Speed reading can be compared with physical training in a metaphorical way. Like athletes who develop physical skills to use in their sport, the speed reader needs their reading muscle (metaphorical) to be in good condition. Same like other muscles, your reading muscle (metaphorical) needs training and this will benefit you the reader in many ways.

Eyes can get exhausted very quickly and this makes reading a challenge. A good technique is to give your eyes rest between training or reading sessions. Do not strain the muscles too much because with training, you will be able to develop your muscles eventually.

You must use conditioning drills to increase horizontal peripheral vision span and the number of words registered per fixation.

Untrained subjects use central focus but not horizontal peripheral vision span during reading, foregoing up to 50% of their words per fixation. These drills help strengthen your reading muscle (metaphorical)
