20 seconds between each sprint.

How a timer counts the rest interval between sprints: As soon as the athlete crosses the forty yard line the rest interval begins. Immediately the timer records the time and begins counting 20-19-18-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-hand-on -the- line-2-1- go.

The athlete must achieve all ten sprints to be considered fit, anything less than ten is failure.
