Speed and Agility Program

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Speed and Agility Program is based on resistance training methods used to push the athlete to increase their explosiveness, quickness and overall speed. Exercises will be done with the use of resistance bands to increase the intensity of each exercise to attain optimum results. The program targets the leg muscles such as Quadriceps, Hamstrings, Calf Muscles, Hip Flexors, and Glutes. The program also includes core strengthening exercises. The program includes 10 sessions and is designed to be done twice a week. This program is beneficial to multiple different sports and can be a great asset to the local teams and organizations.

RESULTS/TESTIMONIALS:  Results that have been earned include a 2 tenth decrease in an athlete’s 60 yard time (Baseball timing Method), increased vertical leap, increased lateral quickness and increased explosiveness.
