No matter what sport you play, increasing your hand speed is absolutely essential. In a time where athletes are getting faster and stronger than ever, getting a competitive advantage has never been more vital. In order for you to become a better athlete, 2 specific actions are required.
1) You have to increase your speed and power.
2) You must do this while becoming more efficient at your specific skill and sport.
The Hand Speed Trainer™ now will allow you to functionally strength train by performing work against resistance the right way. It is as critical to train the specific movement as it is to train the muscles involved in that movement. Your brain simply thinks in terms of whole movements, not in terms of individual muscles. The exercises with the highest transfer effect are those that are essentially similar to the actual movement or activity of the skill that you want to perform in your sport.
For you to get optimal results in your sport repeated practice of the precise movement or skill is absolutely essential. It’s a must. It’s required. Because of the unique Hand Speed Trainer™ weighted system, you as an athlete are able to increase resistance in minimal increments in as little as 4 ounces. This prevents the biomechanics of the movements that you are focusing on from being compromised.
This allows complete focus for your neuromuscular system to specifically and functionally adapt the memorization of the SPECIFIC MOVEMENTS needed for you to improve your overall athletic skills. Your body will adapt to the demands that are placed upon it. By wearing the Hand Speed Trainer™s™ as you repeat sport specific movements such as swinging a baseball bat, throwing a punch, hitting a golf ball or hitting the hockey puck you will see incremental improvements quickly.
Simply by adding 4 ounces of weights to your forearms while repeating your sport specific skills will produce noticeable results, but don’t take our word for it. See what Coach JC Jonathan Conneely has to say:
Are you tired of sorting through gadgets and gimmicks to increase your power and improve performance? The HST takes the mystery out of high-performance training! Developed by a former athlete and coach, the Hand Speed Trainer brings simplicity back to sports training. No longer will we use weighted implements that affect our mechanics or elastic bands that are difficult to translate to the field, court or course.
Speed and power along with proper mechanics are the recipes for achieving your athletic goals. The HST puts these ingredients in your hands! With consistent use of the HSTs, your muscles will begin to "memorize" the proper power mechanics. That is when a powerful and consistent swing is yours! You can expect to see more power, speed, and consistency from your swing after just a few training sessions using the HSTs.
Simple is SMART! Come back to SAFE, CLEAR and FUNCTIONAL training to achieve your athletic goals! Start training with the Hand Speed Trainer TODAY!
Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demand – The SAID Principle:
Serious athletes should train smarter in accordance to the cornerstone principles of the field of Exercise Science. Knowledge of the "SAID Principle" can be used to maximize the effectiveness of your training for a specific athletic purpose.
Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands or SAID is a training principle that explains that a certain exercise or type of training produces adaptations specific to the activity performed and only in the muscles (and energy systems) that are stressed by the activity. To go one step further, according to the SAID Principle, the body adapts in a specific fashion to the specific demands that are placed on it. The SAID principle asserts that the human body adapts specifically to imposed demands . In other words, given stressors on the human system, whether biomechanical or neurological, there will be a Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands (SAID). The SAID principle is used by strength coaches to remind athletes and trainers that all training is specific to a particular task. In other words, specific skills or training may not easily transfer to distinct activities in terms of physical training activities.
The SAID principle explains that a certain type of training produces adaptations specific to the activity performed and only in the muscles (and energy systems) that are stressed by the activity.
