Speed in an essential component to most sports. Speed endurance is often the overlooked variable to obtaining superior performance results.
The 100- meter race requires speed endurance. So does the longer sprints and middle distance running events.
Team sports like basketball, soccer and even football, require speed endurance.
Speed endurance is the ability to maintain a high intensity running speed over a given distance(100 meters), or the ability to repeatedly perform sprints at a high intensity.
This intensity must be maintained at an intensity greater than 90%.
You can test speed endurance to determine if the athlete requires specific training workouts that emphasize speed endurance. This is also helpful to determine team performance in the off-season and initial pre-season training routine.
