Take up boxing or some other contact fighting sport. I do capoeria which is all about reacting to the other persons' moves. The more you get hit the quicker you'll react in the future.

Just a thought - i'm sure they'll be other suggestions.

This may be bogus, but I have a friend who claims she improved her reflexes through acupuncture.

Here is a good trick that serveral people here might know of...

First take one coin and flip it in to the air and catch it...
Then take anouther and add to the first coin (place one on top of the other) then flip each of them in to the air and catch both with one hand.
Then try flipping three coins stacked on top of each other in to the air and catching them...Keep trying this until you can catch more coins each time.....

I personaly am faster than ALOT of people i know...and i can flip and catch 2 coins with one hand easily. And usualy catch three coins with one hand as well..

Youll find when you practice some you get quicker. I used to only be able to catch two coins and now i can catch three with practicly no difficulty.

Not only does this help your speed/reflexes it helps your hand eye cordination....

Anouther thing that helps is being able to focus and push yourself to move faster....
I know plenty of people who could maybe keep up with me in a short sprint....the thing is....if both of us are in shape sooner or later either me or the other person will get in to a mindset that will allow that person to pass the other....By simply using your mind to make your limbs move faster than your thoughts....you see...by actualy thinking about your thoughts of moving you are making yourself go slower....dont think about moving simply move.

play video games. then go exercise. Seriously, video games give you constant feedback at very fast speeds. That teaches your mind and your eye to react faster. To get your body to keep up, go out and do things. Move faster, work at it. If you have any excess weight, lose it.

FOund this. Take some drugs and increase your speed.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine supercharges speed and performance

Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an amino acid derivative that occurs naturally in the body. It transports fats to the mitochondria (the energy producing structures inside cells), and is also available as a dietary supplement.

Dozens of studies have been done showing that Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) supercharges cellular energy production in order to maximize memory, health, and longevity. In order to prove that ALC has a positive impact on young people, as well as old, Italian researchers tested 17 healthy young men and women aged 22 to 27. Ten of them were physically active and played competitive sports regularly. Seven of them were pretty much sedentary and rarely exercised. Each one was given either 1500 mg. of ALC or a placebo for 30 days, and tested before and after treatment using a video game-type device designed to evaluate attention span and eye-hand coordination and reflexes.

The group that took ALC had a markedly increased reflex speed. That group also had a reduced number of errors and shorter task completion time by three to four times over the group that took the placebo. No one had any negative side effects.12 What a great way for active, young people to increase their performance speed and reflex time!

Other than that, I couldn't really find any definete reflex speed increasers. It looks like it's an innate ability of your body. You can increase your reaction time by practicing situations that you want to be faster at resulting in a faster "reflex" but you can't actually increase the speed of the reflex itself.
