RUN FASTER & JUMP HIGHER Training & Techniques
Though some people are built with natural capabilities for speed or jumping, there are many athletes that surpass them by developing and training their bodies properly. Some natural runners and jumpers get lax because things come so easy for them, leaving opportunity for others to surpass them. They get left behind to those who are persistent with their training. Regardless of your current capabilities, exercise can make a great difference in the way you perform and the development of your body.
FAST-TWITCH FIBERS – Developing fast-twitch fibers and strengthening the right muscles can make a huge difference. These programs are highly effective and can be game changers for athletes. Most such programs include stretching exercises and scheduled fluid intake to mitigate against injuries. If you are interested in improving agility for speed and jumping higher, you may consider starting a program sooner than later.
WARNING: You should always consult a medical professional before starting any training program to make sure you don’t injure yourself, and also to prevent taking a step in the direction that will work against your goals. The wrong programs can really hurt you. Do not take advice from others, without running it by a medical professional first.
WARNING: SOME EXERCISES CAN STUNT YOUR GROWTH, ESPECIALLY HEAVY WEIGHT LIFTING
An important thing to remember while developing a training plan is to understand that your brain and muscles need to work together. It takes both. Just as a car computer sends messages to the engine to make sure all of the moving parts work together, your brain needs to be engaged while working with your muscles to make sure everything runs smoothly, without breaking.
If you only complete one part of the training you are taking a chance of injuring yourself. So make sure to use a program that involves a complete package. You will not only become faster, you will love the way you feel and look.
KEEPING THE ABOVE IN INFORMATION IN MIND, HERE ARE SOME EXERCISES YOU CAN DO ON YOUR OWN TO IMPROVE YOUR SPEED AND JUMPING CAPABILITIES:
SPEED & AGILITY TRAINING ITEMS YOU CAN PURCHASE AND HAVE DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR:
These items are great for developing skills for most age groups. They are fun, easy to follow and can create an advantage for children who start enjoying them at early ages. Have fun competitions when using them. Use a stopwatch to compete with yourself and others.
ASK YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING ANY HEALTH OR TRAINING PROGRAM
Some good reads: Using proper stretching can help speed, jumping, and can also help grow your body naturally.
JUMP HIGHER TRAINING EQUIPMENT & TRAINING
WARNING: Though these exercises can be highly effective, they can be dangerous if started too early in age, or if your body is not developed to protect against injury. The highest injuries in girls sports occur from sports that require jumping. Make sure you consult your doctors before starting any of these programs.
WARNING: SOME EXERCISES CAN STUNT YOUR GROWTH, ESPECIALLY HEAVY WEIGHT LIFTING
Ask your doctor before starting any training. Make sure it is right for you.
ADVANCED TRAINING: Sophisticated speed coaches use treadmills with harnesses to take your weight off a little, so your body and mind can learn how to accelerate faster. They also work on specific muscle groups to strengthen them, so you don’t injure yourself as your abilities grow. You will need to make sure you stay hydrated, stretch properly, and use proper nutrition. Though highly effective, these programs can be expensive and not affordable to all.
Though costly, it is something to consider if you are concerned about a flaw in execution or need a correction in your gate, as just a session or two will allow the trainer to determine and council you on technique and proper execution to benefit your future training.

TYPES OF PEER PRESSURE
UNSPOKEN PEER PRESSURE – This is the peer pressure you feel without anyone saying anything. It’s a feeling of wanting to belong. A pressure we put on ourselves to be fashionable with a trend or to impress others. Though not always bad, these pressures can cause us to be better and also make mistakes.
If you feel like you have to do something to belong, make sure it is something good, that won’t hurt you, your future, or others. If it is dangerous or involves drugs, other substance abuse, or sex, make sure you really think it through before acting. Since it is pressure you have put on yourself, take the time to think about it before you act. Think about the consequences and how it can affect your future. Is it really worth it? Will you see these people after high school? In most cases, you won’t and if you do, you will want to think about how they perceive you as adults.
2. SPOKEN PEER PRESSURE – This is when someone or a group asks you do join in and do something with them. It can be something good like being on team, in a play, or to be in a school study group. It can also be not so good, if you are being asked to do something bad, or something that will hurt you, your future, or someone else, such as asking you to do drugs with them. Here is a video worth watching on how to avoid costly mistakes.
3. INDIRECT PEER PRESSURE – Much like unspoken peer pressure, this pressure is caused by a feeling of wanting to belong, or that certain acts are desirable, because someone else is doing it. Cool people do drugs, so I should try them. Little do they know that the cool people druggies will end up with scarred faces from picking themselves and will likely end up on the street careerless or in jail when they grow up. Young people are impressionable and thought to be stupid by the cool drug dealers, which is why they are targeted. Hopefully there is enough education for the kids to see things that can go wrong, before they make a life changing mistake. The positive side of this peer pressure, is that they can also feel like they have to do better at something to be on a team, a study group, or in a class with the students they want to spend time with.
4. DIRECT PEER PRESSURE – Spoken or Unspoken this Peer Pressure
5. POSITIVE PEER PRESSURE –
6. NEGATIVE PEER PRESSURE –
