It is first important to describe the essence of strength to explain Pace Strength Training. There are many individuals who are inherently tough, but strength is a learned ability for most of us in which we have to condition our central nervous system and motor units by using resistance training to become stronger. Most of us must, by the same token, learn how to be fast. For years, strength and conditioning practitioners have touted that pace and strength are interrelated. Take a powerful athlete and make him quicker and he’s going to be better. The question is what kind of protocol are you using to make it quicker for the athlete? The closer a training activity is to a real athletic movement, the greater the probability of understanding the beneficial outcomes of the training. In football, you wouldn’t have him lifting really light weights slowly for failure if you needed a tackle to be able to drag or drive an opponent to the ground, would you? The response has everything to do with fast twitch muscle fibres versus slow twitch muscle fibres, speed strength components, and what sort of movements are used in strength speed training. You may find more details about this at Newell Strength.
Difference between Muscle Fibbers from Fast Twitch and Slow Twitch: A Generalization
Fast twitch muscle fibres may build tension and contract as fast as slow twitch muscle fibres about two to three times. They have less potential than the slow twitch to store oxygen and so they fatigue much quicker. In colour, the fast twitch fibres are white. They have iron and oxygen binding proteins called myoglobin in the slow twitch fibres, which give them a red pigment. Myoglobin is to muscle what haemoglobin is to blood, roughly speaking.
Simply put, the legs of a chicken are dark red) meat with slow twitch fibres and the white meat with fast twitch fibres is the breast (pectorals).
