Houston Texans S&C Coach Talks Raptors


The Ultimate Football Training Equipment

Houston Texans, the team featured on Hard Knocks, use VertiMax in their weight room but Raptors can be attached to racks, fences, walls and just about any object in the weight room. Raptors are superior to traditional bungee cords. The video below will demonstrate the latest training utilizing the portable Raptor and Raptor EX (extended range 45 yards) resistance training systems.

Most of the athletes in videos below are NFL players utilizing the Raptor resistance system just prior to reporting to preseason training camps. The Raptors will allow coaches to apply consistent horizontal loads to every movement in open field or in agility drills. This is a huge benefit over traditional resistance bands and bungee cords. Raptors will improve the training efficiency for strength, endurance and agility conditioning. This new technology opens up a complete new training dimension for both high end performance enhancement as well as rehab applications to expedite an athlete’s return to game day competition.
