Wall Drill Training for 40 Yard Dash

One of the Simplest drills you can do for improving your acceleration phase of the 40 yard dash is by performing wall drills. These require no high tech equipment and produce great results.

In the 40 yard dash the longer you can accelerate the faster you can run. Forward body lean is essential to acceleration. Wall Drills force your body to feel and fire at an exaggerated acceleration angle. When performed properly it fires the hip flexors and gives you that burst off the start.

For 40 yard dash specific walls drills implement my breathing technique with each set. Remember that each set should be short burst with your key thought being keeping the knees firing up and the feet landing back. You want to maintain a 45 degree agle throughout the upper and lower body.

If your hip flexors fatigue or are in-flexible, the body will break the 45 degree angle and you will not be able to maintain the leg drive. You will look as if you are doing a butt kick warmup drill.

While Wall Drills are just one exercise they allow you to feel acceleration an ultimately will enhance your 40 yard dash.

Have you seen Mark Anderson?

Wow, sometimes I have to pinch myself. Last night I was taking in Monday Night Football's Cards vs. Bears game. Actually I was taking in my client Mark Anderson's first NFL Start.

You see, Mark Anderson killed the NFL Combine, a 42 inch vert, tops in the shuttle tests, tops in the 40. On draft day, he slid to the 5th round. He was mad, I was mad. We had something to prove.

Now after 6 weeks he has shown the critics worng. 6.5 sacks with limited playing time. He leads the NFL.

Take that.

Last night I had chills watching him turn the corner and nail Matt Leinart between the numbers causing a fumble and a Bears TD.

That is the effect my "Training for the NFL" has on athletes. It allows them to become faster, more explosive and translate to the field where my guys are making the plays.

And it is just not Mark. High School, College, and NFLer's are getting these results.

Hop On Board and Get Training!
