“How To Improve Your Athletic Performance and Become a Better Player in Days; Not Weeks or Months - by Making Your Muscles Faster!”
Having fast muscles is not the same as having strong muscles and you can not get faster contracting muscles by training for strength using traditional weight training routines - in fact that could actually make you slower.
For speed, fast muscles will nearly always be more important than strong muscles - yet making your muscles faster is almost always misunderstood.
The reason muscles can be both strong and fast is because they are composed of basically two fiber types. One type (slow twitch fibers) for strength and endurance, the ability to move against heavy resistance and to perform repetitions without tiring. And another type of fiber (fast twitch fibers) for speed, quickness, and acceleration.
Muscle speed is accomplished by conditioning your muscles to perform what is called a 'fast twitch response' – which basically means to condition your fast twitch muscle fibers for their natural ability to contract with amazing speed and acceleration.
The bottom line is you cannot condition your muscles for speed using the same techniques you use to train for strength. You may think you are making your muscles faster with strength and endurance training routines but your muscles will always know the difference.
This is what most coaches, athletes and trainers have not grasped; and this is why athletes are often disappointed with their speed training results.
What we have discovered is that muscles are best conditioned for speed using a strategy of isometric exercises with resistance bands.
This is a training technique that by it's very nature transfers speed qualities back into the muscles that are opposing them.
Isometrics using the resistance band, the way we teach it and the way we have shown you in the video, will unlock the blazing speed, acceleration and quickness of your fast twitch fibers.
The results will be dramatic increases in your athletic skills such as sprinting faster, kicking farther, jumping higher, or swinging a bat, tennis racket or golf club with more speed and power.
Increased speed will improve your athletic skills and help you become a better player - even if you are already a top performer. Your athletic career will be largely determined by how fast you are.
Once you start to exercise your muscles using this type of training, you will likely discover that up until now those muscles have been underdeveloped for speed.
And since developing your muscles for speed occurs much faster than training for strength or endurance you will start to see results in your sports performance in a matter of days - even if you are already in mid season.
The second key to improving your athletic performance is knowing precisely which muscles to condition.
Let's use the hip flexor muscle as an example (also known as the thigh flexors). It is the primary muscle group responsible for speed in sprinting. Proper conditioning of the thigh flexor muscle will increase your running speed like never before.
Collectively as a group, the thigh flexors are among the strongest muscle groups in the body - yet they are largely ignored in most training programs.
Ironically, in spite of their importance, if you are like most athletes then your thigh flexors are also greatly underdeveloped for their full potential for speed.
Thigh flexors or hip flexors. (See Arrow)
Main function is to raise your thigh and swing it forward.
This is the primary muscle group for faster sprinting speed.
The reality is that a lot of athletes, trainers and coaches are simply unaware of the importance of the thigh flexor muscles.
There can be many reasons why. Maybe it’s because at the gym there is typically not any single weight machine that can effectively condition these muscles and therefore they go unnoticed.
Maybe it’s because you really can’t see them since they are located deep in the anterior hip region further adding to their obscurity. Or perhaps people do not understand their importance or that they think they are training them when they really aren’t. But for whatever reason the thigh flexors are largely ignored.
With weak thigh flexors, your running speed will be significantly affected more than you could ever imagine. This is easily understood by defining their role in the running process.
The normal running process has three primary phases:
1 & 2) a Push and a Return phase when the foot is on the ground and
3) a swing phase when the leg and foot are moving forward.
It is during the acceleration portion of the swing phase where most of your running speed and power are generated. The “acceleration portion of the swing phase” is characterized by the flexing of the thigh upon the pelvis.
This is the main function of your thigh flexors.
The faster you can accelerate your thighs forward and upwards into this flexed position, the faster you will be able to run - it’s as simple as that!
The only way that I have ever been able to effectively isolate the thigh flexors is with resistance bands. No other method is more effective.
The only way I have ever been able to increase the speed of these muscles is with isometric training. Again, No other method is more effective at making these muscles faster.
This training strategy can be applied to any muscle group involved in an athletic skill. And often muscles that are often overlooked for training are crucial to the performance of that skill.
One key to getting speed in any athletic skill, swinging a bat or golf club, or kicking a soccer ball for example, is to train your muscles in the same plane as when the skill is performed. Isometrics with the resistance band is ideally suited to accomplish this.
The combination of using the resistance band with an isometric training strategy on the core muscles of any athletic skill, the way we teach it, is the secret to quickly improving performance in any sport- including football, baseball, soccer, basketball, tennis, golf, volleyball and lacrosse.
These exercise can be done basically anywhere. You don’t need to go to the gym to do it. You can do these exercises in the privacy of your own home in just a few minutes (like 15 minutes or less) a day. And they are appropriate for any age, fitness level or experience level.
We will show you precisely which muscles to develop and exactly how to develop them for speed.
Unless you have applied isometric training to your muscles using the resistance band, the way we teach it, you have a huge reservoir of untapped muscular energy just waiting to be released - even if you are already a top performer!
And always remember - being fast is not the same as being strong. You will need fast muscles to dramatically improve your athletic performance and become a better player.
Your friends, coaches and teammates will be amazed - and you will leave the competition in the dust!
By doing the exercises the way we show you, you can’t help but improve your sports performance and stand out from the crowd.

