“Jeff, my distance is dying”.
That’s the gist of the top answer when we poll our Crew asking, what’s your #1 challenge?
And it’s never close.
Distance pulls away from the pack like Secretariat’s 31 lengths at the Belmont Stakes to win the Triple Crown in 1973.
The truth is that as we get older, we gradually lose distance and power.
So, how do reclaim our distance? Can we reclaim our distance?
The answer starts waaay back in the early 90s…
Nirvana had just released Nevermind.
One of the best all-time movies had just come out – Goodfellas.
Carl Lewis held the world record for the 100 meters.
And nobody thought we could train speed.
You had it. Or you didn’t.
Sounds crazy now, but back then performance coaches focused their training elsewhere.
Then, a small group of coaches figured out something even crazier…we CAN train athletes to be faster.
And that’s exactly what they did (and still do).
These days, there are thousands and thousands of speed coaches, clinics, and gyms throughout the world.
Fast forward to October 18th, 2023. And another athletic revolution is just beginning to take shape with a lot of the original speed trainers.
But instead of speed, there is a rogue group of performance trainers who have uncovered that we can now train our bodies to be more elastic.
So, there is a system in our bodies that stores and releases energy, kinda like a rubber band.
And just like a rubber band…as it gets older and a little dry-rotted, it loses it’s springy-ness.
But, what if we could reclaim that springy-ness?
Now we can.
Through specific movements and training, we can turn back the clock on our explosiveness.
Here’s the “secret”: Multi-directional movements that place different loads onto our elastic tissues – things like lunging in all directions.
Or, doing push-ups with your hands in a variety of positions.
It’s a completely different way of training that can be done on it’s own or to supplement strength training (I HIGHLY encourage both).
Alright, I’ve got to put the finishing touches on our next training.
And if you’ve been following along, you can probably guess its going to have something to do with more distance.
If all goes to plan, we’ll be opening the doors in the next 24-48 hours.
Gotta run. So many yards to gain. And so many rubber bands to stretch:)
