Straight Line Speed Program for Field and Court Athletes – $24.95
Complete 10 week Program including Warmup and Cooldown. This is one of ASSA’s most popular training programs that is now available for you to partake of within your own training schedule anywhere in the world.
The importance of explosive straight line speed in sport cannot be understated. Speed sets you apart from the rest and allows you to be a game changer. “Speed is king” is an often used phrase and it really is one the very first things a coach will look for when selecting their representative players.
When we consider that change of direction is depicted as a unique transitional step between one straight line sprint to another, then including straight line speed into your programming becomes paramount to success.
This program is all about QUALITY SPEED TRAINING. This is very different to fitness conditioning where athletes are made to run endlessly with little if any rest or recovery.
This program is designed to allow your athletes to sprint at 100% effort in every rep. By following the carefully constructed rest periods, your athletes will develop the nervous system to elicit fast contractions which, when combined with their game based conditioning, will give you that competitive edge.
Q:So what is the difference between this program and the RSA program below?
A:The linear speed program develops all out explosive acceleration in players. This is unique in that extended rests allow specific training of the nervous system to generate speed quickly.
The RSA program (below) is designed to develop the capacity to sustain short duration high intensity sprints with INCOMPLETE recoveries with as little drop off speed as possible. They are both unique components that need to be trained within their specific context.
