Our challenge is to find training methods that improve strength and power specific to each of our unique training and performance situations - “optimising transference,” and in terms of speed development, a new training tool that optimises transference is wearable resistance (WR), also known as light variable resistance training (LVRT).
This is not new— wearable resistance research dates back to the 1980s.
However, a couple of new additions to this area, including the figure-hugging Exogen suits with fusiform weights (50-300 gm) that you can affix to the body anywhere there is a compressive garment—i.e., vest, shorts, arm and leg sleeves.
"In terms of high-velocity movement-specific strength and metabolic training, I haven’t come across anything better—and I have been in the game a long time and had my head across a lot of different ideas and technologies to improve speed."
