The 2008 NFL Draft will be held April 26-27.
Millions of fans tune in to the NFL Draft, but many of us have never had a chance to see more than a handful of the players selected each year… until now! Draftguys TV gives football fans over 40 in-depth player profiles breaking down practice footage, training film, exclusive interviews, expert opinions, and more.
Hosted by Cecil Lammey and Sigmund Bloom, football fanatics will see the game as the NFL scouts see it – up close and personal.
In this special episode, Strength and Conditioning Coach Travelle Gaines explains the unique ways he trains pro clients for the biggest – and potentially most lucrative run and test of their life: the 40-yard dash.
After watching this video, I am not sure if I subscribe to some of the techniques used to improve on the 40 yard dash. For example, pulling a sled with your hands tied behind your back? I would think your arms and hands have a significant role in acceleration.
But if they run a fast 40 yard dash, hey, who am I to criticize?
Here is the video of The Secrets of the 40-Yard Dash:
UPDATE: Sorry, the video is no longer on YouTube.

Run a faster 40 without ever running a 40. wow. That is a concept.
So you have to ask the question what is his success rate versus failure rate?
What is the rate of improvement?
How do you talk about arm swing being so important and your main drill does not involve using your arms?
So back to the other stuff, what makes this guy so great, he does what everybody else does already, the same sit on your butt and pump your arms, the same use of a sled, the same core work the same Mach drills?

@Adarian – maybe that is why it is called SECRETS!
