EXPLOSIVE FIRST STEP
As the name implies, the purpose of our Explosive First Step is to provide the ultimate training tool for sprinters and other athletes for whom rapid acceleration is crucial.
To achieve this, we created a short, heavy-resistance Slastix band that creates up to 150 pounds* of resistance when fully stretched. Wearing the padded power pull belt that attaches Slastix to an anchor (such as a wall) or a training partner (who provides resistance while trailing behind), athletes engage in rapid-acceleration drills, similar to that of a batter leaving the box, or a football player exploding through the line. Our patented triangle rings allow athletes to move 180 degrees in either direction while the 6-foot Slastix allows them to run 18 feet from an anchored position. By practicing with our Explosive First Step, athletes are readier than ever on game day. Includes… *depending on the resistance strength of Slastix you purchase.