"I encourage all of my basketball players to use the Run Faster training. I have seen first hand the dramatic effects it has on my players speed. We didn't have this in the NBA when I played. Thanks Dr. Van Such"
Dennis Hopson Former NBA player, scout for the Philadelphia 76ers, Ohio State All American, and assistant coach at Northwood University.
This speed program is UNBELIEVABLE!
After doing the speed exercise for two weeks, I came from running a 4.65 in the 40 yard dash to 4.35 on the track with spikes.
I can't wait to see my time in the 40 yard dash on the football field with cleats.
Thank you, your speed program has been a blessing.

I am now a sophomore in college and I was still running the times I ran in my junior year. No matter what I did or how hard I tried, my times were still the same and they were not getting any better. I came upon this website and tried the exercise about every other day for about 3 weeks. I just had my first outdoor meet of the season, and I ran my personal best in the 800 (2:32) .. a time I have never ever ran in an open 800.
I am excited now to keep this up and see what the rest of the season brings, and hopefully I can break 2:30 which is a goal of mine that I have had for a very long time.

Recently I've been tryin to increase my speed for school track and field... so i did the exercise and after 2 weeks i found my 40 yard time had gone from 5.62 to 5.35 and my 100m time had gone from 14.4 to 13.45. also a week through this program and i beat my schools long jump record by 12 inches. I can't thank you so much...

I play soccer regularly and I always wanted to improve my speed in the game. I tried the exercise and I noticed a huge difference in just one week of doing this isometric exercise. The results of my times amazed me! I never expected to improve in such short amount of time! This great exercise program increased my speed and my opponents are having a hard time in keeping up with me! My performance now is truly impressive! I recommend this incredible program to everyone who wants to increase their speed. I can't thank you enough AthleticQuickness.com

As you well know, THIS WORKS!!!
I was skeptical at first, as there are so many people on the internet who claim to know the correct way to improve speed through the training of fast-twitch muscles.
I am a 33 year old semi-pro football player in Japan, who started playing again 3 years ago after a 10 year absence from the game.
I trainied as hard as I could to improve, but as stated on your website, I was unknowingly doing all the "slow-twitch" training that I thought was going to make me faster.
Well, after trying your system for a few weeks I started to feel much quicker off the line, and I was easily beating cornerbacks who were pressing me man to man.
I am a true beleiver in this system. There must be thousands upon thousands of athletes who could benefit immediately from this golden information.
Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. I can't wait to see how much more I will improve as I continue to train the CORRECT way for speed. Last week during wind sprints after practice, I was blowing everyone away. Including guys 10 years or more younger. THIS SYSTEM ROCKS."

"Well after just two weeks I gained 3 inches on my vert and have gone from one block a season to two a game, and from 2 rebounds a game to 6. I'm a shooting guard (6ft 2in, 28 years old). This the only product that works 100%. Thank you for your product actually working, thank you very much it rocks."

"The martial artist Bruce Lee is known for being pound-for-pound one of the fastest and quickest athletes the world has ever seen.
Through my research, I found out that isometrics were a big part of his training regimen.
As I was looking for ways to increase my own golf swing speed, I decided to implement isometrics in to my long drive training using the very same bands you can get here at athleticquickness.com. The results were phenomenal! I increased my club head speed to 155 mph and hit an event-record 421-yard drive to win a qualifier for the Remax World Long Drive Championships."

"Hi, I purchased your baseball program at the beginning of last years season. I must say that everything you said did come true. I was able to hit 5 HRs on the season, when I never have done that before. Thanks for that. You don't know how much that does for my confidence."
Orlanda M. - Chicago, IL
"I was receiving complements on my kick for it's speed, distance and the overall quality three days after starting. I have been working on the program for a month now and I have become a valuable part of my soccer team, all thanks to this program. I recommend it to anyone looking for an athletic edge in any sport."

I tried the exercise and in just one week found that my hundred time dropped from almost 8 tenths of a second!!!
This has been a mind blowing increase for me as I have always been trying to get fast. My 400 time also dropped. This one exercise has completely changed me as an athlete!!! These times are after just one week of using the program.
Anybody wants to get fast, USE THIS PROGRAM. I play rugby and this will help me immensely. Thank You AthleticQuickness.com!!!!

"I am 19 years old running track in college. I've tried many different training programs speed drills, weight training, plyometrics and NONE of them andI mean NONE of them gave me these impressive improvements.
You helped me so much. I went from running a 12.5 to qualifying for districts in the 100 meter dash. Last week I posted an 11.4 and I haven't done the program yet this year proving that the results stay with you after you discontinue use. THANK YOU!!! "
I was under the impression that weight lifting would make me faster. Luckily I stumbled upon your website and I got my dad to order the program.
I timed my forty at a 5.62 before this program. Now, after four weeks of doing this program I was able to time my forty and I ran a 5.16!
My goal is to break 4.9 by my birthday in a month. Even if I don't, this is an awesome speed training program and by far the best! Thank you! "
