A message to all football players about your football speed training exercises and 40 yard dash time…
“Are You Missing Game Breaking Opportunities Because You Were Not Fast Enough?”
If you are… then no amount of heavy duty squats, leg curls, practice drills or 40 yard sprints (even with a parachute tied to your waist) will get you to run faster the way you need to.
Here is what you need to do right now to dominate the football field.
The single most common training mistake made by football coaches, trainers and players today… is thinking you can get faster by using excessive strength training, plyometrics, or endurance training workouts.
Now first of all, one thing needs to be made clear, strength conditioning and endurance training are crucial for football players and is therefore an important part of their training routine.
But the problem is that speed is also crucial to winning football. And football players are almost always disappointed in their speed gains.
“We do every workout the coach tells us to do – even jumping up and down off boxes, but we just can’t seem to get much faster… and sometimes I feel slower”. Have you heard that before? Here is what an Ohio State football player who played in two Rose Bowl games said about their speed training programs:
“Those things really didn’t help at all”. All of his teammates were always looking for something to make them faster, nothing helped. He said this with great disappointment, shaking his head.
For years, athletes have been taught that more is better, and “no pain no gain.” That’s a great saying for a football player desiring to get bigger and stronger. But for those trying to get faster, well, let’s just say, “it ain’t going to happen.”
The bottom line is this: Training for blazing speed cannot be accomplished in the same way as training for strength and endurance – no matter how hard you try.
This same logic applies to weight training and plyometric training, along with running down a field with a parachute or weight sled strapped around your waistline. These types of routines may build strength or endurance but they will not generate the lightning quick muscular responses needed for blazing speed and quickness.
The more heavy strength training you do with the hopes of getting faster, the farther away you are likely to be from your goal.
This is why most athletes do not run a faster 40 and often get slower in their 40 yard times. When you talk with them, they are dumbfounded, surprised and perhaps more than a little embarrassed.
The reason muscles cannot be trained for speed the same way they are trained for strength is because your muscles are made of different fiber types. One fiber type (called slow twitch fibers) gives your muscles strength to move against heavy resistance. Another fiber type (called fast twitch fibers) gives your muscles speed, that is, the ability to contract very quickly.
Different fiber types require different types of training. You cannot train for speed the same way you train for strength and endurance. Each fiber type needs to be conditioned so that it accomplishes its specific purpose. If you train only for strength and endurance (a slow twitch training program) then your fast twitch muscle fibers will literally start behaving more like slow twitch fibers and will be ignored in their natural ability to generate speed and quickness.
Fast Twitch muscle fibers are often ignored
You see, most training programs are not designed to or capable of conditioning your fast twitch muscles fibers for explosive speed and quickness. That’s because strength and endurance training will cause these fibers to ignore their natural ability to contract instantly and cause them to behave more like slow twitch fibers – even if they call it “speed training”.
In fact, once you start to exercise these specific muscle fibers, the way we teach it, you will likely discover that up until now they have been totally underdeveloped.
If you think you are fast now, just wait until you unlock the speed that fast twitch muscle fibers are capable of!
This remarkable exercise program which I am about to tell you about is designed to do just one thing and one thing only, and it does it very well – target and condition your entire muscle to unlock and develop the speed and quickness of fast twitch muscle fibers.
Even if you are already the fastest player on the team you are still leaving plenty of speed ‘on the table’ (that means there is still plenty of room for improvement in your running speed).
In football speed counts on nearly every play. On defense as well as offense.
Without speed and quickness you may be moving around a lot on the field but you’re not going to be part of the play (unless you’re the guy with ball and getting crushed every time you carry it.)
Personally, I don’t care how you try to take care of this speed problem. There are mobs of football coaches and trainers out there who will give you all of the advice you can handle – and more – about how to sprint faster.
Hey — if you want to keep trying the same old conditioning routines everyone else is using and without being satisfied with the results, then I suggest doing so.
