This is your Truth About Quickness Insiders Action


Program Manual.

===============
INTRODUCTION
===============
We have specifically prepared up to 48 weeks of training for you. There are three 16week cycles here, one each for the Beginner, the Intermediate and the Advanced.
How do you know where to start? Its actually pretty simple. Just ask yourself some of
these questions:

Do you move well on your feet?


Do people tell you that you move well on your feet?
Do you feel like you have heavy feet?
Do you have any experience with any of the drills or exercise in The Truth About
Quickness Insiders System? Are you proficient with them?
Are you truly quick in your games? Are you truly explosive in your games?
Have you been active and are you prepared to handle this type of training?

Based on some of your (honest) answers to those questions, you should have a better idea
of where to start. To be brutally honest, Kelly and I both believe that most athletes should
be starting with Cycle I of the Beginners programwhy?
Well, its not like the training in any of the Intermediate or Advanced cycles is that much
better; its just that its more intense than what youll find in the Beginners cycles.
So, you should only be using the Advanced training programs if you truly need the
more intense stimulation to continue to improve. If your body doesnt need such
intense methods and you still go ahead and use them, you could be looking at a solid
recipe for injury.
Furthermore, you should always strive to use the least intense methods to get the desired
results. If you can get good results using the Beginner programs, then thats is
absolutely what you need to be doing.
By going ahead and using the Advanced methods when you dont need them, you are
basically wasting lots of good, easier training that could be giving you the same results.
In a nutshell, this leaves you at the risk of plateauing a lot sooner than you need or
want to be.
So, our general recommendation: Unless you are an experienced, fluid athlete on their
feet, just start with Cycle I of the Beginners Program and progress from there.

========================================

THE TRUTH ABOUT QUICKNESS CHECKLIST


========================================
Now, before you begin, Kelly and I want to note a few things.

You should be doing the Ultimate Insiders Warm-Up as outlined in the DVD
before every workout, or at least some version similar to it.

You should probably also be doing some of the stretches and activation exercises
Kelly outlined in the DVD. Lets recap those now:

Foot Activation Drill- 2 x 15/side (Remember 3 points of pressure at the base of


big toe, base of little toe and heel. While maintaining 3 points of pressure lift the
toes and arch up and slowly lower the toes down while attempting to keep the
arch raised)
Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch- 2 x 20 seconds/side
Lying bent knee glute activation- 1 x 12/side (hold for a 3 count at the top).
Remember to contract the abs to increase the intensity of glute activation.
Standing glute activation foot on bench- 1 x 10/side (hold for a 3 count at top).
Remember to keep the plant leg entirely straight and increase the height of the
resting leg, as you get stronger.

=================
WEIGHT TRAINING
=================
A lot of athletes and coaches wonder what their weight training should look like in
conjunction with The Truth About Quickness training.
First of all, this training should optimally be done before your weight workouts.
Second, this training is more like a tweak to what youre already doing, instead of
some big, massive overhaul. So, you really shouldnt be changing much of what youre
doing already in regards to your weight training.
With that being said, Kelly and I have provided 3, sample, weight training workouts for
you. One for:

Bodyweight training (when you have no equipment)


Beginners (with weight training equipment access)
More Advanced Lifters

Here they are:

========================
Beginning Bodyweight Workout
========================
(Repeat every other day with weekends off)
Bulgarian Split Squat Isometric Hold- 2 x 60 seconds/side (work up to 60 seconds)
Bent Leg Single Leg Deadlift (stand on one leg and try to lower your off knee down and
touch the ground. Use a box or padding to decrease the range-of-motion until you gain
the necessary strength)- 2 x 10/side
Single leg calf raise on block- 2 x as many reps as possible/side (try to work up to 50
reps)
Plank- 1 x 60 seconds (work up to 60 seconds)
Repeat every other day with weekends off.
======================
Beginning Weights Workout
======================
(Repeat every other day with weekends off)
Session A:
Squat 3x5
Deadlift 1 x 5
Pull-Up 3x max reps
Bench Press 3 x 5
Calf raise: 2 x 20
Front Plank: 2 x 60 seconds

Session B:
Seated Row or Chest Supported Row 3 x 5
Squat 3 x 5

Bench Press 3x5


Military Press 3 x 5
Calf raise 2 x 20
Side plank: 1 x 60 seconds/side

===============================================
More Advanced Trainees Weights Workout (1.5 x BW squat)
===============================================
Session A:
Squat 3x5
Single Leg Romanian Deadlift - 2 x 10
Pull-Up 3 x max reps
Military Press 3 x 5
Front plank 1 x 60 seconds/side

Session B:
Power Clean, Seated Row or Chest Supported Row 3 x 5
Bench Press 3x5
Deadlift 3 x 5
Bulgarian Split Squat or Lunge 3 x 8/side
Side Plank 1 x 60 seconds/side

**Do session A on Monday and B on Thursday, or take 2-3 days in between each
workout and train on a revolving days format**
For example
Mon: session A
Thurs: session B
Sun: session A

Wed: session B
Sat: Session A
Etc.

=================================
REMEMBER THIS IN YOUR TRAINING
=================================

Remember the dancing analogy from the DVD? Focus more on ease of movement,
smoothness, proficiency, and making things easy rather than struggling to go so fast, so
high, or be so powerful that you tighten up. A good cue to give yourself is 100% speed
at 90% effort. This forces you to emphasize speed while being relaxed.
Also remember to become aware of how your feet are functioning when you move. You
should drive off the ball of your foot at the base of the big toe.
When looking at the routines many athletes are surprised by the relatively low volumes
they contain. Its important to note that improving in quickness is about QUALITY
rather than QUANTITY.
Keeping the number of exercises and total duration of training relatively brief allows you
to focus on IMPROVING each and every session rather than mindlessly going through a
bunch of drills.
We DONT recommend you go adding a bunch of extra exercises and sets to the
routines. You should leave each workout feeling relatively little fatigue and your last set
should be just as good (or very close) to your first.
Rest Intervals- Rest long enough in between sets so that you can give each set a good
hard, quality effort, but not so long that your muscles become cold. How long that is will
depend on your conditioning levels and the exercise.
Dont push the pace to the point that youre huffing and puffing before you even begin
each set. For most people 45 seconds to 2 minutes between sets is about right. Thirty
seconds is probably too short, but 5 minutes is probably too long. A few of the endurance
workouts might have you taking a 3 to 4 minute rest between sets.
If in doubt pretend that the next set you do will be a competition of some sort. Rest
as long as you think you need to be at your best for the competition.
