There is nothing better in sports training than to go against another athlete. Training alone lacks the reactive nature needed to improve true agility.
The Light Attack creates real game reaction training in an individual practice environment.
Sports movements on an athletic field are in reaction to an opponent or teammate. At the start of a play, an athlete's first step may be predetermined, but all movements after the first step or two are reactionary movements based on other athletes' movements. Furthermore, these reactionary movements are mostly based visual recognition of other players movements.
Running from cone to cone, ladder drills or other predetermined movements do not prepare athletes for real game situations with visual stimulus. These drills are important and fundamental to sports movement, but do not train reactionary movements needed in real game situations.
The Light Attack combines random light movements and adjustable speed variations to allow athletes to work drills which train reactionary movements which are based on visual stimulus, much like real game environments.
Reactions based on visual stimulus training is just as important to an athlete as is physical speed strength training. As coaches, we have all had players on our teams that vary in speed and agility qualities. Some are faster than others, but in some instances, the slower speed players look faster on the field than the faster players because the can read the stimulus presented, make a decision and react quicker than other athletes. Hense making them look faster in speed than those athletes that may have a faster 40 time.
This is due to that fact that they can process data thru the conduit faster than other athletes. So, what is the conduit??
THE CONDUIT is path of what happens when athletes react to a visual stimulus presented by another athlete.
1. The athlete's eyes see what another athlete is doing.
2. This vision has to pass thru the optical nerve and into the brain.
3. The brain has to process the image the eyes have presented to the brain.
4. The brain has to decide which movement it would like the body to do to react to the opponent.
5. Process what muscles and how hard those muscles need to fire for the movement desired.
6. Send impulses to those muscles which cause the muscles to fire in the desired movement.
Think of how many times in a second during a sports play the conduit has do this process over and over again. Outside of game and practice situations where athletes are going against other athletes, what are you doing to train THE CONDUIT?
This is where THE LIGHT ATTACK can completely change the way athletes train by introducing visual stimulus to practice environments.
