After 7 months of hard work, I can finally say that the new SPEED training system is here!
Joe DeFranco, Mike Guadango and myself have literally devoted the last half of 2012 to this latest project and we are extremely proud of the new DVD and manual.
It represents our view on SPEED training for team sport athletes. What you’ll see is that – even though the system is built on proven SPEED training principles – it is very unique in it approach.
Team sport athletes must be able to accelerate, decelerate and change direction in non-optimal, random situations. To improve their potential on the field – operational output – we must training them accordingly.
In the new SPEED system, you will learn:
- Learn about 15 years of recorded data that proved the most effective, time-efficient way to train for speed…guaranteed!
- Technical considerations when sprinting and proven coaching cues!
- The role that acceleration and max velocity play in different team sports and how to improve them.
- Learn how, when and why to train each of the 3 different energy systems and their positive or negative effects on speed.
- The controversial TRUTH about how to improve agility!
- Does aerobic training kill your speed training efforts or can it actually be beneficial?
- Learn how to improve an athlete’s “maximal outputs” and its effect on “game speed.”
- Detailed speed training Warm-ups and Workouts from the training logs of our pro athlete clients!
- Learn the benefits of incorporating “tempo work” into your programming.
- Special Strength Training (SST) methods for Speed revealed!
- Learn how to integrate speed into “Westside for Skinny Bastards” and “High/Low” programs!
- Step-by-step tutorial on how to teach our legendary 40-yard dash stance and shave one to two-tenths off your 40 time instantly!