But, I am now going to introduce you to new revolutionary exercises that will condition the specific fibers in your muscles that generate speed and quickness so you will be sprinting and moving like never before.
Others will be chasing you instead of you chasing them, and the other team will be saying “who is that guy”?- even the referees will be astonished.
These exercises have given new levels of speed and quickness for thousands of athletes and will absolutely improve your game – even help you dominate the football field if that is your goal.
You will have the ‘unfair and immediate advantage’ that very few others even know about; That is…
How to Make Your Muscles Faster.
Sprinting speed is mostly determined by how fast your muscles contract, not by how strong they are. The honor of being the fastest sprinter goes to those with the fastest muscles. The faster your muscles move your leg the quicker you will run.
Like in any sport, proper football conditioning makes all the difference. What most people don’t realize is that there are three aspects to well rounded conditioning: endurance, strength and speed.
Athletes train for endurance by running long distances or training for long periods of time. Strength is usually increased by lifting heavy weights.
Proper training for pure muscle speed is often ignored
But, what about making your muscles faster? It’s not happening because athletes are ignoring proper training for muscle speed.
Why? Because they have not been taught speed training exercises that train muscles to react faster and quicker – only how to make them stronger. As a result many have been disappointed in their attempts to get faster. We even make the excuse that speed is something you are born with and can’t be developed. But the fact is muscles can be conditioned for blazing speed and quickness if you do it properly.
Your running speed will be determined by how fast your muscles contract, it’s as simple as that.
The simple speed training exercise program I am about to show you will develop the kind of speed and quickness that most football players only dream of.
And, unlike other types of conditioning, these exercises will be quick and easy to do and take just a few minutes a day.
Condition Your Running Muscles For Contraction Speed
We have been researching and practicing what makes muscles fast for years. Scientific research and athletic experience has uncovered the little known secrets of what it takes to condition your muscles specifically for speed.
Using this knowledge, we have developed a unique running speed exercise training program that is designed to do one thing and one thing only, make your running muscles quicker and faster.
Even if you have been playing for years and work out regularly, you will probably realize that though you may feel stronger and have more endurance, you are still not much faster now than you were previously.
That is because you have been ignoring for speed the specific fibers in your muscles that can generate explosive speed and quickness. These fibers cannot be conditioned for their natural ability to contract instantly using the traditional methods of strength training or plyometrics. In fact, those methods could actually make you slower.
The best strategy for getting faster muscle speed
What we have found is that muscle speed is best developed using a program of isometric exercises with resistance bands.
Now we know that isometrics has been around for many years, and dramatic results have been achieved using this technique, but because of the many new training methods that have been introduced over the past several years, isometrics has been mostly ignored.
Resistance bands have become more popular recently; however they are typically used as a replacement for weights and cables – but resistance bands as a replacement for weights – using repetitions – doesn’t work for speed.
Resistance bands used properly with an isometric training strategy far out performs weights when it comes to developing speed.
Isometrics, the way we teach it using the resistance band, is the ideal method to develop blazing speed and quickness in football and in any other sport.
Incredible results in athletic performance have been realized when muscles are properly conditioned for speed.
The many stories of dramatic increases in speed we receive from athletes and recreational players alike supports our understanding about how muscles work and how they are designed to produce both speed and strength and why muscles can not be trained for speed the same way they are trained for strength.
As a result of using these speed training exercises, you will:
- Make dramatic increases in your 40 yard sprints – even if you are already fast.
- Get open more often.
- Increase your lateral mobility.
- Get downfield faster.
- Out run your opponent to stop their scoring drive.
- Get past blockers.
- Make more tackles.
- Improve on your closing speed.
- Score more touchdowns.
- Have more confidence on the field.
- Feel stronger and not tire as quickly.
- Astonish your friends and other players.
- Make your opponent look bad.
- Play with greater enjoyment.
