The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Eccentric Speed Work...

    Been awhile since I've posted, but I've been lurking.

    I coach football in upstate, NY and we had a coaching clinic this weekend and a guy by the name of Dan Fichter came in and gave us a great presentation on isometric activities and how to really increase speed by doing more eccentric work. A quick explosive movement on the eccentric phase increases speed according to him. I buy into his theory. The muscle fires much faster in a fast eccentric movement than it does in a slower one, and since quick firing occurs during running it makes sense that it increases speed.

    My question is, how many of you buy into this kind of theory? And does anyone have a good link to take another look at? I'm extremely interested in this kind of training to go along with the power stuff.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    "Donít fall for the crap that people are peddling on message boards, in magazines or on TV. Get your **** in order, and get your training in order. Start kicking ass, and take out the crap that doesnít matter. Start doing and believing in the stuff that works, and do it today and forever. You want science and studies? **** you. Iíve got scars and blood and vomit."
