VERTIMAX TRAINING BASICS
Without question, Vertimax Training basics can help any athlete improve their results when it comes to sport-specific training. No matter what your given sport, be it football, basketball, baseball, or even mixed martial arts, it’s important to prepare and customize your workout in such a way you will yield optimal results that can clearly be translated on to your chosen playing field. Learn the Vertimax training basics to translate star potential into star performance.
So how many Vertimax sessions should an athlete perform in a given week? Preferably, an athlete should try to engage in Vertimax training sessions at least three times a week with six resisted sets of exercise. For example, in a standard vertical leap-training session, you might perform four sets of Quarter-Quicks and two sets of Half-Quicks. A training session itself doesn’t need to take all that long. Just be sure to perform the sets as focused and quickly at possible at a maximum effort level. This will help you get the most out of each training session.
So how much should you rest between sets? Vertimax training is such that having too much time between sets is better than not having enough. The more time an athlete has to recover between sets, the more effort and speed he can generate on the next set. A recommended rest period of 35 seconds to two minutes is suggested between each set. Experts also suggest that between sets, the athlete not perform further lower-body exercises. This will help optimize muscle memory and post-training improvement. Instead allow the athlete to perform upper-body exercise or core training, during this time period.
One of the important factors in a successful Vertimax training program is using the proper resistance for a given exercise. Depending on which Vertimax training unit that you are using, you will have different options for cords and resistance levels. In general, it is optimal to find a level that resists the athlete enough to allow them to perform an exercise at 70% of the level they would perform without resistance. So for example if an athlete can jump 30 inches without resistance, they would be able to jump approximately 21 inches with Vertimax resistance. Fine-tuning resistance levels can take a bit of time, but the results will be well worth the effort. Just be sure to find a level that is challenging, but not overwhelming for a given user.
