How to Lift for Speed Without Time or Space: Mass Specific Force!

About the Session

"Mass Specific Force" is a unique, simple and extremely effective approach to lifting weights for increasing speed. It is applicable to many sport disciplines, especially those where speed is a key performance indicator.

In this distinctive and radical approach to the weight room, the training goal is to increase strength levels without increasing body weight. The increase in force applied to the ground in relation to body weight improves stride length and stride frequency... the holy grail to running faster! This system of lifting has directly benefited some of the top athletes in the NFL, NCAA, Olympics and High School level.

Efficiency is the key! Minimum time, minimum equipment while accomplishing the goal of large strength increase with minimal weight gain.

Notable highlights: Christian McCaffrey (Football), MaryBeth Sant (Professional Sprinter), Janine Beckie (Man City Soccer), Trabuco Hills HS in CA, Valor Christian HS in CO (Prominent T&F Programs)
