    All-Pro Performance Training With CE Exam takes combine training to a whole new level by featuring a groundbreaking approach to movement training by one of the most sought after performance coaches in the country. As strength and conditioning coach of the NFL’s Denver Broncos, Loren Landow trains some of the most finely tuned athletes in the world. Prior to joining the Broncos, he founded Landow Performance, a sport performance training facility based in Denver, whose staff of strength and conditioning coaches has worked with hundreds of well-known athletes from the highest levels of sport (NFL, NCAA Division I, WNBA, MLB, NHL, UFC, Olympic Games). Landow knows what it takes to shine at a combine, and he shares his specialized knowledge here.

    With a foreword by Christian McCaffrey, Carolina Panthers running back and Landow Performance client, the text breaks down the proper execution of combine staples such as the 40-yard dash and pro-agility shuttle. It offers tips for mastering position-specific agility drills, and it provides an inside look into how athletes at the highest level of the sport both train and recover.

    Proven techniques for mastering position-specific agility drills will help players hone their biomechanical movement efficiency, reduce the risk of injury, and open scouts’ eyes. And Prep Like a Pro sidebars put you right on the field with the author, revealing the most advanced training regimens and technological tools used by elite coaches and athletes.

    Equip your athletes to reach their full potential. With All-Pro Performance Training, strength and conditioning coaches and personal trainers have the definitive playbook for training their athletes with purpose to perform at their peak at combine time. Upon completing the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.

    • Implement an active dynamic warm-up and use the warm-up as an athlete movement screening tool.
