    I was having a discussion with my friend about muscle contraction speed. Is there a way to increase the actual speed that the muscle contracts? I was thinking that the only way to increase speed (albeit very minimally) is to lift heavier and preferentially use type 2 fibers.  He was thinking that by training lighter and focusing on moving fast on the concentric it would train the muscle to be faster.
