3 Ways To Develop Functional Speed For Optimal Athleticism

3 Ways to Develop Functional Speed For Optimal Athleticism

Today I wanted to pull this killer article on functional speed direct from my archives for you. I published this article all the way back on July 8th, 2009! It’s hard to believe this one is 9 years old, but I promise the information is still valid.

In fact, it doesn’t matter whether you’re looking to develop a high level of fitness, or looking to compete in a sport you’re going to find this article very useful. Give it a read and apply this to your training and drop me some feedback on your progress in the comment section below the article here.

  1. Are you an athlete looking to develop functional speed for your sport or competitive event? 
  2. Are you interested in learning a new way to condition your body for your HIIT workouts? 
  3. Are you looking to build speed while also learning how to build an athletic body? 
  4. Are you interested in enhancing your reaction time and coordination?  

Are you looking to build functional speed? Functional speed in the context of this article is a fancy way of saying running fast with precision and confidence. We all have wanted to be fast a one time or another and that mindset has certainly not changed in today’s competing athletes. I have spent my entire career working with athletes at all levels of competition to enhance their athleticism and functional speed development. The two main things that most all of these athletes have in common is that they want to be strong and they want to be fast!

How Muscular Size Can Hurt Your Performance

How Muscular Size Can Hurt Your Performance

Having muscular size can have a lot of advantages, but there are some scenarios in which having a lot of muscular size can be a disadvantage and may even get in your way in terms of performance.

Some of these disadvantages can involve minor inconveniences such as having a tough time fitting yourself for clothes, getting in and out of small vehicles, and depriving yourself of a comfortable plane ride should you book a ticket for a long flight.

However, there are other scenarios where having muscular size can get in your way from a functional standpoint if you’re trying to compete and thrive in other sport and work environments in order to perform.

3 Ways To Construct An Athletic Functional Body For Optimal Fitness

3 Ways To Construct An Athletic Functional Body For Optimal Fitness

So today I wanted to revisit this older topic today by pulling it straight from the archives. The original publishing date for this piece was all the way back in July 8th, 2009!!! Yes, this one is old school, but the information is certainly useful. I thought you would find this list helpful in your journey if you’re looking to build an athletically functional body.

  1. Are you interested in learning how to develop an athletic functional body? 
  2. Are you training your body in a way to be optimally functional for any sport or life situation? 
  3. Are you curious as to how you can improve your training to help you move with greater control and confidence? 
  4. Are you training your body to be able to last over the long haul? 

The pursuit of an athletic functional body is a solid plan. I had a friend the other day that was just starting back into working out and he was asking me “what is the best thing for me to do to get back into shape?” I proceeded to tell him that he needs to start training like an athlete again. Why, he asked? I followed up by asking him at what point in his life was he in the greatest shape to which he replied “when I was doing preseason workouts for football in college.” I rest my case.
