Increase your acceleration, maximum speed, and endurance! Speed for Sports Performance provides the tools to build a program for your specific needs, sports, and goals.
Through a series of self-assessments, you will identify areas of improvement and establish a baseline for training regimens. Then, improve such key areas as reaction time, technique, stride, mobility, and first-step explosiveness with variable, resisted, and assisted speed training exercises. And if recovering from injury, alternative training methods are included to aid in rehabilitation and help prevent future injuries.
Sample training programs may also be customized to a sport’s seasonal workout schedule and position demands. Best of all, these four-season programs and workouts may also be printed from the DVD, so you can take instruction directly to the field, court, or gym. Developed by speed training expert John Cissik, the Speed for Sports Performance DVD will help improve your performance like no other resource available.
Human Kinetics DVDs are coded for universal playback and can be played in all regions of the world.
