A Great Speed Training Resource

I was sent the new Complete Speed Training program last week and I got a chance to go through it this weekend.

I respect what Lee Taft does in this program (and also recommend you go see him present at the PerformBetter events).

If you work with speed & power athletes, you should check out this program.

-> Complete Speed Training

Complete Speed Training is geared towards coaches and focuses on teaching (the why’s and how’s), instead of just throwing hundreds of drills at you.

Lee presents his latest speed & agility training methods in this new course. I don’t directly promote a lot of programs, so when I do, I make sure it isn’t a waste of your time.

Since you’re a learner like me, you will want to see what other top coaches are doing. If you want to get your clients or athletes quicker and faster, I suggest you give this program a look – Complete Speed Training

Another Vote Against Specializing- This Time From the NFL

There is so much evidence against specialization that I can’t figure out why anyone specializes. This quote from ESPN.com article might be the best quote ever:

“If these kids are hearing they need to specialize in one sport, it’s mostly because of business and the ego around these coaches,” said Andrew Bark, founder of Student Sports, which runs the annual Elite 11 Quarterback Competition. “You have a lot of untrained or minimally trained adults basically either building their business of club sports, or you have leagues and teams and coaches who only care about their own wins and losses. But the truth is exactly what your [ESPN] numbers say. Playing other sports makes a lot of sense.”
