    If you go to the gym do leg presses, keep your feet flat on the pad for quads and only use your toes to do your calves. If you aiming to improve speed keep reps to a minimum (e.g. 2 x 10), obviously with high weights. But remember not to overdo it, build up to exercising every other day at most.

    more with exercises such as deadlifts and squats. A belt will also help to prevent injury.
