Speed And Power For Football

If you don't think you need speed and power to play football, watch a college or NFL game on television. Each play ends in a train wreck! You won't be a very good football player without speed and power. You can improve your speed and power (how fast your muscles can produce force) for football and become a more dynamic player on the field. That's exactly what athletes are doing this week at Sports Fitness Hut's Speed and Power Camp.

See Speed Camp video on YouTube!

Speed strength is a combination of starting speed, explosive speed (maximum velocity in the shortest time) and reactive speed. Proper training methods will produce the strength, power and speed you will need to succeed in football.

The best football players have great amounts of strength, speed, power, agility and quickness. Straight-ahead speed is not enough. This is the main reason that many world-class track athletes don't make a successful transition to the sport of football.

Core strength is important to help you remain strong and upright when you are running, especially in the late stages of a football game. Adequate core strength helps your speed endurance, which is the ability to maintain maximum velocity or a percentage of maximum velocity for a prolonged period of time or in a fatigued state. The best players and teams have excellent overall body strength, core strength and speed endurance (and they win the most games).

I hope you have trained this offseason to improve your speed and power this season!
