Overspeed Training for athletes.. a gimmick?

This is an awesome article recently published on Elite Fitness Systems website.    When Charlie Francis(top speed coach in the world), Matt Nichol(Toronto Maple Leafs), and Milo(Cleveland Browns) all agree on something- I would pretty much hold it as gospel.

Since almost all high level hockey player have labral tears why would you do over speed on a hockey treadmill?  Doesn’t make sense there either…

In my track days, I personally used the bands for overspeed work and I felt “myself holding myself back”.  Kind of weird when I was attempting to program my body to move faster.?.?.?

Enjoy…
