Power is the combination of raw strength and speed of motion. If either is lacking, the athlete is doomed to mediocrity. With an abundance of both, the athlete knows no limits.
Our hip, thigh, and calf muscles have the ability to contract and extend in a small fraction of a second. In fact, they are forced to do so whenever we run or jump. Weight training may make these muscles contract harder, but it does little to condition their contractile speed.
For this reason, the Plyo-SledTM was created. It allows athletes to easily add power-enhancing plyometric exercises to their training programs. The Plyo-SledTM supports the athlete´s body completely, and is fully adjustable with eight selectable bands providing resistive forces to 400 pounds. This fast, acting resistance, coupled with a silent, frictionless glide system, makes the Plyo-SledTM the ultimate machine for developing explosive leg power.
