Speed Training

 

Striive takes a new, highly effective approach to speed performance through plyometric and isometric training with resistance bands. Powerful speed-training techniques force muscles and nerves to reform the neural networks and motor pathways, and condition fast- and slow-twitch muscle fibers for the quickest speed possible.

 

Resistance bands have a unique physical property known as variable elastic potential. This means that the more a band is stretched, the greater the resistance that is applied, and the faster it will snap back. Stretching an elastic band and holding it apart with the muscles causes the acceleration factor—built into the elasticity of the band—to be transferred to the muscles. The elastic nature of muscles allows them to be conditioned to respond just like a rubber band, so they will accelerate or contract with amazing speed when stretched.
