Product Details

Speed. There exists misnformation and confusion about what it is and how it is developed. Speed requires multiple anatomical systems working in highly coordinated unison--from the cross-body co-contractions of deep myofascial tissues to the pulsing contract-and-release cycle of the nervous system.

Book author Bill Parisi, the internationally recognized expert and founder of Parisi Speed School, deep dives into the physiological mechanisms of speed and provides evidence-based exercises and drills for you maximize speed in your athlete.

Using detailed photo sequences, enhanced with anatomical overlays, explore the different manifestations of speed, the biomotor systems that drive them, and scientifically proven training to develop:

  • Acceleration
  • Maximum velocity
  • Deceleration
  • Change of direction
  • Agility
  • Maneuverability
  • Speed-specific strength
Convert scientific research into practical applications, and select the most effective drills and exercises, and target training and a solid understanding of mechanics. Integrate science, art, and practical application and optimize your training effectiveness.
