Boom!

It’s a soccer kick, a football tackle, home run swing, knockout punch, slam dunk, golf drive, tennis serve or any other athletic movement that requires maximum power to be delivered in a split second.

You have trained for endurance. You have trained for strength. The last advantage that you need over your opponent is the explosive power that will overcome any resistance to you scoring. To do that, you must train and prime your muscles for that distinct advantage.

You have two types of muscle fibers in virtually every muscle in you body. Your type I, or slow-twitch muscles fibers are important to train for endurance with high rep workouts, such as the Tick Tock Challenge 600 Rep Workout. These fibers keep you going through your match, round or four quarters.

Your type II, are strictly for quick fast movements and are key to exercise for explosive athletic power. Unfortunately, most of the time, these muscle fibers are not exercised and don’t have a chance to grow and improve.

When exercising for power, you must put 100 percent of your attention and energy into each individual rep. Push as hard and as fast as you possibly can. Quality, not quantity, is key to building power with this 20-minute circuit workout. Include this workout regularly into your schedule to increase force behind every movement you make…
