Transitional Speed Training

Regardless of what sport you’re involved in (track being the exception), it’s unlikely that you sprint in a straight line for more than 10-15 yards very frequently.

Athletic speed really depends heavily on three things:

1) Rate of acceleration

2) Rate of deceleration

3) Ability to change directions rapidly

Of these, rate of acceleration is the only one that really receives any attention from most athletes.  Not surprisingly, all three are HIGHLY dependent on the strength and power of your leg and hip musculature.  In addition to improving lower body strength and power, you can drastically improve your athletic speed by focusing on correct movement patterns, and by practicing transitional speed drills.

In my next newsletter, I’m going to show several transitional speed drills that I’ve developed over the last few months to help athletes of all sports perfect transitional movement patterns and improve athletic speed.