It’s time to get serious about your football speed and you will not find a quicker, simpler and more effective way to maximize your speed and improve your game – no matter what position you play
Speed is not determined by how strong your muscles are, that is by how much weight they can lift, but by how quickly they react and contract. And speed and quickness of your muscles is accomplished by properly conditioning what are called your fast twitch muscle fibers. These are the specific fibers in your muscles that are responsible for speed and quickness.
The secret to more explosive power found in this remarkable speed training program is that it specifically targets the fast twitch muscle fibers to do 2 things.
- Condition your muscles to contract with amazing speed and quickness, and
- Develop ‘muscle memory’ in your neuro pathways so your reactions are automatic and instinctive.
And, it does all this in a safe, simple and easy to follow routine that anyone can do, practically anywhere and anytime in just a few minutes a day, without any special equipment.
It is now possible for you and anyone else to breakthrough your speed barriers like never before, explode past your competition, and ignite your whole team.
And because fast twitch muscle fibers respond to conditioning much faster and easier than strength – or slow twitch – fibers, you will feel quicker and faster and sprint with astonishing speed in just a few days.
Works for all age groups & fitness levels
This isometric exercise program uses the dynamic elastic properties of resistance bands – as the band stretches and contracts the resistance that is applied instantly changes. The bands are included with the exercise manual, and they will train your muscles for speed and quickness like never before.
You will see results in just 14 days or less, just by following the included exercise instructions for a just few minutes each day.
And because the resistance level applied by the bands is determined by the strength of the individual, these exercises can be successfully used by practically anyone, of any age, and any fitness level.
Can Football Players Handle This Kind of Training?
Now, we know that football players are not used to this type of training – and they usually cannot imagine themselves working out with anything that is not heavy, big or expensive – but that is their problem, we can’t help it if they don’t get faster.
If you want to be as fast as the guys in track, then you need to start thinking a little different from the rest of the crowd.
Isometrics with resistance bands is not heavy, big or expensive. But it will make your muscles fast… very fast.
Isometrics with the resistance band far outperforms any other training method when it comes to developing muscle speed.
Not only will this program target your specific muscle fibers that generate speed, they will also isolate the exact muscles that are crucial for sprinting speed.
For example, The thigh flexor muscles are considered to be the primary muscle group involved in running. The faster you can accelerate your thighs upwards and forward, the faster you will be able to run – it’s as simple as that!
And believe it or not, the thigh flexor muscles are the most overlooked muscle in almost all “so-called” speed training programs out there. In fact, you probably won’t find a single weight machine in your gym that targets these muscles.
Which means you have plenty of untapped speed in your thigh flexor muscles alone. And if you condition them purely for speed, the way we teach it, you will leave your competition in the dust with their jaws dropped.
In addition you will condition for speed, perhaps for the first time, the fast twitch muscle fibers in all of the other major muscle groups involved in sprinting.
In football you will need to be able to move quickly from side to side. You will also learn to properly exercise for speed the muscles involved in lateral movements.
The package is complete and the results come quickly.
Training for pure speed is not strenuous, time consuming or intensive like strength or endurance training.
Proper speed training, the way we teach it, takes only a few minutes a day and should leave you feeling stronger, yet light and responsive… not tired, slow or sluggish as in strength or plyometrics training.
Even if you are currently in mid-football season, you will start seeing results in your game within days. You could be the one who makes the big difference in your next game!
The sooner you get started, the sooner you will be out sprinting your opponents on the football field.
What will happen if you decide to do nothing? That’s right, nothing will change and your running speed will not be improved.
Order these football speed training exercises now to absolutely get more out of your game by developing a fast twitch muscle response, and conditioning muscles that have been largely ignored, perhaps for the first time, so you will:
- Score more touchdowns
- Race past your opponent
- Get open more often
- Gain more yards
- Make more tackles
- Shut down the opposing offense
- Astonish your teammates and opponents
- Ignite your team
- Get the attention of coaches and scouts
- Have more fun
