Acceleration

The following video demonstrates how to improve acceleration and speed by resistance training with Myosource Kinetic Bands. Kinetic Bands help develop the fast twitch muscles that contract quicker for better acceleration, resulting in increased speed and momentum.

Training with Myosource Kinetic Bands will also help football players develop mobility in the joints so that the muscles in the legs, thighs, and hips are stronger and more flexible. This is why athletes who stretch, warm up, and train with Kinetic Bands are able to gain results faster.

Increasing Speed and Acceleration in Football

Football is a game of speed, skills, and endurance. Receivers and running backs need the ability to accelerate quickly for success in their positions. Working to increase speed is important, but they also need to learn to accelerate using proper form, technique, and mechanics. Acceleration is not something that football players only work on occasionally, but is something that should be a part of their every day workout and training routine. Making acceleration an instilled action will immediately improve a player’s performance.

Acceleration Warm Up:

Warming up with the Myosource Kinetic Bands is essential for improving acceleration. The tension from the resistance bands will cause the muscles to contract quickly and more explosively. Forward momentum warm ups should include simple movements, such as skipping, lunging forward, forward arm pulls, and high knee drives. A football player’s body endures an incredible amount of intense and strenuous movements, especially during acceleration, because they are often being pushed on by the defense. A great warm up with the Myosource Kinetic Bands will prepare the body for being able to accelerate through the defense. The Myosource Kinetic Bands will also work the hip flexors so football players can use their hips for power to accelerate. When performing drills for acceleration using the Myosource Kinetic Bands, football players should focus on maintaining the proper body position and make sure they do not drop the hips or stick out the butt.

Wall Drill:

  • Put on the Myosource Kinetic Bands and find a wall to use. This drill should not be performed on a hard surface because of the impact; a track or indoor facility would be best.
  • Place the hands on the wall and the body at a 45-degree angle with the back flat.
  • Run in place with the hands still on the wall and the body still in a 45-degree angle, driving the knees as high as possible.
  • Perform this drill for 15 seconds while wearing the Myosource Kinetic Bands and then immediately for 12 seconds with the bands removed.
  • When the bands are removed the legs will feel light and featherlike. Take advantage of this featherlike feeling for explosive acceleration and speed.
  • For the best results perform this drill 5-6 times, 2-3 times a week.

Football Four Point Stance Drill:

  • Put on the Myosource Kinetic Bands.
  • Get down into a four point stance with the body weight shifted forward.
  • Begin by bringing the right knee up towards the chest and then immediately back down.
  • As the right foot is coming down, the left knee is brought up to the chest, putting the player in a running motion.
  • Continue this running motion for 15 seconds while wearing the Myosource Kinetic Bands, then perform drill again without the resistance bands for 12 seconds.
  • Perform this drill 5-6 times, 2-3 times a week.
