    Can you link where you read that as it doesn't mean anything to me either?

    I think you will have difficulty to read it this way so let me type what it says:
    " the body is best suited for speed, not force. Thus, even though you are weak at the beginning of a straight-set elbow flexion movement, you posses the ability to develop great speed in the hand ( if the resistance is not too great). Very little shortening of the muscles produce a large movement of the hand. This is known as having a physiological advantage, which is very important in speed and quick"

    I guess if thinking in a purely mechanical movement frame of reference, with a long lever as in curl example - then a light force on the short end produces a fast movement on the other end.
    As opposed to say the other way around.
    If that's what they mean, many of the pivot points do that with muscle attachments.

    I'm betting if it was opposite though and even greater weights could be managed, you'd be finding the max on tendon attachment to the bone.

    Which makes it all the more incredible what is obtained for strength in lifting competitions.

    Garbage thought.

    You are suited for what you train. The human body is a amazing thing that adapts well to good training.

    In other words if you train well for speed, you'll improve for speed. IF you train well for the ability to move force, you will do that.
