  • Effect of strength training on leg speed

    How does strength training affect leg speed? Kickers in football can snap their their legs extremely fast which cause the ball to go further distances. Does having strong legs have anything to do with this? If not, what would cause a kicker to be able to kick further than others? Regardless of the skill factor.

    I would presume having more muscle mass would increase one's maximal force production capability, and being able to kick longer distances for example.
