Building the Perfect Speed & Agility Program ? How to Identify, Train and Speed Up Recovery While Sick
If you are an athlete (or know someone) that plays ball and stick sports like baseball, basketball, soccer, football, lacrosse or tennis, you don’t want to miss this podcast. Grab a pen and paper because during the first half of Podcast #14, Coach Robb walks you through the four key components paramount to achieving raw speed, explosive speed, top end speed, re-direction and sport specific endurance (along with ways to evaluate progress). He also explains why “punishing athletes” by running laps is reducing the athletes ability to improve explosive speed and endurance. After listening to the first half of the podcast, you will have the ultimate template for improving your ability to accelerate, decelerate, pivot and re-accelerate.
During the second half of the podcast, Coach Robb outlines the five key symptoms of a virus (versus being fatigued), how to speed up recovery when you become sick and how to properly train when you are sick.
Finally, as the people’s podcast, Coach Robb answers listeners questions about which style of heart rate monitor is the best; do digital scales work; are beans, butter and peanuts ok on the two-week food challenge, and is pouched tuna a good protein source.
