Abstract

A basic motor ability involved in many different motor tasks is anaerobic muscular power. Defined as the ability to rapidly generate and apply large amounts of force and thereby impart high velocity to the body, its segments and/or external objects, this ability is involved in the successful performance of virtually all running, jumping and throwing events for which muscle strength and speed are important.
