Turbocharge your acceleration

One of the best things about the modern gym is the sheer range of different ways you can exercise: it’s far more than just a pile of weights, and there’s no excuse for getting bored, or not changing up your routine to give you a fresh challenge.


This set of three exercises from specialists Back2Action are geared towards improving your power and speed, and is a real crossover routine: there are jumps over a hurdle, a step up drill with a barbell, and a resistance band workout that you can do with a gym buddy – all of which will produce the same end result – explosive results on the pitch.


This workout was designed by Rayan Wilson, director of Back2Action. Follow @Back_2_Action
