I’d like to direct this in part to Charles Staley but would welcome all input.
My first question deals with Biomechanics of exercise. I am interested in a website or book that I can use to learn more. I have been training since I was 14 and am 25 and am just discovering Biomechanics. I recently learned the biomechanics of the bench press and now understand why my shoulders were always huge and my chest sub-par. I am realizing I need more of a mix of real science with gym science.
Secondly, I am a martial artist. I need to work on my footwork. When I spare I feel I have good hand speed but would like to increase my foot speed. Also I move back and forth too much and would like to increase my side to side movement. I am 6’1" and around 220. I am never going to be the fastest guy there. But I’ve seen masters my size who move very gracefully and that can make up for being slower than the 5’ 150lb little guy. Any ideas?
