There’s an argument to be made that strength training is more important to getting faster than speed work itself. And, depending on my mood, I might agree.
That’s why I have to take a deep breath each day we go into the weight room. Because that segment of practice is probably the most exhausting part of my day. If athletes are not performing core lifts (like the squat) correctly, they are both setting themselves up for an injury, but also not getting anything out of this fundamental part of our training. Because I’m anal about technique (we even skip a very specific way during our warm ups) I demand perfection in the weight room. And that starts with me.
I know that I’d rather do speed stuff than weight room stuff. But I’ve got to continue to get better teaching the lifts and their variations. I’ve followed Eric for some time now and this program is excellent.
