not strictly training related but this is so cool: https://www.sciencenews.org/article/stimulating-spinal-cord-helps-more-paralyzed-people-walk

Paralysis is becoming less permanent — at least for some.

There’s now more evidence that stimulating the spinal cord can restore voluntary movement in paralyzed patients who haven’t recovered after other treatments. After five months of training coupled with targeted stimulation of nerve cells in the spinal cord, three people who had a severe spinal cord injury regained the ability to walk with varying degrees of support, researchers report online October 31 in Nature.

incidentally my mom used to edit that publication, science news, when i was in high school.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

A couple of days ago I was thinking about the same thing. About how damaged spinal cord where the brain sends electrical impulses. How cool it would be if it could be replicated or stimulated .

Def an interesting topic
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up
-------------------------------------------------------------
Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm

Arm also aids the legs in driving it down with power - seifullaah73
