Plyometrics

To improve the explosive properties of the muscles through Jump training. 

 

Speed

The goal of speed training is to have the arms and legs working as a unit in one direction, “Forward”. 

 

Acceleration

Here we have the difference between poor acceleration and good acceleration. 

The first athlete looks like he is getting a better lean than the second, but when you look at the body as a whole unit it’s not.  Bending at the waist and not driving the hips through is a common problem and is likely where power is lost during acceleration.
