Our movement apparatus comprises very different structures, including muscles, joints, ligaments, connecting tissue, and the central nervous system, to name just a few. To achieve maximum performance, each of these structures needs to be healthy and in perfect working condition. For instance, a strong muscle can never deliver its full strength if the tendon that connects it to the bone is causing pain due to an inflammation. The same holds true for any other structure involved in body movements. The speed strength cascade shows the order in which the individual components of a movement take place.
