Ryan Mathews uses SKLZ Lateral Resistor at NFL Combine Training
Travelle Gaines: Lateral Resistor Bands isseriously like a staple in our program, our training program. We use the SKLZ LateralResistor Bands almost every single day. Hip flexibility is huge in what we do. If a playerstiffens his hips or he can't change direction, he's not going to be a good athlete. Sherman Armstrong: Football, basketball, whateverthe sport is, except for track, there is going to be some type of lateral movement. And with the lateral resistors, to do lateralmovement with the resistor on, all it does is challenge the athlete even more. Ryan Mathews: The Lateral Resistor Bands,they help on keeping your feet placement good.
He helps good on your balance, too. You know,when you have something strapped to your feet like that and you're having to apply pressureto the side and everything. It helps you build more strength and endurance on muscles thatyou usually don't use. Male: Any change of direction drill whereyou're using the hips is great to use with the lateral resistors. Seyi Ajirotutu: You know, a little changein direction using the resistance bands, it's good. Your resistance is harder. Chastin West: We did like a contrast. We didit with them and then we did them without,
and you can definitely feel your groin isworking the resistance, and you feel a lot faster. Male: When I take off the resistors, they'refeeling smoother, they're feeling faster, and they're stronger laterally.
ZIVA Vertical Jump Trainer Squat jumps
Seeing as we're talking about the ZIVA Vertical Trainer what I want to do is first go through asquat jump to challenge that vertical so we will sit down into a squatted position and then from here these bands are already creating resistance and now all I am going to do is just jump up I am going to sink down into that hip andjump. what you need to do is use your hands to build some momentum as you drive through those hips you are going to lengthen this tissue here to then just drive through Now if somebody can't jump to their maximum potential we can do is just
have a nice light jump to where we are basically coming up on the toes if that's too difficult just go to that squatted pattern in all three cases these tubes areserving as some resistance for that vertical pattern and that is your squat jump using the vertical trainer.
