Does antone know how to convert a 10 yard dash time into a 40 yard dash time? Is it even possible?

Why are you asking this? Why would you even do a 10 yard dash?

I don't even think its possible. Based on stride length and frequency too many variables change as you progress in the run. You don't start running in the same posture or position as when you end. It'll also vary per person in their accleration off the start. I, for example, tend to have a very quick start in relation to my finish but plenty of others have a slower start but better form for finishing speed.

Simple: Multiply by 4, divide by your weight in stone, make the federal individual income tax deduction on line 7c, spin around twice, and say "Boogie oogie oggie."

Then go run 40 yards. And time it.

No, there is no reliable conversion formula to a 40 time.

The 10yd dash is a good drill to practice explosive starts and getting off the line.

10 yard dash... all 10s do for you are work your explosiveness and quick start, and cleans will help with that. just go run a 40.

you can't convert a 10 yard dash into a 40, because you are accelerating through at least the 30 yard mark, or even through the entire thing, if you run it right.
