Speed & Agility Training and Running Mechanics -Train in the Sand Utilizing Myosource Kinetic Bands / Resistance Bands

Posted by

In this video this athlete is working on running form with Myosource Kinetic Bands to force him to work against the resistance.  Running in the sand works a variety of things.  Since the sand is unstable it forces the foot, ankle and knee to adjust immediately upon contact.It also helps athletes run correctly because to run in sand the knees have to be up and the feet underneath the runner and not behind the runner.  Most important is that running in sand helps to prevent injuries to the lower body because it enables the user to land softly.  The second exercise in this video is jumps on an unstable surface to a stable surface.  The initial jump forces each athlete to control the jump as they begin their jump.  Upon landing the lower body has the hit, react, and transfer energy from the sand.

Sand training is great for sport-specific speed & agility and conditioning.  Performing sport specific training in sand is shown to help prevent injury.  Sand speed and agility training is more difficult then grass or gym training so it adds to the opposition.  It results in an increase of work and many athletes are training in sand with Myosource Kinetic Bands to improve explosive moves and to build speed.  The sand shifts under the feet while Myosource Kinetic Bands are activating the muscles helping athletes work on stability and balance while decreasing their injury risks.If you do not have an ocean side beach available then a track and field pit or sand volleyball pit will work.  Speed and Agility training in the sand is also a great way to work on your starting – stopping – starting again training as well as pivots and lateral moves.  There is a variety of training speed and agility exercises that are great to perform in the sand.  These include feet shuffles as well as turn moves and sprints.  Whether you are a field or court athlete shuffle moves are great for exploding into a sprint down the court or field.  Get a set of Myosource Kinetic Bands and start your intense speed & agility training now.
