Gerry DeFilippo
A breakdown of sprinting and what contributes to speed!
Show Notes

In this episode Gerry tackles a topic every athlete and coach can benefit from. Speed!

We have all heard the expression "quick feet," utilized when it comes to sprinting and getting faster, but is it correct to say speed comes from quick feet? Gerry explains how the ankles, knees, hips, hamstrings and the overall series of leg muscles come together in order to rapidly and forcefully move the feet and drive speed.

Then, after debunking the quick feet debate, he gets to explaining how a beautiful combination of force/strength and speed/elasticity of the muscles come together to make a fast athlete and how you can improve upon both to become faster yourself!

All things speed and much more on this episode of Muscles and Management!
