Learn proper tips and detailed technique instruction from the NFL Combine Training Expert!

Dear Friend,

Every year I travel to Indianapolis to help you run a faster 40 yard dash. You are probably scratching your head asking how I was helping you in Indianapolis of all places? Each and every year I attend the NFL Scouting Combine to aid in the preparation for my athletes whom attend the annual meat market for NFL Scouts and player personnel directors.

How did they fare? They produced some serious results. Here is a sample of some of the results I have acheieved with my 40 yard dash techiques.

Joseph Addai - Colts - 4.37 sec. 40 yard dash (Fastest RB at the '06 NFL Combine)
Mark Anderson - Bears - 4.61 sec. 40 yard dash (Fastest DE at the '06 NFL Combine)
Lorenzo Booker -  Dolphins - 4.43 sec. 40 yard dash (Fastest RB 10 yard time of 1.46 sec)
Scott Young - Eagles - 5.03 sec. 40 yard dash at 315 lbs.
Amobi Okoye - Texans - 4.85 sec. 40 yard dash at 302 lbs.
Brandon London -  Giants - 4.47 sec. 40 yard dash
Reynaldo Hill -  Titans - 4.32 sec. 40 yard dash
Jackie Battle - Cowboys - 4.38 sec. 40 yard dash at 238 lbs.
Melvin Bullitt - Colts - 4.47 sec. 40 yard dash

And this is just a sampling of my results!

It is always a great experience to be there again this year and to see athletes perform under football's biggest scouting stage. It was also great to analyze technique on how the athletes performed their tests, especially the 40 yard dash in the most scruntinized, pressure packed enviroment, the NFL Combine. Three hundred and thirty three 40 yard dashes over six days. I was in heaven!  Now let me take that knowledge and help you run the 40 yard dash you have dreamed of! Think about these questions...

Do you know the optimal hand placement of your top hand?

Do you know what to watch for on video for your 40 yard dash technique?

Do you know how long your first step should be?

What clothing should you run in?

Joseph Addai - Indianapolis Colts - Super Bowl XLI Champion

Joseph Addai was the top performing running back at the 2006 NFL Combine where he clocked a scorching time of 4.37 in the 40-yard dash.

Joseph acheieved this result by executing perfect technique on his first step, something that he and Mike Gough worked relentlessly on in Florida during his NFL Combine preparations.

To understand how Joseph executed this perfect technique find out more in Mastering the 40 Yard Dash.

Mark Anderson - Chicacgo Bears - '06 NFL Combine

Mark Anderson went to the NFL Combine in 2006 with something to prove. Scouts had no idea how fast and explosive he was. He proved them wrong. He placed 1st or second in all of the tests for his group.

40-yard dash 4.61 sec.
Broad jump 10'7"
Vertical jump 42"
Three-cone drill 6.95 sec. 
Short shuttle 4.22 sec. 
60 Yard Shuttle 11.75 sec.

Mark's made the most of his 40 yard dash improvement by refining his starting stance and mechanics. TO learn the proper starting techniques Mark used find out more in Mastering the 40 Yard Dash.

Amobi Okoye - Houston Texans 1st round pick - 10th Overall '07 NFL Draft

Only 19 years old I often found myself shaking my head at Amobi Okoye's speed and athleticism. After tweaking his hamstring at the 25 yard mark during the NFL Combine, Amobi imporved his injury plagued 5.02 Combine 40 with a 4.85 sec. 40 yard dash at his Louisville Pro Day.

For a DT at 302 lbs. to clock a 4.85 sec. 40 yard dash, this seperated himself as the top defensive tackle in the 2007 NFL Draft.

How did Amobi run such a fast time? He worked on lengthening his acceleration phase which lead to a dramatic decrease in his 40 yard dash times.

Do you need to lengthen your acceleration phase? Find out more in Mastering the 40 Yard Dash.

Jackie Battle - Dallas Cowboys NFL Pro Day Domination

Jackie Battle's NFL Pro Day performance was one of the most dominating performances that Mike Gough has ever seen. Here is what he showed:
Height: 6020
Weight: 238 lbs.
40 Yard Dash
Short Shuttle
Three Cone
Vertical Jump 41"
Broad Jump - 10'7"

When Jackie first arrived to train with me he had no idea how to run the 40 yard dash. We had to start from scratch. He mastered the proper breathing technique and his times went down. To learn this critical component to a fast 40 yard dash time check out Mastering the 40 Yard Dash.
