Are You Activating Your Golgi Receptors?

Holy Moly, I didn’t even know I had such a thing. Here’s an article about learning from other sports to improve your climbing. An excerpt is  below:

The use of short, explosive, all-out 1-rep contractions in training, does not so much get you stronger in absolute terms but it trains your bodies 'muscle regulator', the golgi tendon receptor to activate more muscle fibres more quickly, thus enabling you simply to use what you have more efficiently. The progressive use of De-inhibition training teaches us to extend this safety zone to allow us to recruit more power yet still within safe working limits.
