Smooth Is Fast? Not So Fast

Smooth is fast. Smooth is powerful. But smooth is not floppy. Smooth is actually the result of well-timed and synchronized co-contractions that remove muscle slack, eliminate shear forces (jerk), and amplify power, coordination and control, and protection (PCP).

Beware Of The Cult Of Average

At the ARMory we study OUTLIERS so my players can become THAT GUY! While science seeks to find common denominators among the normal, it propagates “The Cult of Average.” Average is a code word for mediocre, and that is not our goal at The Florida Baseball ARMory.
