"Speed of Sport is a term used to explain the importance of training athletes at a speed practical for the athletes sport. Science has proven that excessive lifting of heavy loads in a slow manner (absolute strength training) trains the muscle to adapt to the heavy load and slower contraction, eventually making the athlete become slower after repeated bouts. (Kotz, Filinov, Verkhoshansky, Deniskin)
Over the past several years I have incorporated what I believe to be the best training modalities from various sources, including mentors and science databases. These methods have led me to produce multiple World Champions, National Champions, NCAA Champions, High School Champions, as well as multiple High School " Player of the year " and "Athlete of the Year" award recipients. I have trained and still train many of the best players in multiple professional sports. I have helped many Professional and amateur athletes as well as people with active lifestyles become stronger, more athletic, and less prone to injury. This training delivers on its promise."
