What is Sport Specific Power and Agility? How can it help in my Sport?
Power, the ability to perform an explosive movement in the shortest time possible, results from the integration of maximum strength and speed. The combination of endurance and speed is called speed-endurance. Agility is the product of a complex combination of speed. Strength, speed, and endurance are important components of sports specific performance. In every athletic activity there will be one dominant component of which there is a higher contribution required. Depending on the sport, peak performance may be needed in more than one area. The relationship between strength, speed, and endurance create crucial physical athletic qualities. Thus in every sport there is a need for the application of power, strength and speed. Through periodized training the athlete trains each component of his/her sport not just one or two.
