Speed is not only the ability to physically move fast, but also the ability to recognize the need to begin moving. The visual ignition program enhances an athlete’s speed by teaching the athlete to quickly recognize and react to visual triggers such as flashes of color. By learning to recognize a color, decode what that color means, and then to quickly execute a physical response in reaction to that color, an athlete will perform more smoothly and confidently in the course of athletic competition.
Possessing a strong core (stomach and lower back) is important because it ties together the upper and lower body during intense athletic movements like sprinting and jumping. The stronger an athlete is from the middle out, the more effective that athlete will be in any athletic competition.
Training with a Jelly Ball is one of the most fun and effective ways to quickly impact core strength. This video illustrates 40 of the most popular Jelly Ball drills used by our staff.

If you were told to form a picture in your mind of what the world’s fastest human being looks like. chances are your mind would create the picture of someone with muscular thighs and hamstrings, rock-hard calves, and lightning quick feet. But what about that athlete’s elbows? If you’re like most people, it probably didn’t even cross your mind that the elbows would play in to this equation at all. But the fact is, a large part of an athlete’s sprint speed is rooted in the ability to quickly fire the elbows backwards during a sprint. And Hand Weights are the perfect item for developing this skill.

This product is designed to strengthen the muscles responsible for lateral movement, and designed to teach athletes proper technique for defensive positioning. By mixing the Sidewinder into your training, you will develop smothering defensive skills, and make it extremely difficult for your opponent to put points on the scoreboard.
A dynamic warm up routine is preferred over the traditional method of sitting on the ground and stretching. A dynamic warm up requires the athlete to bounce around, creatively stretch their muscles, exercise balance and body control, and reinforce specific forms of proper movement technique. This type of warm up routine also awakens an athlete’s mind for the upcoming workout. By conducting a better warm up routine, you will accomplish more in your practices and be better prepared for your games. So don’t begin your next practice by sitting your athlete on the ground. Instead, kick it off by implementing a handful of the following drills on this video.
An athlete who can produce a rapid succession of foot contacts, while retaining body positioning and control, has a great advantage over an athlete whose feet are “stuck in the mud”. The quickfoot Ladder may be the best training tool in existence for teaching young athletes rhythm and control and for helping elite athletes develop feet that move at the speed of light. This video illustrates 70 of the most popular Quickfoot Ladder drills used by our staff.
