Show Notes Chapter Markers

A player’s 40-yard dash results at the NFL combine can mean the difference in millions of dollars for elite athletes. Every decade, we see faster athletes in every sport across the board. 

In today’s episode, Gray & Lee breakdown the anatomy of speed, discuss how athletes try to improve it, and what are some pitfalls when trying to obtain it. We cover POSE running, quickness vs. speed & a lot more. 

Gray also elaborates on the origin of the FMS screen. How one athlete, a sports hernia, and a room full of professionals turned into 7 napkins on a Delta flight.
