Strength is of critical importance for any athlete / adult, regardless of age.
Speed is the next gear that takes strength to the next level.
When I hear Coaches go on and on about strength and say nothing of speed I know they are missing the boat and vice versa.
We then have Coaches who act as if strength is a bad thing. There is NO such thing as weak and successful.
Not everyone who is strong is fast.
And speed is not simply running around cones or ladders. Where is the force production if all you do is tap dance?
Sprints, jumps, med ball throws and moving lighter weights at high speed is the ticket for developing speed and power.
You MUST build athleticism in athletes, which is the blend of strength, speed, power and movement.

This group of athletes began training with me in high school. This Video was from their Summer training in their early college years so they have built up a foundation for advanced training.
I cover all of these program design topics inside our SSPC Cert HERE.
