THE WINNER OF the
NFL's fastest-man competition pays $12,000 a year to build his core at Athletes
Performance in Tempe, Ariz. He says the investment has made him the player he
is today--and thus made him rich. "I came here out of college, and then I
signed for a $13 million bonus," says Hall, 22. "My next contract I'll
get maybe a $25 million bonus. I'll take that turnaround." Here's a sample
of Hall's "movement" regimen.
Walk DRILL With feet shoulder-width apart, and bands taut across the thighs and
ankles, Hall walks 10 yards forward, 10 yards back. Twice. PURPOSE The bands
force Hall to use his hips and glutes to move. Employing the glutes instead of
relying mostly on the quadriceps--the muscle most people naturally favor--adds
power and reduces injury risk.
