Question: Will interval training get you faster?
Answer: NO…….and here is why:
Interval training can help you improve endurance…which you may need trying to chase down the faster athlete before he/she scores.
Speed work is defined at 2-8 seconds of maximal intensity effort / running. An athletes body needs at least 2 minutes of recovery before energy stores are replenished enough to allow the athlete to focus on proper form and deliver maximum intensity in order to get faster. If they do not recover properly from each interval, they will not be able to replicate proper mechanics with consistency and they can not improve speed.
