Just looking for an oppinion.

I know that there are exercises that build strength. (one arm pull up) Some build endurance (many push ups)

What builds speed?
Plyometric exercises?

Practice. Seriously, take this for an example: the spinhook kick. The speed and the power will come naturally, what you need to is keep practicing it over and over again. The more you practice the closer you get to reaching the level that you need when the time comes.

Plyometrics build speed and power, but practicing will always give you the power naturally, and will also work on your coordination and precision.

What builds speed?Good body mechanics and relaxation. Tension is the biggest killer of speed, IMO.

What needs speed builds speed...
Dubble clap pushups are great muscle ups , pulups to the abdomen and so on all of then use a lto of explosive power and speed...

reaction speed is a whole different thing though

I meant speed that once your aquire, you don't loose. Like it sticks with you.

Thanks for all the replies and advice gentelmen.

The weird thing is that doing faster exercises makes you faster just like doing heavier exercises makes you stronger. The hard part is evaluating the speed. Timing your concentrics, and doing explosive things that launch you into the air are a good thing because if you weren't fast enough, you wouldn't be able to launch into the air regardless of your speed.

For example, you do one-arm-pullups for strength. Do jumping 2-armed pullups for speed. Ross Enamait does these, he pulls up so fast his hands lift up off the bar a bit, with clapping and stuff. Obviously a bit dangerous though so I'd only do it on a lower bar...

Plyometrics are good, and also agility ladders.

Yup, speed builds speed. Look into football training for fast hands and fast feet, such as the agility drills that were linked here a day or two ago. And obviously the training lighter weight boxers do for speed would be good as well.

To be frank, it is a stunningly complex issue with a lot of contradictory info.
