In this section, we will focus on the most important piece of equipment. Your body! It is designed to provide tremendous power, if you
train for it. The first step is to understand what your body can produce for power at this moment in time. We’ll begin with a series of Power Assessments to establish a baseline. We’ll also look under the hood to determine what kind of car you drive with a trip back to childhood.
From there, we’ll dive into understanding our muscles. Our bodies are intricate systems with a Central Nervous System (CNS) in the driver’s seat. And when it comes to generating power, the CNS needs to command a specific type of muscle called Type IIx. Type IIx are explosive muscles. They can provide quick bursts of energy (i.e. sprinters). This type of muscle, however, fatigues quickly. Another muscle type is called Type I. These are our everyday and endurance muscles. They are slower to fatigue. (i.e. marathon runners).
