Help me with my acceleration and speed

Hi I play the snake for my team and I do really good when I get in off break. But as we get better the competition gets better and I am having problems making it to my bunker clean.

My question is what should I do to help boost my speeds and acceleration?

you could do hill sprints or sprint drills for speed

stronger legs will results in acceleration increase so workout your legs

Assuming you lift, improve your squat strength first and foremost. Focus on explosion, even the the jump of making warmups jump squats.

Also clean and jerk.

thoroughly foam roll and lacrosse ball your legs to loosen your fascia.

Focus on concentric exercise, especially reactive. The most important thing is training your nervous system to be fast.

50-100m sprint, rest, sprint, rest, ect keep track of your splits and stop when you're times drastically drop off. Do warm up and cool down light jogs.

Squats are good low impact exercises to strengthen the legs, but you want to increase turnover with sprinting too so you have to do sprint training.

You actually think everyone plays clean in tournaments? Hell every one of us wiped when we took 2nd at world cup, and we laughed at the bar with the rest of the teams when we were swapping tips on wiping

I'm guessing you are around 16. Someday, you will look back and laugh at how ridiculous taking paintball seriously really is.

Dude, let him do what he wants. I think his attitude regarding cheating is admirable. Paintball is a lot of fun AND a legitimate sport when handled correctly. The dude came into the FITNESS section to get BETTER at what this ENTIRE WEBSITE is about, so OBVIOUSLY he takes it seriously.

Like, really, come on. He didn't do ANYTHING wrong. Nor was he a dick in his response. Can we for once just help people out without pretending this is ****ing bodybuilding.com

Apologies, Sammy. They know not what they do. Try some of these:

Finding passion in life and being competitive are pretty serious things in my book, whether it's sports, career, whatever.
