You're a hockey player and you want to increase your shot power. Popular belief says it's all in your wrist...but is it really? Isn't power generated from your core and hips?
A new training device, called the passive leg press, allows athletes to train eccentric and concentric movement and increase their contraction velocity, resulting in better power, speed, and jumping.
The ability to produce force quickly is the definition of power and it is useful in sports from martial arts to team sports. Plyometrics can help develop power, but first learn to do them safely.
