A breakdown of contrast training and how you can use it to become faster, more powerful and explosiveness.
Show Notes

In this episode Gerry gets into everything there is to know about contrast training.

Contrast training is a training method that pairs a resisted activity with an unresisted speed movement. The resisted activity helps the athlete exploit post-activation  potentiation (PAP), otherwise known as the phenomenon of high firing rates of muscles immediately after they are contracted at high rates.

Find out how Gerry uses this protocol with his athletes, his recommendations for how to organize your rest time and his favorite contrast training pairings for lower and upper half explosiveness, power and speed.
