What makes the RUN FASTER training program different from others?


There are several ways the Run Faster training program differs from others. Here are perhaps the biggest reasons:

There are three basic phases to the running motion: 1) the push phase, 2) the swing phase and 3) the return or pull phase. You can read about them in more detail here along with the muscles involved in each. http://www.athleticquickness.com/speedtraininglessons.asp

Most of the current training routines today really focus on trying to improve the start of a race where the push phase is most dominant. The better start or push an athlete gets in the beginning, the better advantage they hope to gain.

The start is where sprinters begin in a crouched position with their knees and hips near complete flexion. Since the knees and hips are near complete flexion, the first phase or action the sprinter has to go through is to extend the knee and hip and plantarflex the same ankle. By doing this, the sprinting process is set into motion. The actions of these muscles are what make up the push phase.

This is an extremely important part of the race and certainly requires the proper amount of training however it is important to remind you that the push phase accounts for only 1/3 of the total running motion.

Equally important to note is that while getting a good start in a race is critical for success, the start makes up just a small percentage of the length in an entire race, such as 100m, yet, most of one’s training may focus only on improving this part of the race.

If you look at the amount of distance an athlete remains in a lower or crouched position at the start (where the push phase dominant) and compare that to the amount of distance an athlete is running upright where all three phases play an equal role, you will see that a ratio between running low at the beginning versus running high through the remainder of the race is somewhere near 1:10. This means that only about 10% of the race being run is in a crouched position and 90%, or the majority, of the race is being run in the upright position.

So, if you want to really get a jump or leg up on your sprinting speed, you will need to focus your training equally on all three phases, and not just push phase.

Here’s where this gets interesting. Most exercise equipment in the gym is designed to train muscles that are involved primarily with the push phase of running only. Leg extension machines help with knee extension; calf raise machines help with ankle plantar-flexion; leg press machines help with both hip and knee extension; and squatting also helps with both hip and knee extension. (Leave aside upper body exercises for now)

It’s quite possible then that when athletes leave a gym believing they have done everything imaginable to help improve their running speed, they are leaving behind at least half of the necessary training required to run faster.

Now, all of the gym exercises we talked about here so far are beneficial to an athlete and should be done whenever possible. The challenge most athletes will face is finding an exercise program aimed at improving all three phases of running. This is where the success of the Run Faster program has really gotten a lot of attention and it is also the reason why you really need to know which muscles are involved in each of the three phases of running.

So, in addition to the exercises needed to improve the push phase of running, The Run Faster program has several unique exercises to really improve the swing phase and return phase as well.

The swing phase is where the trailing airborne leg needs to be pulled from behind you and quickly extended out in front of you. Some people call this your stride. Chances are, you have never even bothered to train for this motion in part because there is no real good equipment in the gym to do so as well as there was probably never any importance placed on it.

Some people have even gone so far as to dismiss this critical phase of running as being important because they say, “there is no weight placed on the leg during this motion, so why train for it?” Let us assure you that when you use our program to improve even this one phase, you will be amazed at how quickly and easily your muscles respond and how much faster you will get in just days. This is also why we show an exercise on how to improve it in our speed training challenge, because it works that well.

Equally important is training to improve the return or pull phase. This is the shortest of all the phases of running, but certainly commands its fair share of training if you expect to be as fast as possible. This phase essentially pulls your body forward and readies your leg to repeat the running motion cycle. Like the swing phase, there is no real good equipment in the gym to use that will help simulate and train the muscles in their proper planes of motion for the return phase.

Improving your swing phase and return phase will give an athlete a much more dynamic and faster turnover rate with their legs. It will also give you an immediate advantage the next time you play sports. You should expect to notice and see the difference within the first two weeks of using the Run Faster program.

Another difference in the RUN FASTER program has to do with the training strategy:

It is perhaps safe to say that most athletes perform exercises involving concentric and eccentric contractions only, and completely ignore the third contraction type, isometric contractions.

To be a complete athlete, you will also need to dedicate a reasonable amount of your training time to isometrics with the resistance band. If you do, then you will have created a very good and necessary balance in the training of muscles.

This are perhaps the two biggest differences between our program and others you may have been using.

Does the RUN FASTER speed training program require any special equipment?


No. We provide the training manual and the special resistance bands required to do the training exercises. There’s no equipment to set-up, and the training exercises can be done practically anywhere

How much faster will I be after doing the RUN FASTER speed training program exercises?


There are far too many variables (condition, age, weight, determination, etc.) involved to predict how much faster any one individual will be.

We have received hundreds of reports from people using the RUN FASTER speed training program telling us they have improved their 40 yard sprint times by as much as .5 to .6 sec. or their 100 meter times by more than 1 sec. We’ve had 400 meter runners report correspondingly and proportionally similar results.

Your condition when you begin doing the RUN FASTER training will, of course, affect the results. If you aren’t in peak condition and haven’t done training like this before, then there is a huge upside for improvement!

Is this program beneficial for longer distance running?


The RUN FASTER training program will help you run any distance, long or shorter, providing you’ve never done any isometric resistance training. If you haven’t, then you have a huge reservoir of untapped muscular energy, that the RUN FASTER training exercises helps to release.

Will the RUN FASTER speed training program improve my lateral quickness?


Yes, absolutely! Lateral mobility is primarily a function of two main muscle groups: the aDductors and the aBductors. The adductors function to move your legs and thighs inward toward the midline of your body. The abductors function to separate your legs and thighs away from the midline of your body.

You cannot increase the contraction rate of these muscles by using the adductor and abductor machines, weight training machines, found in a typical gym. These typical machines will only make these muscles stronger, and they won’t make them contract faster. In fact, our trials and experience has demonstrated that weight training will actually decrease the contraction rate considerably.

Only by using isometric training using resistance bands as prescribed by the RUN FASTER training program can you expect to increase the rate of muscular contraction of your skeletal muscles and, therefore, make you faster.

Athletes become like that which they train. In other words, if you train with dead weight (weights, sleds, etc.), you become dead weight. If you train with dynamic elastic bands, then your body will become more dynamic and elastic … FAST!
