Get Faster…Faster

So I’m watching THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER
and I see the #1 seed lose.
Why?
At least one of the reasons is that
his opponent is faster than him.
Speed Kills.
(which happens to be the very first article I wrote for this site)

Speed is probably one of the least trained faculties in sports.
I think I know why.
Some guys are strong.
Some guys are fast.
Some guys have good endurance.
That’s true…

but I think we sometimes forget that these are all trainable…
certainly if we know how to train them.

I recommend two ways:
The first way is directly
through a protocol which is very simple
and is something I have had my Martial Artists
do for quite some time.

If you do it right,
go faster.
If you do it wrong,
go slower.

Another way to train speed is to do so is indirectly.
When you are lifting,
if you lose speed, stop.
Start again when your speed returns.

When you are conditioning,
if you lose speed, stop.
Start again when your speed returns.

If you will do these things,you can be
the guy who seems to consistently get
faster
stronger
and more conditioned.

If you keep at it,
you may end up being the most of all of those.
