What is SPEED, and how do you get Faster?
Well let's break this down, the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines SPEED:
1) prosperity in an undertaking
2) the act or state of moving swiftly
Hmmm... (Scratching my head)
If we look at the definition, it really doesn't say top end quickness or explosive first step. Isn't that what we really want to acheive in our athletes we train? I know my goal, is to make my clients the best all around athlete on the field, period! So, what are these "Speed Camps" really selling to all these parents, athletes and coaches?
They are selling a "DREAM"... Because, how can running around some cones or tapping your toes in a plastic and nylon ladder on the floor make you Faster? They DON'T!!! They make you better at running around cones and tapping your toes in a plastic and nylon ladder. Don't get me started on freakin' Parachutes and Bungee Cords, WTF!
Top End "SPEED" and an Explosive First Step is increased thru resistance exercises, such as Squats, Deadlifts, Cleans, Snatches and Plyometrics...
Mass x Acceleration = FORCE
Velocity x Force = POWER
Thru a proper weight lifting program coupled with good Coaching, we can help our Athletes develop the Strength and Power that will transfer to "on the field" SPEED and Quickness!
Not only will a proper weight lifting program make Athletes...Bigger, Stronger and Faster...it will also help them from getting injured, and if they are injured it will aide in recovery.
Who wouldn't want to become more Indestructible and Increase their playing time? No hands, well then why focus on running around cones for an hour a day?
If you are in the Southern California area, and you are VERY SERIOUS about getting your Son or Daughter the best Coaching around...call us @ 951 346-6900.
P.S. No half-ass, un-committed Athletes allowed...only the dedicated will be accepted.
