Feed the Cats: Building a Culture of High Performanceby Tony Holler
“SPRINT-BASED FOOTBALL II” is the 8th course of an ambitious “Feed the Cats” certification program created by Tony Holler.
Feed the Cats is a revolutionary way of training, coaching, and teaching that values specificity, essentialism, performance, and love. After gaining a world-wide following in Track & Field, FTC has now gained a foothold in American football.
This is the second football course of the program. There’s almost FOUR HOURS of detailed teaching. Coach Dixon first encountered the “Feed the Cats” take on football in 2017 when he read Coach Holler’s New Ideas for Old School Football Coaches. Since then, Dixon has become the flagship of the movement, going 39-7 in the past three seasons.
The first two FTC courses, The Speed Workout and X-Factor have a combined 2.5 hours of content, giving athletes (and coaches) everything they need to prioritize speed in the off-season. The third course, Block Starts, is arguably one of the most detailed instructional videos ever produced on the subject of block starts and acceleration. Record Rank Publish (over two hours) is the food of cats, the heart of the program. Sprint the 400 provides two hours of a Feed the Cats approach to training quarter milers.
More courses are on the way!
