If you’re looking for speed training equipment, then WearBands is the perfect choice. Our bands add full-time, no-impact, core-to-foot variable resistance to functional training drills with no restrictions on movement. The athlete can train in his/her own athletic shoes anywhere, including the field of play, at full speed. Full-speed, unrestricted movement under variable resistance from the core to the foot conditions and strengthens the athlete’s muscles and connective tissues to move in a more coordinated fashion. The full-time variable resistance also improves neuromuscular connections. The result is a quicker, more explosive athlete.
WearBands’ full-time variable resistance engages and strengthens the core and core-to-foot kinetic chain – the foundation of all athletic movement – while the athlete is in motion. Variable resistance, which increases as the bands are elongated, helps prevent runners from overstriding, while at the same time providing a small assist during the runner’s recovery stage. The result is faster, more efficient turnover. A stronger core and improved turnover results in more speed.
WearBands allows the athlete to functionally train under no-impact resistance for an extended period of time. The result is improved, sport-specific muscle endurance, crucial to athletic success at the end of a race or the final seconds of a game.
The foot is often ignored during resistance training. Weak feet and ankles can make an athlete more injury prone, and they can affect the entire lower-body chain up to, and including, the back. WearBands incorporates the foot and ankle into its no-impact, variable resistance training. Variable resistance is applied to the foot and ankle during every movement performed with the WearBands system. The foot and ankle are therefore trained in unison with the rest of the lower-body chain, improving mobility and reducing the risk of foot-related injury.
Unlike weighted clothing, which adds resistance externally and thereby increases impact forces, WearBands' no-impact, variable resistance is all generated internally. The result is functional resistance training with no additional impact. The athlete receives all of the benefits of functional resistance training without any of the potentially debilitating effect of weighted clothing.
Working out with WearBands combines core-to-foot resistance work with cardio/conditioning work. The result is a more time-efficient workout, reducing the need to spend additional time in the weight room or on the field.
WearBands’ unique ability to add light, variable resistance to dynamic warm-ups improves muscle and nervous system activation during warm-ups, reducing the risk of workout injuries.
WearBands applies equal variable resistance to both sides of the lower body during physical activity. Weaker muscle group sides are therefore exposed during exercise by quicker fatigue, alerting the athlete and trainer to any muscle imbalances. These can be eliminated through use of the WearBands system.
