Athletic performance training is practiced in tandem with traditional training in many sports. These products develop two and sometimes three of these areas at once. Speed sleds, sacs and chutes focus on both speed and power. The athlete usually runs with the sled, sac or chute behind him or her and the training occurs through the additional resistance created.
Hurdles, cones, poles, floor ladders, shoe weights and the volleyball training system develop agility, balance and speed. They are placed as obstacles and used in sets of drills
If increasing power is your goal, power training gear is essential to incorporate into your workout regimen. Power sleds are pulled and develop speed and power. Sandbags are lifted up and carried in drills and build power and balance. Plyometric boxes are jumped onto to enhance vertical leaping, balance and power.
Chest expanding cables are pulled apart to build power. Cable vests, cable belts and vertical mannequins are tools used to work on vertical leaping and agility, while balance pads, boards and wheels help both balance and agility.
Tips & Expert Advice
If you want to develop acceleration and improve your stride length, use a speed training sled or chute during your workout. This type of athletic performance equipment comes with a harness that straps around your waist and/or over your shoulders for maximum efficiency. The harness is usually made from heavy-duty nylon to help you tow between 250 to 500 pounds. In addition, the harness is padded to reduce strain on your joints and muscles. Choose a three-point tether system for increased versatility.
To improve your power training workouts, opt for different levels of resistance cables. Resistance cables are interchangeable and built with portable systems to allow you to train in multiple locations. The cables come in different colors representing levels of resistance, ranging from 10 to 100 pounds. The latex bands are double-layered to improve your workout and withstand prolonged use.
