    Speed for what? As in you want to be more explosive for powerlifting or you want to be able to run fast?

    I would think squats and leg presses would aid in your speed. Although I think the best training for this would be a sled or that type of resistance training (if a sled is avialable to you)

    do a google search for "westside for skinny bastards" there is a ton of stuff in there. I would definitly read it. It has a linear speed day, agility day, weights on others, etc.

    a lot of football guys do the program to improve their 40 time.

    ^^^What this guy said...also remember to do a lot of power exercises and core work i.e. power cleans, hangs, snatches (if you have good form), deads, squats, box squats...and run some stairs, and then just run 10's and 40's in general...hope that helps, peace!

    i am currently training for my 40 yard dash time and i am also a solid 4.4 guy but i am trying to get into the 4.3's by the end of this summer. what i do for speed is, in this order, fast feet movements on stairs or flat ground for turnover, then i do a lot of plyos for explosion both single leg and two leg plyos, then i sprint with a sled 4x20 yards then 4x40 yards then i do overspeed with a bunji pulling me for 60 yards and i do that 2 times. from there i left weights, power or hang cleans, sinlge leg squats, lunges, deadlifts and RDL's....do this twice a week and i'm sure youll see huge improvements.
