What is the difference between GXBolt and a traditional sled?
1). A traditional sled only focuses on the drive phase and is limited in other applications when it comes to athletic ability.
2). When developing speed, the legs do more than propeller the athlete forward. The legs must
cycle to reproduce force; here the hip flexors play a major role.
3). The stride has two major components, stride frequency and stride length. A traditional sled grossly neglects these major component when developing power and speed.
4). A traditional sled does not develop any under body strength when developing speed.
5). By overloading athletes on a traditional sled, when the athletes are doing unresistant training you will notice the athletes stumbles. A traditional sled causes the athletes to under stride therefore preventing the athlete from fully maximizing the power that has been developed.
6). When the athletes are transitioning from the drive phase into reaching maximum velocity, a traditional sled has no purpose. Power is no longer produced from the quadriceps and gluteus maximus muscle as sprinting angles have changed.
7). When developing first step quickness, a traditional sled has no purpose. With it's multi-purpose resistance connections, GXBolt-963 allows for full athletic development by placing resistance around both arms and legs.
8). Proper sprinting mechanics, by neglecting the entire upper body a traditional sled can not help improve proper sprinting mechanics. GXBolt-963 allows coaches and athletes to improve proper sprinting mechanics. GXBolt-963 allows athletes to functionally develop power and upper body strength with full resistance.
9). Agility, a traditional sled simply has no ability to help athletes develop this athletic application.
