Tennis Ball Method
What is the StrikeTrainer?
The StrikeTrainer TM is a unique device that helps fighters keep their chin down during training by using muscle memory. Unlike the traditional approach, which requires fighters to place a tennis ball under the chin during striking exercises, the StrikeTrainer simply clips onto a fighter's shorts and stays on for as long as necessary.
The Benefits of using the StrikeTrainer
- Consistency: Because the StrikeTrainer does not fall out, fighters do not have to worry about chasing a tennis ball around every five minutes. This allows them to focus on their technique
- Maneuverability: Unlike the tennis ball, the StrikeTrainer allows fighters a full range of motion of the head and neck area. This allows fighters to practice bobbing and weaving in conjunction with striking, which reinforces more natural movements.
- Constant Tension: The StrikeTrainer places constant tension on a fighter's neck, allowing him to build proper muscle memory even when he is not focusing on keeping his chin down.
- Breathing Technique: Because the StrikeTrainer works by requiring the fighter to bite down on a mouthguard, the fighter develops proper breathing technique throught the entire workout.
