Belted athlete pulls against the partner, developing driving leg strength. When the partner tugs the red ripcord on the leash, the 10'L-nylon leash cleanly disconnects from the belted athlete; no dangling leash to interfere with the runner's stride. Features reinforced stitching and a 10"W easy-grip polypropylene handle. Includes a storage bag.
With the right technique and tools, anyone can improve their speed. Speed training uses resistance and assistance to teach the athlete's brain to recruit muscles faster and control them better. It develops foot speed, stride length, and strength.
Assisted Training: Also called overspeed training. Includes propulsion by latex tubing or a nylon leash. Neuromuscular advantages are experienced immediately (increased stride rate and length) and learned for use in situations without assistance.
Resistance Training: Develops strength, stamina, and stride length. Examples include fixed-resistance devices, such as a pull sled. Many resistance speed-training tools include a function that provides a sudden release ("overload") to develop explosiveness, such as a quick-release belt.
