Joe Aratari on Twitter “If you’re trying to be the best ATHLETE, working out 5-6x a week in the gym is not the answer.... Yep...Coming from a strength coach. 2-3x (maybe 4 for some sports) in the weight room and honestly 5-6 days at practice and/or doing skill work.”

Advice from an expert.


What's your excuse?

VelocitySP Education on Twitter 03/08/2021

VelocitySP Education on Twitter

This is why I coach sprinters to get the front leg thigh up to hip height and step over the opposite knee and drive down. Takes multiple reps to see improvement.

VelocitySP Education on Twitter “If trying to reduce backside mechanics and residual phase, or increase the thigh block height, you can often coach the body position. Diagnose the problem. Reduce excessive anterior tilt and you might see a lot of things clear up. Body position is first for a reason.”

Michael Johnson on Twitter “This article was after I didn’t make the final of the ‘92 Olympic final. I cried, I was angry, and I briefly doubted myself. But then I set some new goals. After failure DON’T: Doubt yourself or suppress emotions. DO: Reflect, assess, and then set new goals and move forward.”
