The ground!

No seriously, find a foeld that is measured out. Speed is all about how much force you can put into the ground and how fast that force is applied. So make starts and short distance sprints a regular part of your program and you will do well.

During a strength block do more heavy lifting, and high intensity plyos (altitude drops) and 10-20 yard starts Then in a speed block do some dynamic lifting (a la WSB and olympic lifts- if you have a good coach), depth jumps, low intensity plyos, and longer sprints like 40-60 yards.
