Peak athletic performance often decides the success of your team. Barry Kagan covers everything in this video on how to maximize speed output, agility work, conditioning your athletes for game-time, and the importance of recovery to your workouts. When the overall commitment by the athletes is made, the outcome is evident once they step on the field.

Training Plan
Coach Kagan discusses how he and the Maryland Coaching Staff plan out the training protocol for the upcoming season. All workouts done throughout the year complement each other; speed workouts, agility drills and strength training are all included and revolve around the underlying component of maintaining proper conditioning. From post-season workouts, to spring training, and in-season workouts, Kagan describes in length of what is expected during each period of training including rep ranges, frequency of strength training sessions and how often players should be running.

Dynamic & Pre-Game Warm-Ups
Whereas most warm-up plans consist of long periods of time, Kagan's plan is really brief with the focus on getting the body warmed up and ready for the game. Long periods of stretching and warm-up drills can often extend the length of a game being counterproductive to what the goal at hand is. In the drills and stretches included, players are able to be completely ready for peak performance at a much faster rate than before.

Speed & Agility Training
Speed training is based on the two mechanisms of strike frequency and stride length. Strike frequency is how quickly the nervous system can fire and how quickly you can drive yourself to the desired outcome. While stride length is more of strength and production you put on each movement. Kagan covers how to use those mechanisms in seven specific speed drills as well as 18 agility drills designed to maximize your training sessions. These drills include sport specificity to enhance player morale during periods of strenuous drills.

The goal for athletes is to play at high intensity for extended periods of time. While conditioning is usually only related to the aspect of being able to run, you must be able to prepare athletes to not become injured. Running drills are usually kept short in duration and require change of pace while alternating intensity to mimic the strain of a full game.
