This study deals with a training scheme, including a scooter with an attached rear shield and an athlete (student) moving behind the shield in the rarefied air stream. The movement is performed on the stadium track. A fair reduction in air resistance allows the athlete to develop running speeds, far surpassing those achieved by them in standard conditions. Addiction of the athlete (student) to moving with such speed allows them to develop the fast running reflex. It is known, that overspeed running stimulates neuromuscular system to adapt to contracting at higher rates, thereby improving stride rate and maximum velocity of running. Speed qualities developed in this way are important not only in athletics, but also in relevant sports, such as soccer, tennis, etc. Let us note, that currently overspeed is obtained by pulling an athlete with cords and elastic bands. Treadmills are also used in large training centers. However, the use of mentioned technologies is expensive and may have unfavorable effects on running technique. This study proposes a new approach to overspeed training. The authors borrowed a principle of cyclists’ movement - motion “on the wheel.” At that, the rider moving in the front creates the rarefied air flow for the rider moving behind close to the leader. Methodology to use the scheme “scooter-shield-runner” for increasing speed qualities of students was tested by the authors at the physical education classes in B.N. Yeltsin Ural Federal University, Ekaterinburg, and is recommended for implementation in the educational and training processes.
