Q

"How do I increase my 40 yard dash time?"

A
To increase your 40 yard dash times there are a few things that you should work on.

Reaction time (speed) and explosiveness (power): Getting off the line as fast a possible
-You can improve this with practice.
-drills that recruit fast twitch fibres such as using an agility ladder-to get the feet moving fast
-box jumps/plyometics- to work on explosiveness
-weights such as deadlifts, step ups, squats and other lower/leg work outs are helpful as well for building strength which will lead to power. .

The goal to a quicker overall time is to get off the line as fast as possible and reach max speed as fast a possible.
