Include speed training in your strength program
How to Include Speed and Strength Training In Your Workouts

“How do I include the AthleticQuickness.com  Speed Training Program into my existing strength training routine?”   This is the question I hear more than any other.  Because strength training can interfere with results of pure speed training, many athletes are asking how they should structure their workouts to take advantage of both strength training and speed training. 8 Tips for Including a Speed Training Program into Your Strength Training Routine Remember, muscles have two distinct fiber types – fast twitch for muscle speed and slow twitch for muscle strength. These different fiber types cannot be separated apart from each other… read more

What is muscle confusion
What is Muscle Confusion?

What really is Muscle Confusion? The complete answer may just surpise you! Most people would define the term Muscle Confusion as changes in one’s workout routine every couple of weeks to prevent plateaus from occurring and to keep your muscles continually growing and responding. Changes in your workout may be something as simple as this: You may be working your chest with the straight bar for incline presses, decline presses and flat bench presses for about 4 weeks.  You stop with those, and not only introduce 3 new chest exercises with dumbbells such as incline flies, decline flies and flat… read more

Strong leg for kicking
How to Get a Strong Kicking Leg

“WOW! THAT GUY HAS A STRONG LEG!” Why is the smallest guy on the team getting credit for having the strongest leg on the team? We’ve all seen and heard of it before. You are there watching a good football game, and a punter, backed-up into his own end zone, drills a 70 yarder dashing any hope of the opposing team working with a short field. Or, just before halftime or the end of a game, a place kicker nails a 55+ yarder. And what is it that we hear from the announcers? “Wow, that guy has a strong leg!”… read more

Isometrics and speed training
3 Reasons Isometrics is Ideal for Sports Speed

3 Reasons Why Isometrics, The Way We Teach It, Is Ideal For Speed Training! The training does not mix endurance or strength training with speed training, so it can focus soley on the factors that make it a pure speed training program.    First, what is meant by muscle contraction speed? Use the biceps muscle in your arm for an example.  When your arm is stretched out straight, your biceps muscle is stretched.  Now move your fist towards your shoulder.  What has happened?  Your biceps muscle contracts thus moving your fist toward your shoulder.   Obviously, the faster your muscle contracts, the… read more

Isometric training and fast twitch muscle fibers
How to Train Fast Twitch Muscle Fibers

Use Isometric Training for Fast Twitch Muscle Fibers Isometric Exercises Using the Resistance BandThe Little Known SECRET for Speeding Past Your Competition The word ISOMETRIC is defined as follows: “Iso” means equal or the same, and “metric” means length.  Combining these two definitions we get “equal or the same length.” Isometrics, as it pertains to muscle training, involves tensing muscles against other muscles or against an immovable object while the length of the muscle remains unchanged.   For isometric training to be effective, this muscular tension must be maintained over a certain period of time. Therefore, isometric training is best defined… read more

what are isometrics good for
Isometric Training Re-Invented For Speed Training

This is not the isometric training program your parents were taught Today’s isometric training is much more than just helping you get past a sticking point with your bench press. Whenever you ask someone if they include a form of isometric training in their workout, you rarely find anyone who makes time for it. And, if you are lucky enough to find someone who does apply this strategy, you usually will hear them say that they only use it to help them get past a sticking point in their bench press but not much else. The Bench Press Sticking Point… read more

Muscle Types

Types Of Muscles   Part 1: Muscle Tissue and Contractions Part 2: Types of Muscles Part 3: Fast Twitch and Slow Twitch Muscles Part 4: Physiological Effects of Strenuous Exercise   There are three different types of muscles: 1) cardiac muscle, 2) smooth muscle and 3) skeletal muscle.

Muscle Tissues and Contractions   Part 1: Muscle Tissue and Contractions Part 2: Types of Muscles Part 3: Fast Twitch and Slow Twitch Muscles Part 4: Physiological Effects of Strenuous Exercise   Muscle tissue is a contractive type of tissue that can undergo tension by shortening (concentric contractions), lengthening (eccentric contractions) or remaining the same length (isometric contractions).

glute muscles used in sports
Condition Glutes for all Sports Activities

The Glutes – How to get the advantage in a game situation!   The Glutes are often conditioned for pushing and jumping, yet they are mostly under-developed for pulling. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m a huge fan of what the hip flexor muscles can do for any athlete desiring speed, power and instant playmaking ability. I am also convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that many athletes unwittingly ignore the power stored up in this muscle group and can go through their entire playing careers never reaching their absolute best. All you need to do… read more

Running Steps – A Good Workout or Not?

Is Running Steps a Good Idea, or a Bad Idea? An interesting question ….. I love to run steps whenever I get the opportunity.  Years ago when I was in my early 20’s, I was living with my sister and brother-in-law in their condominium in Pompano Beach, Florida. The building we were living in at the time had upwards of 20 floors. This meant the fire escape stairwell had 40 flights of zig-zagged steps, with each flight containing about 10 steps. In Florida, this meant that the non air-conditioned fire escape was extremely warm and got hotter the higher you… read more
