Don't Add Speed to Dysfunction

Hello Everyone!

"Don't' add speed to dysfunction." - Gray Cook, physical therapist and strength coach

What does that mean? Don't add speed to dysfunction.

It is a warning to athletes. A warning against trying to perform movements faster when you are not performing them correctly in the first place!

It is like shooting a basketball incorrectly as fast as you can (or shooting a hundred shots in a row). Just because you are doing more, or doing it faster, doesn't mean you are going to get better.

Having coaches teach you the proper way to move, the proper way to perform, the proper way to play and THEN adding speed is how you become a better athlete.

Great athletes are great at the fundamentals. Great athletes learn the fundamentals first and then add the speed. Are you ready to be great?

Keep Training!
