Improving a Female Athlete’s First Step

Improving a Female Athlete’s First Step

“First step” is another term for acceleration.

Building acceleration doesn’t need to be complicated. Rather, it’s as simple as this blog post will be:

  • Perform fast twitch movements: max velocity sprints and hops, broad jumps, and med ball throws
  • Utilize chest to ground and plank starts, band resisted accelerations, and hill sprints
  • Lift weights and increase glute and hamstring strength


That’s pretty much it.
