Features & Benefits
with John Dettmann,
University of Wisconsin Director of Strength Training and Conditioning

During his tenure at the University of Wisconsin, John Dettmann's efforts have played a part in nine bowl games and three Big Ten titles. Strength and speed has played a major role in consistent success the Badgers have enjoyed. Coach Dettmann has put special emphasis into developing and manipulating speed. He is convinced that this program can add speed to any player regardless of position. The warm-up exercises include a dynamic lap, leg swings, runner stretch, and toe taps. Coach Dettmann believes in designing programs for the majority, not the minority. This philosophy guarantees the biggest impact on the greatest number of athletes. To develop increased speed, several excellent drills are displayed. Drills include Fast Hips, High Knee Fast Tempo, Quick Feet, Foot Fire and Seated Fast Arm drill. By using small hurdles, coaches teach the non-dominant side to be as efficient as the dominant side. Athletes improve because technique progresses from easy to complicated drills. Starting quickly is taught and enhanced by the Incline Starting drill, the Pit Start, Assisted Starts, and the Bullet Belt Start. Developing power through jumping is also a big part of Wisconsin's philosophy. The double leg jump for distance, double leg jump with small hurdles, double leg hops for heights, power skips and box jumps make up the power segment of the workout. Speed conditioning includes the tempo run, contrast speed with uphill resisted sprints and weighted vest sprint. This program gives any coach an advantage by developing speed throughout his program. The proof is in the results. Coach Dettmann's magic has turned 2nd or 3rd round draft picks into solid first- rounders. Players and coaches will immediately buy into this speed manipulation program and yield results on the field.

If find the DVD very useful if u wanna improve the general speed of u team! But if u don't have access to a facility with astro turf, some for the drills and exercises will be difficult to complete. Also I would have some more drills included in the DVD !

Coach Dettmann offers some good information on this video. He does a good job of explaining why he uses certain drills, and his approach to developing speed is beneficial to all athletes. I gave this video 4 stars, because there needed to be more specifics about lateral speed development and the plyometrics he uses in the program. Good video overall, and I would purchase again.
