Physical Qualities 3: Speed and Agility

Physical Qualities 3: Speed

The first step toward enhanced physical fitness at any age is to establish a systematic, productive, safe, and enjoyable conditioning program that addresses the following four factors: stamina, flexibility, speed, and strength. In this program viewers learn the importance of speed and agility training in any regimen designed to improve athletic performance and promote overall physical health. Viewers are shown several techniques for reducing reaction times, increasing the length and frequency of strides, and promoting quick coordinated movements, all of which are essential elements of speed training. The program reminds viewers that the development of athletic speed requires total concentration and intensity, as well as technical proficiency. The most effective speed training regimens consist of performing progressively demanding tasks over relatively short distances. They also allow for complete recovery between exercises, so that each new task can be accomplished at peak performance levels. Viewers learn how athletic agility - the ease and efficiency of movement - is a key component in overall speed development. Student athletes demonstrate several indoor and outdoor training schemes for improving both speed and agility, such as short series sprinting, assisted or inverse slope training, and circuit training, challenging regimens which can be tailored to meet individual needs and easily adapted to available training facilities. 00/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
