If you like to go fast, this episode is for you.
This week we interview PJ Nestler at Velocity Sports Performance. PJ works with some of the top athletes in the game, ranging from top MMA fighters to athletes in the NHL and NFL. We stopped by his facility to pick his brain about speed training, and the misconceptions around this training adaption.
Little known fact- most people who are doing “Speed Training” are in fact not actually hitting it like they could. There are a few reasons why, but the big one is simply because true speed training doesn’t actually feel like a balls to the wall training session …like say, a tough Weightlifting session or an intense metcon.
PJ and Andy nerd out on the science in this one and bring to light how to tackle speed training effectively, and how you can apply it into your programming. We chat about how to know when your body is ready to hit a speed training session, what type of movements and protocols you can use, and a bunch of other gems around getting fast.
PJ also has a special offer for the Shrugged listeners.
If you are a BJJ competitor or anyone looking to take on a balanced strength and conditioning program, he’s put together a 12 week program to help you get more athletic on the mat.
