    Increase your acceleration, maximum speed, and endurance! Speed for Sports Performance provides the tools for building a program for your specific needs, sports, and goals.

    Through a series of self-assessments, you will identify areas of improvement and establish a baseline for training regimens. Then, improve key areas such as reaction time, technique, stride, mobility, and first-step explosiveness with variable, resisted, and assisted speed training exercises. And if you’re recovering from injury, alternative training methods are included to aid in rehabilitation and help prevent future injuries.

    Developed by speed training expert John Cissik, Speed for Sports Performance will help improve your performance like no other resource available.
