Track is one of the purest sports; a test of how far and how fast the human body can go. That doesn’t mean, however, that track athletes can expect to perform to their utmost ability without relying on off-track training. In fact, world-renowned champions attest to the fact that strength training is key to success in track just as it is in any other sport.
Why? Because strength training fulfills a dual role of improving performance while staving off injury. It’s been scientifically proven to improve everything from bone health to the resiliency of muscles and other soft tissue.
But not all strength training programs are created equal. In fact, many regimes can do more harm than good by forcing the athlete to practice a series of unnatural movements by restricting the expression of their natural form. This leads to imbalances within key muscle groups that track stars rely on to drive them towards the finish line.
The Vertimax is the only training system that allows athletes to take on resistance while retaining their authentic movement.
VertiMax technology allows sprinters to load both the drive and recovery phases of running to develop explosive power in every leg muscle you need for increased speed. VertiMax Training technology and the VertiMax Platforms and Raptors have helped Track and Field athletes at every level by enhancing explosive power out of the blocks with more top end speed down the stretch. VertiMax Platform and Raptor Training equipment helps track athletes improve quickness, power and endurance in any event. Since Track and Field athletes require an excellent combination of strength, speed, and power to excel in competition - VertiMax offers highly effective equipment options to quickly develop sport-specific acceleration abilities for sprint events and lower body reactive power for field events requiring explosive movements. Implementing a VertiMax track strength training program will dramatically increase explosive leg power and speed to radically elevate an athlete’s competitive ability.
VertiMax is the best way to improve athletic speed and explosive athletic abilities. Hundreds of colleges and performance centers across the US including 65% of the NFL, 50% of the NBA, 65% of Division 1 colleges now use VertiMax to develop athletic speed & power. Leading track teams use VertiMax Platforms and Raptors to improve their athletic abilities.
