The picture attached shows the body proportionally to the density of nerve endings per body part. When looking at it think from an evolutionary standpoint. How would each of the oversized body parts help primitive man survive? Four organ systems are oversized in the picture. The mouth and lips, the hand, the genitals (edited off […]

In our next several segments we will discuss: primary variables involved with MSF and how to improve upon them, and how other secondary variables effect speed. Also, we will enter into the agility realm by highlighting the concepts yielding the greatest carry over onto the field.
Today we get to talk about the fun part of Mass Specific Force (MSF), and that of course is increasing force. Strength matters. If two athletes both weigh 175lbs and from a skills perspective they are relatively similar, but athlete A doesn’t lift weights and athlete B can deadlift double body weight (2xBW), who do […]
So today we get to delve into MSF just a little bit more. When we talk about increasing an athlete’s force production, there are two ways it can be approached. We can either improve quality of movement (which improves the efficiency of your force production) or we can improve strength. A solid speed protocol should […]
So as you maneuver your way through the jungle that is the “sports performance industry”, you will undoubtedly run into dozens of “speed and agility” programs. This post is going to be posted in several parts but for today’s portion we will deal exclusively with the speed portion of speed and agility. When it comes […]
