🔹they get all these anaerobic alactic or lactic adaptations depending the duration of effort of the movement or the rest between repetitions which will help them during their sport specific training or a competition .
🔹it has been shown that working on speed outside of your sport, has better nervous system activation which leads to more motor unit recruitment and fast twich fibers
