In the gym we are confident, regimented and consistent. On the pitch, we are confused, intermittent and sporadic. But what changes?
These aren't particularly frequent in sport, but skills here underpin LOTS of other actions
The subtle changes people make to how the execute this movement tells a story. Can you read it?
A simple way to finally understand cutting technical models! No more confusion
Perception speed and accuracy can have huge performance impact, but are you just expecting it to develop itself?
Ho athletes manipulate defenders and maximise adaptability at speed.
Is a step backwards before going forwards really what we want to see?
The first step in moving away from an acceleration and speed only approach is stepping. A hugely important quality which can open the doors to many more movement options
Another big step towards multi-directional expertise is getting athletes out of the sagittal plane
At some point we need to add reactivity and provide open situations
We've all seen the use of lights, colours and shouted words and COD stimuli, but are people wasting their time?
Should they be burned or used frequently on pitch. What role does foot speed have.
Maturation creates a whole host of challenges for multi-directional speed. But what are they?
Playing the game is important and useful. But its a very small component of what athletes need.
We LOVE speed development. But athletes aren't sprinters. They need more than linear acceleration
Does injury risk go up when performance improves?
Testing non-linear movements isn't easy, lets consider the levels...
We need to find a way to make this area more clear...

It isn't about going as fast as possible!
