Hello–sorry for delay in seeing this, but it’s fascinating. On the VMO, assuming its importance to speed and acceleration, is that muscle also developed by riding one of the usual gym exercise bikes at the max intensity (level 20) for 12-24 minutes? I ask because the VMO on my legs always appear stronger (and pumped up) after engaging in such a bike workout (invariably, on the bike program that has you ultimately take on four sets of increasingly difficult hills). If I’m accidentally on the right VMO path with this exercise, I’d appreciate knowing it (and otherwise, if I’m not and this is counterproductive to building speed and acceleration on-ice, I’d appreciate knowing that too). Thank you again for the article and its excellent insights.
