"Failure to prepare, is preparing to fail"
We stay ready for the opportunity when it comes, because you only get one shot.
Improving athletes speed is done through multiple ways but a huge priority is getting their technique locked down and we do that by addressing their posture, arm action and leg action.
Speed training is often done incorrectly, they confuse speed training with 'conditioning'. The difference is that speed training sessions should take place with MAXIMAL intensity and COMPLETE recovery in order to maintain high power outputs.
Athletes need an intelligently designed speed, strength and power program to maximize results. It's not just about doing work, but it's about doing the right work at the right time so they can "peak" at for maximal performance when the season comes.
