The following statement by Brett Lee I found interesting:
"I don't do too much upper- body weight training because that shortens the muscles, and fast bowlers need long, elastic limbs."
Now, I can lift much heavier weights but I don't as I want to promote fast movements. What is your take on this?
Also this quote from Brett's fitness trainer:
"We want to mimic the movements that happen when he bowls," Karppinen said.
"We're trying to promote speed. That includes quick, light upper-body weights and heavier lower-body weights."
How do I define light upper body weight and heavier lower body weights? Does that mean I should be doing barbell curls of only 40 lbs and doing 180 lb squats, etc?
