INTRODUCING THE TESTS: BY DIRECTOR OF PERFORMANCE ANDY HANLEY
40 YARD DASH
The forty remains the grandfather of all tests. While its significance has wavered in recent years in terms of a poor showing, hurting draft status, it is still where decisions can be made and suspicions confirmed. The training goal is to optimize current capabilities reprogramming athletes’ nervous systems to increase running efficiency.
3 CONE DRILL
The 3-cone drill will highlight an athlete’s ability to maintain and contain movement speeds in confined spaces while navigating turns under pressure. This test should not be run the same by all athletes and our methods will align the appropriate technique for the individual athlete.
The 20-yard shuttle is designed to test lateral speed, power and coordination. The money in this test is made coming in and out of the cuts. How an athlete angles in and out of cuts will determine movement efficiency, speed and times. Teaching the athlete how to leverage the ground to their advantage is paramount in ensuring weight room gains are transferred to test execution.
225 BENCH REP TEST
The 225-bench test is a measure of strength endurance. Repetition testing is a skill that has to be developed. The test should last anywhere from 30 to 40 seconds so athletes must be adequately conditioned to sustain power output for this period of time. Athletes will train across the full strength/speed spectrum for this test encompassing max strength days, dynamic effort days and speed/test days.
The jump tests provide an indication of starting or explosive strength, the rate at which an athlete can produce relative to their body mass. There is an understood correlation between the jumps and an athlete’s ability to accelerate in any given direction. These tests showcase raw athleticism with the numbers that are then used (within an equation) to demonstrate individual power output/wattage.
Chris and his team of Pro-OTA Football coaches drill the players on combine position specific drills & routes almost daily. We also conduct Video Analysis sessions that speed up the learning curve and help the player develop more consistency and perfection in preparation for these tests. Our experience on the field and off proves to be priceless for these college athletes looking to make an NFL roster.
