Defining a Training Target : Max Strength or Rate of Force Development ?

In a recent article, I wrote about the link between Strength and time of movement,introducing Rate of Force Development and defining Explosive Strength as the ability to exert maximal forces in minimal time. The key concept is that for many movements, the time it takes to develop full range of motion may not be enough to also express […]

Explosive Training : a guide to understand Rate of Force Development and how to increase it

Rate of force development (RFD) is merely a change in force with time. The change in force over time can be expressed either as an equation: difference of Force / difference of time between two given instants or plotted on a graph with F on the y-axis and t on the x-axis. Therefore it is the slope of the Force Time curve. […]
