Perhaps our most versatile product, the Leapfrog was designed to focus on overspeed—or maximum speed—training
Like a game of leapfrog, two partners wearing waist belts (one athlete and a trainer or other athlete) are joined via a 4-foot Slastix (see photo) while the two take turns shuffling, back-pedaling, or engaging in a variety of sports-specific performance drills. While simultaneously running the Leapfrog utilizes the individuals’ own speed and weight to provide a gradual resistance for their partner as the lead athlete runs ahead of the other until maximum resistance is nearly achieved. At this point, the trailing runner is pulled forward in a burst of speed, as they alternate coaxing each other to spring forward adapting to a longer stride while improving their strength. Includes two waist belts and one 4-foot slastix.
