Feed the Cats: Rocket Fuel for Sprinters ft. Coach Kyle Edwardsby Tony Holler
“ROCKET FUEL FOR SPRINTERS” is the seventh 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.
“ROCKET FUEL FOR SPRINTERS” is the first FTC course from a guest presenter, Coach Kyle Edwards. One of the most important features of Feed the Cats is the world-wide network of coaches who have bought into the idea of prioritizing speed and explosiveness while de-empathizing conditioning, toughness, and high volume workouts. The focus on well-rested, happy, and healthy athletes is truly a departure from the grind of the traditional approach.
“ROCKET FUEL FOR SPRINTERS” gives the background needed to adopt the “Do Less, Achieve More” fundamentals needed to understand minimalist sprint training. The goal of the course is to give the off-season athlete everything they need to begin to indirectly train speed. The direct way to train speed is the subject of the first course, “The Speed Workout”.
Coach Kyle Edwards adds “rocket fuel” to the X-Factor catalog found in the second most popular course in the series, “FTC-102 X-Factor”. X-Factor includes drills and exercises that athletes should do when they are not sprinting (only sprint three times a week). Since X-Factor work is creative and changes from workout to workout, FTC coaches are always looking for new things to do and Coach Kyle delivers!
Along with “FTC-102 X-Factor”, “ROCKET FUEL FOR SPRINTERS” is a must for coaches heading into winter training. Nothing you will see on these videos requires a track. Everything can be done in a hallway, gymnasium, or any open space you can find.
More courses are on the way!
