Absolutely. I kill on the counterattack especially and when the other player does not have a good first touch, it's easy to win the ball.

apparently yesterday when we were doing speed training i ran a 4.5
i dont know how accurate this is, although there were two coaches there and one was overly impressed and said good run, while the other was just in charge of the stop watch

the last time we timed our selves it was a consistent 4.7-4.8 and whatnot

if 4.5 holds up then that's one hell of an improvement

I highly doubt that. I can see 4.3+, but Chris Johnson (the fastest RB in the NFL) had a 4.24. Anyways, I think I'm around 5.0 if I remember correctly.

clearly he just said he got to jog so most of the acceleration part wasn't there. obviously the fastest guy started from a dead stop.

Never done a 40 yard sprint, only americans really do that.

I know i can run 16 yards in about 1.5 from a dead start which is pretty fast in all fairness. Im 16, play for a under 18 team and am still by miles the fastest player on the team and rarely when we play other teams i don't really think any defenders keep up with me, so im pretty proud of my speed.

The last 100m i done was 2 years ago and i ran a 13.1 which i thought was good as i was only 14 at the time. Id say i could be looking to break the 11 second mark soon as ive improved and grown alot since i was 14. Future first whiteman to break 10 second barrier?;) lool.

I doubt that.....Usain bolt runs his first 10 meters in 1.85 seconds......so I think your timing is way off....

Anyone who is running close to 4.5 or under, I wish I had your speed. I don't know if its all the weight training lately but I feel a bit bulky. I'm explosive from a dead stop or light movement, I noticed I have a great acceleration over a small distance but when I hit full stride I'm not so fast. Maybe its because I do all my speed training in a 25 yard long stretch in my backyard.

I doubt many of these times are accurate though.....Probably most of the members who say they run a 4.5 are either lying or mistimed it....

Meh it wasn't my timing. Team mate done for me when we were doing our fitness training. And come to think of it its actually not 16 yards because the pitch we done it on wasn't full size so its probably 10ish yards? not entirely certain...

in 2006 i ran 5.0 when i tried out for an american football team, it was electronic so maybe 5.1 or 4.9 who knows, now, im probably running 4.8 or something, i have never been very quick..

i guess if you run the 40 like 10 times, well rested each time, with a stopwatch, you can see a pettern for example 4.60, 4.56, 4.66, etc.. you can conclude that your time is somewhere around 4.60.. i know plenty guys that have lo 4s, its really an exciting test.

4.9 isn't exactly slow. Lets assume you run 10 yards in the first 2 seconds as thats from a stand still, this means you make up 30 yards in another 3 secondsish, thats still bloody fast as if you kept that speed up for a whole race you would get a -11 second 100 meter time.
