2,097 rushing yards on the season with 12 TDs. 3.30 batting average with 118 runs. 262 three point field goals with 746 free throws completed. (Adrian Peterson 2012, Bryce Harper 2015, James Harden 2016).
Being afforded the opportunity to put all of these athletes through their pre-combine warm-ups has inspired me to write today’s blog in hopes to continue to educate our youth and our coaches on the impact various warm-up styles have on an athlete’s performance.
In honor of the NFL Combine on February 28, and in conjuction with BodyBuilder.com and MuscleTech, we will be releasing two videos each week on how to improve your time and technique in the 40 yard dash, 3 cone drill, vertical jump, 225 bench press, shuttle run, and broad jump. Many athletes think they are fast, but are they NFL fast?
What's your 40? This is a wildly popular question among young athletes. Speed is made up of two components: stride frequency and stride length. To run faster and shave time off your 40-Yard Dash, you must improve your stride length, or the amount of ground you cover with each stride.
