Over the past five years, no training program has prepared local high school and collegiate athletes better than Revolution Athletics. We have consistently produced the fastest 40-yard dashes and top performers in all of the combine drills. We have mastered the tips and techniques behind each drill and teach our athletes the exact steps needed to master each drill in order to improve test scores. At Revolution Athletics, our combine athletes will go through individualized training designed to enhance results in each drill but to also improveand improving upon any specific weaknesses. Combine drills are regularly practiced but more importantly filmed and broken down in classroom sessions, instilling the proper athletic foundation while maximizing output for each athlete.
40 Yard Dash
Some may assume that the 40-yard dash is simply running down the field as fast as you can. That would be correct if every hundredth of a second didn’t make the difference between a Div. 3 or Div. 1 schools recruiting you, or determine whether or not your athletic career continues after college. Every step of the 40 is scrutinized in training, beginning with obtaining the proper stance and concluding with how you finish through the line. With this in mind, at Revolution Athletics, we utilize slow motion cameras throughout the progression of the 40, in order to correct potential flaws and locate areas where improvement is possible. Some of the factors of the 40 include weight distribution in your stance, body angle throughout the drill, knee drive, the angle of your feet, and arm angle and movement. At RA these areas are improved upon not only by repetition and visualization, but also by resistance training, specialized drills, and exercises, which all improve athletes’ body coordination and control.
An ongoing theme at Revolution Athletics is that every combine drill is broken down step by step. In preparing for the pro agility, an athlete must take into account; stance, weight distribution, proper technique of the drill, body angle when changing direction, and acceleration from various angles. At Revolution Athletics, Justin dives even deeper into proper technique by involving foot placement, different areas of flexibility, and points of acceleration and deceleration. Efficiency is the key to speed in this drill.
Power relates to the speed at which something is moved. Resistance training and specified exercises are utilized in order to maximize an athlete’s power so that he/she may jump as high and far as possible. Both jumps have specific techniques that are addressed.
Much like the Pro Agility, the 3-cone drill accentuates change of direction, quick acceleration, and well-timed deceleration. Step by step, Justin instructs athletes how to most efficiently perform this drill. To improve, specialized footwork drills and repetition will be utilized, as well as slow motion visualization.
Muscular endurance is the key in this drill. This is improved by resistance training, which each member of the Revolution Athletics staff is well versed in. Athletes are provided specialized equipment (only available at RA) and are guided through strength programs designed specifically to improve muscular endurance. Furthermore, Justin will assist in nutrition, which is essential to improving muscular development.
Our method of training incorporates 3 different modalities; Speed & Agility, Strength, and Recovery. Combining these 3 methods during athletes off season allows them to see steady improvement and avoid training plateaus throughout the training cycle. However, if an athlete is in season there is an emphasis on Strength and Flexibility giving them the best opportunity to play at the top of their game toward the end of the season.
