Muscles Needed for Speed

Shoulder Flexor Muscles
Shoulder Flexor Muscles for Running and Jumping

Just How Important Are They? If you knew just how important your shoulder flexor muscles were for speed, then you’d probably invest a lot more time in training them.  This is because your shoulder flexor muscles create much needed thrust to go along with the leg pushing off the ground helping you to run your very best. Meet the Shoulder Flexor Muscles. The shoulder flexors muscles, also known as the arm flexor muscles, consist of 4 muscles.  Their names are 1) anterior deltoid, 2) pectoralis major, 3) biceps brachii and 4) coracobrachialis.  See Figure 1 below: Figure 1.

Strong Calf Muscles = Faster Running Speed!

There’s More to Your Calf Muscles Than You Know! Getting your calf muscles stronger will go a long way toward helping you achieve a faster running speed. It will also go a long way toward helping you jump higher and farther.  But, there’s more to appreciate about your calf muscles than simply knowing what they do and, perhaps, where they are located, but, let’s start there just in case. The calf muscles, also known as the ankle plantarflexors as well as simply, the calves, are located in the posterior lower leg region.  They are responsible for pointing the foot downward… read more

Increase Lateral Mobility With The Hip Abductors

Strong Hip Abductors Will Help You Increase Your Lateral Mobility Lateral mobility is defined as the ability to move sideways either to the left or to the right.  This lateral movement begins with the separation of one of your legs away from the other as seen by the athlete’s right leg in the figure above.  The muscles responsible for this action are the hip abductors. Having strong hip abductors will enable you to be more successful in any sport where quicker and faster lateral mobility is needed.  This is because they will allow you to gain a more dominant position… read more

Hip Adductors Help Improve Lateral Quickness in Soccer

Improve Lateral Quickness by Strengthening Your Hip Adductors The hip adductors are one of the major muscle groups that need to be strengthened for any athlete looking to improve lateral quickness, or, side to side movements.  They do this by bringing your legs towards the midline of your body as well as across the body.

However, if would be unfair to leave out the hamstrings in this discussion since they, along with the glutes,… read more
