Acceleration is the initial link to maximum velocity running, as well as a critical component of multi-directional movement. The process of accelerating in a linear manner during athletic competition or training can be divided into three separate phases. This separation is based upon the demands and the mechanics required to achieve high rates of acceleration. The start, pure acceleration, and transition phases have subtle differences that must be classified and addressed specifically in training to ensure comprehensive competency.
I can honestly say that without Bob Harvey and his knowledge as a speed and strength trainer, I may not have had the same opportunities to go on and play college football. Bob is better than any of my previous collegiate strength coaches, and I am truly blessed to have met him and worked under his guidance. When training for him, he expects that you come ready to work hard and learn and he combines that with his knowledge of biomechanics to make you competitive with the best athletes. After only 2 months of training with Bob, my 40 time went from a 4.7 down to a 4.4. By the end of my high school recruitment, I was consistently putting up some of the most impressive combine results in the entire nation and won a number of awards for my performances. If you want to maximize your athletic potential, then Bob is the guy to bring that out of you. Trust me when I say Bob is the best there is!Shane McCullen
