    I guess you could use to loosen a tight muscle as you are warming up but I use the warm up itself to loosen the tight muscle. For my speed days the warm up takes around 30 minutes or so. It depends on how I am doing and when I feel ready and also the temperature outside, but it is cooler in the mornings ofcourse so I make sure I am ready.

    What have you done to solve the collapsing of the support knee?
    What is your reasoning behind not using the drills for team athletes? I use the sprint sessions to improve my speed solely. I don't do any specific work (save that for specific skill sessions and soccer games) except just the warm up where I do high intensity dribbling. So I try my best to train like a sprinter on those occasions and with proper mechanisms and everything.

    Arm mechanics (non existent)
    Foot lands way infront of centre of gravity
    moving forwards way too fast

    Perhaps he is a beginner ??
