Training Tips by Tony Villani form XPE Sports!

September 27, 2012

Tony talking to future College Athletes!

Tony is a world-renowned trainer known for his unmatched ability to make any… and every athlete he trains faster, more explosive than they’ve ever imagined.

A lot of high school athletes play sports to try to attain a college scholarship.  Most of these athletes know one thing that has become common knowledge – SPEED KILLS!  Speed is the #1 factor that is used when judging athletic success and ability.  The problem is, a lot of athletes think that more training is better training for improving speed.  I don’t know how many times I go and watch high school kids training for “speed” and literally run themselves into the ground.  Although they are working hard, they are NOT improving SPEED, they are improving ENDURANCE.  An over-trained athlete will never be at their genetic potential for speed. To improve speed, one should follow the simple XPE (www.xpesports.com) formula and to be very careful to not over-train.

Phase 1Learn sprint mechanics and get the body in aerobic shape.  Work on such drills as high knees, butt kicks, and longer runs.  An XPE Speed Specific Warmup which activates the correct muscles in a strategic order is a great way to focus on active flexibility, sprint mechanics, and muscle memory.

Phase 2 – Develop stride length.  Once form and aerobic conditioning has been developed in phase 1, an athlete should work on the easiest thing to improve…the biggest “bang for you buck”…STRIDE LENGTH.  A simple way to do this is with hill runs.

Phase 3 – Learn how to accelerate into top speed (stride length) and how to turnover your stride.  Sleds, push up starts, ladder drills focusing on arm drive, and moving from hill runs to flat runs are various ways to accomplish phase 3.

Phase 4 – De-load and peak.  Here is where the athlete performs all out sprints WITH A LOT OF REST PERIODS between sprints.  Your training and overload took place in phases 1-3, phase 4 is not the time to continue to increase your workload.  Phase 4 is the time to peak the gains you made from phases 1-3.

Since its inception, Sportrait has been relentless in its pursuit to bridge the gap between young athletes and their dreams of taking their game to the Next level.

To make it to the next level in sports in today’s world many times it isn’t enough to just be a great player.

There are countless variables that can make or break the future for many athletes… so rather than sitting idly by, waiting for that phone call… that recruitment letter in the mail… that visit from the school of your dreams… or that all illusive sponsorship… Act NOW and become an aggressive advocate for yourself, your child, or any athlete you see promise in.

Sometimes the difference between receiving any of the above mentioned once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and having your dreams crushed is as simple as having the proper network in place providing for your maximum exposure.

This is where Sportrait comes in…

Sportrait provides a one-of-a-kind social media platform allowing its members to create a unique profile of themselves.

This recruiting breakthrough enables users to cut through much of the ‘red-tape’ and political jockeying that has become the harsh reality in today’s sports.

We’ve seen time and time again some of the best athletes in the country fail to make it to the next level, not due to their abilities, but because they lacked “connections” (an insider that has the ‘right’ persons ear).

Sportrait has teamed up with many of the most respected people in the sports world today.

And through these relationships have gained traction among colleges… professional organizations of all sorts… and a laundry list of the best sponsors.

Relying on traditional means to reach the next level is like playing roulette – and if you’re anything like me, you don’t gamble when it comes to your future… or your child’s future.
