MOST ATHLETES NEVER GET CLOSE TO THEIR SPEED POTENTIAL.

Most Speed Gurus Train Team-Sport Athletes Like Track and Field Sprinters. It's No Surprise It Rarely Works Out...

There is a huge difference between the training of elite sprinters and team sport athletes.

But most ‘speed’ coaches train you more like an elite specialist sprinter, forgetting that team sport athletes are generalists — they have to be good at everything, not just running in a straight line out of the blocks.

That’s why most speed training doesn’t work for team sport athletes — it simply doesn’t account for all the different physical attributes you need to develop at the same time to become an elite athlete. In fact, the training loads are often poorly managed and speed is trained in a vacuum; so when it gets to the pitch or court, it doesn’t transfer to the chaotic world of team sports.

Because of this gap in knowledge, the most ‘glamorous’ speed training is often what gets the attention. Fancy cone drills, quick-feet through agility ladders and technical drills that look good on YouTube are what most athletes spend time doing… even though they won’t turn your average acceleration into blistering top end speed.

To develop the gift of speed, you need to understand the proven 3-step formula for speed development that most speed coaches don’t tell you.

THE 3 PILLARS OF SPEED PRODUCTION FOR THE TEAM SPORT ATHLETE

1. Relative Force Production
in the gym

The first pillar of speed is the development of relative force. Athletes can’t be fast until they’re powerful. When an athlete can produce more force per kg of bodyweight, this directly translates to more speed — it’s simple physics. This isn’t developed on the field; it’s developed in the gym. Powerful athletes are athletes who have the potential to be fast. Weak athletes can never be fast.

2. Acceleration & Top-End Speed technique

There is no denying improving running mechanics can help the team-sport athlete; it’s usually the lowest hanging fruit and will reap the biggest reward. The athlete that can optimise their quickness in the first couple of steps will always have the advantage in team sports; the same goes for the athletes that can harness their top end potential with great speed mechanics. 

3. Speed Simulation
on the pitch

The third pillar is so obvious that you’d be surprised it’s often overlooked when training for speed. If you want to be fast, you have to run, fast. At the end of the day, no drills that improve mechanics or strength training can be optimised unless an athlete actually sprints. It stands to reason that the third pillar is actual speed simulation.

How it works

Unlike most speed solutions that train speed in a vacuum, our speed & agility program is seamlessly integrated into our Athlete Development Program (ADP).

The ADP program improves strength and power (pillar one), teaches great running mechanics (pillar two), and provides a great training dosage of real speed training (pillar three). We do this with a combination of in-gym training and training on the pitch where all the hard work comes together while reducing injury risk for the team-sport athlete.

We help athletes of all levels bulletproof their weaknesses, decrease injury risk, and develop the gift of speed. Unlike other programs that start and end on the pitch, we combine everything that an athlete needs to maximise their speed potential. Here is how it works:

Re: Can speed really be trained?

You may have heard the idea that speed is born, not built.

The problem with statements like this is that they’re true… kind of.

While there is no doubt a huge genetic contribution to speed, I’ve also seen athletes who were never known for their speed develop a punch and power in their sprint that makes them a dominant force on the pitch where it counts.

And that’s the point — if you’re already a speed demon, you’re probably not looking at this page. This isn’t for the speed demon; it’s for the guys and girls who want to be more like one. Our program helps you get the most out of your genetic potential by giving you the best preparation possible.

With our 3-pillars system, we take the genetics you can’t change and find a way to harness all of your potential with great training because we’ve proven time and time again that the gift of speed doesn’t only come down to the genetic lottery. Speed can be built; it isn’t just born.

What's the investment?

Our Speed & Agility Program is a key feature found within our Athlete Development Program (ADP).

When you join our ADP, you’ll have everything you need to feel fully prepared including the speed and agility training discussed here.
