Speed is king.
Every contest is a race so you need to get there and without adequate speed, you'll never win.
Over 80% of all sprint efforts in a game of footy are acceleration based but the absolute game changer is max velocity, or top end, speed.
We're talking taking your opponent up the ground then turning them inside out on the way back.
We're talking running the opposition down from behind.
We're talking X-Factor!
You can expect a drop of .2-.4secs off your 20m sprint time and .3 - .6secs off your 40m sprint time after following all 3 acceleration and max velocity programs.
It might not seem like much but that equates to being 1 - 1.5m faster over those distances then your opposition which is more then enough time to gather the ball be on your way!
