This 1998 instructional video lasts 33-minutes, was produced and directed by Doug Fink, with narration by Dan Simeone, and David Anderson acting as host. Other contributors include Dr. George Dintiman who is co-author of "Speed, Third Edition" and Bob Ward, former Dallas Cowboys strength coach and masters track and field competitor. If you have wondered if you could improve your speed, then the answer shown in this video is "Yes", as long as you are willing to do the work that is outlined. After a brief overview the next nine minutes presents the five methods of assessing speed in order to identify an athlete's strengths and weaknesses. The five tests are outlined and demonstrated with precision. The tests include the 120 yard dash, leg press, leg extension/leg curls, leg hops, and quick feet test. You will be provided parameters of scoring each test using ratios, percentages, comparisons and charts that outline specifics based upon gender and age. The main concept is to identify weaknesses to devote maximum time in specific drills to correct them while maintaining the identified strengths. Specific drills to improve speed based on the assessment are outlined in five categories of training. Strength and PowerSprint Drills takes up most of this section with footage of drills done on grass as well as the track with catchy names like butt kickers, wall slide, quick heel drill, inside/outside bounding, down and offs, pull throughs, ladder drill, African dance, and drum major. Details for how many intervals make each set and how many sets to perform are outlined as well as what drills can be performed during a warm-up period. Speed Endurance Training is sports specific and involves maximum effort for a short duration with complete recovery. Over the course of the season the distance will increase while the rest decreases. Sport Loading adds extra resistance to running. This can be completed with the addition of a weigh vest, using stadium stairs, weight sleds, and harnesses training. Overspeed Training includes the use of towing with surgical tubing, downhill sprinting, and high speed treadmill. The last two minutes provides tips on the best time to take the assessment and a schedule to implement the drills for maximum benefit. The off season preparations are contrasted with the in season training to maintain strengths and build optimal speed for a successful season. If you are looking for an edge for increasing your speed, and will follow up with the effort of completing the drills, then this instructional video is a must for your program. This video is available in both NTSC format for those in North America as well as PAL format for viewers in Europe and parts of Asia.
