Introduction

Rate of Force Development (RFD) is an important component of most athletic performances in sports that require rapid force generation and most athletes would benefit from a faster RFD. By increasing an athletes power (RFD Training) results in quicker, more explosive movements for athletes, that can be anything from tennis serve or getting the bar moving sooner in lifting sports. Understanding this component of physical fitness is essential if it is to be efficiently integrated into strength and conditioning (S&C) programmes, whereby athletes first increase force output (maximum strength), and then the ability to apply this force under ever shorter timescales in movement skills specific to their sport.
