The 40 yard dash is sometimes the deciding factor in playing time, scholarships and ultimately getting drafted. At the NFL Combine, the 40 yard dash is the most talked about number out of all the tests.

Football rules can be taught. Football skills can be taught. But what about raw speed? Improvements in speed and mechanics that develop game breaking football speed can be made quickly and easily.

But first you have to get rid of Old School training methods. For example, ask an athlete to warm-up prior to a workout or test and they will begin to static stretch. It is engrained from elementary school gym class days that static stretching will prepare you for your activity. Pure garbage!

In this video, Derek works with two young athletes in an effort to improve their overall sprint performance for the 40-Yard Dash. This is a real-time instruction session that includes all components of a comprehensive sprint workout, including:

  1. Introduction
  2. Warm-up
  3. Sprint Drills
  4. Acceleration Mechanics
  5. Start Technique
  6. Forty Yard Dash
  7. Strength and Power Drills for Sprint Performance
  8. Cool down and Stretching

The techniques presented in this video are the fundamental building blocks of any linear speed program. Football athletes, as well as any other athletes that require acceleration and top speed will benefit from the material presented.

“Derek Hansen is one of the most outstanding trainers I have ever worked with. His knowledge and skills as a speed-strength coach are exceptional. Time and time again he has proved to be an excellent resource for me and has undoubtedly made a significant impact in increasing my performance.”

Adam Braidwood – 2006 CFL Number One Draft Pick, Starting Defensive End for the Edmonton Eskimos.
