Training for Speed, Agility, and Quickness Video on Demand: Acceleration
For many sports the ability to start explosively from multiple positions is critical. Training for Speed, Agility, and Quickness Video on Demand: Acceleration provides a special drill progression that develops those acceleration skills.
The 12-drill progression, featured in the best-selling Training for Speed, Agility, and Quickness, Third Edition,* by Lee Brown and Vance Ferrigno, will increase hip extension and flexion strength, hip power, leg power, and stride length. Beginning with wall drills, you will learn proper body position and alignment and move on to skipping drills that increase leg power, hip power, and stride length. Shuffles and bounds increase ankle strength while quick-feet drills develop high-acceleration runs. Learning how to start and accelerate in the most effective manner can mean the difference between victory and defeat—so be victorious!
