For speed training we use a technique called “Extreme Slow” on the ARP POV. The athlete goes through their running motion ONE TIME, over a 5 minute period. What occurs is two-fold:
High Velocity Muscle Contractions
The signals being sent from the ARP POV are neurologically contracting the muscle at 245 X per second, which is high velocity. When this occurs, the brain sends mechanisms to support this high velocity in the form of fuel and additional muscle actions (muscles they have probably never used for sprinting and speed), etc.
The muscles are telling the brain that they are training at max velocity, so the brain sends support for that to continually occur.
This greatly benefits the athlete by creating a new foundation of neuromuscular support as if they were training at max velocity; which allows them to achieve feats of strength and speed they could never replicate in a weight room.
Elimination Of Compensatory Actions
By doing it in Extreme Slow, the athlete can train at this high velocity without compensatory actions.
For example, if you are max bench pressing and trying to get that final rep; you would probably arch your back, use your stronger arm a little more than the other to compensate and push it to the final point. That is compensatory actions.
If you were to run as fast as you could over 100 yards, in the last 10 yards you swing your arms harder, bend your head lower, or use other positions or compensatory actions to finish the sprint.
In Extreme Slow, however, you can do it with proper form and even correct certain flaws in motion, which would be impossible to do in real time.
Remember, while you are doing this, the muscles and nervous system think this is occurring at max velocity and max speed so you are creating muscle memory of this action and doing so with almost perfect form.
The muscles neurologically think you are training at max velocity with hundreds of reps which creates a new neurological muscle memory pattern and the brain sends mechanisms to support these actions; making you STRONGER and FASTER.
