1. Speed: Movement and Performance
In this chapter, Dr. Vagy will discuss a framework to assess and treat athletes to improve their speed, power, and agility. He will introduce advanced techniques to properly assess these three key components of sport and present strategies to make them easy to assess within the clinic setting. He will teach you the four main components of speed: reaction time, acceleration, maximum velocity, and speed maintenance. He will go on to show you how to quantify speed with both movement and performance testing in a clinical setting and how to use the results from your testing to improve speed performance.
