Power: Quickness

Quickness is defined as the ability to react or change body positions with a maximum rate of force production through all planes of motion, in different body postures, during functional activities. A high nerve conduction velocity must be exhibited to express quickness, which means Quickness Training should be used not just for athletic performance, but […]

Power: Speed

Speed is defined as moving as fast as possible in an intended direction. To move at high speed consider these factors: the neuromuscular system must exhibit coordination to quickly turn on and off joints must have concurrent stability and mobility fascia and skin must be able to tolerate a high force demand and be highly elastic The […]
