  20. 21. Explosive Strength or Power <ul><li>The ability to exert maximum muscular contraction instantly in an explosive burst of movements. </li></ul><ul><li>The two components of power are strength and speed. </li></ul><ul><li>e.g. jumping or a sprint start. </li></ul>
  21. 22. Agility <ul><li>The ability to change the body`s position and direction fast. </li></ul><ul><li>e.g.: ZigZag running or cutting movements. </li></ul>
