Evidence Based Concepts (EBC) inherent in these new training applications will revolutionize your approach to competing in your sport. Train your entire body by integrating your sensory and physical systems with precise timing sequences that emulate your opponent's movements.
This Tennis Plus Application includes the original 10 drills from the Sports Split Step Tennis App and an additional 5 Hand Feed Drills. The additional drills allows the athlete to improve their acceleration and speed of movement in a progressively challenging manner while working with a hand tossed ball. Emphasis on seeing, anticipating, hearing and then reacting provides a process by which all athletes and increase their sensory-motor skills, something referred to as Reaction-Based Training.
The App provides the necessary timing (using beeps) for allowing the coach feedback for gauging their toss, while at the same time using a sequence of RED lights to allow the athlete 'keys' for when to prepare loading for the split step.
Features include: 1. Three levels of difficulty (Slow, Medium, Fast). 2. Movement selections from 15 different drills. 3. Drills have timed movements in 8 different directions or combinations of directions. 4. Eight drills are Closed (repeatable) and 2 drills are user selectable as Open (Random) or Closed patterns. 5. A simple and fun experience of introducing athletes to sensory-motor training. 6. Unique stimulus for generating the timing for initial movements used in many different sports (i.e. split step in tennis or pre-hop in baseball). 7. A training environment for combining initial movements with sport specific development (i.e. melding of the split step, movement to ball, and hitting an imaginary tennis ball). 8. Sensory cues (both visual and audio) by which to anticipate movement involved in learning to time and hit an imaginary ball, (i.e. decelerating and execution of a sports specific movement). 9. Challenges that improve agility and balance for all athletes, while improving sports specific conditioning. 10. Allows the tennis player the opportunity to learn the split step while hitting balls. 11. Allows coaches opportunities to give stroke feedback while hitting balls, without sacrificing the proper preparation for executing the split step.
Shadowing Drills (Cues Include 4 Directional Arrows)
1. Split-Hop (vertical timing of the hop, no Directional Arrows) 2. Left (moving to left Directional Arrow) 3. Right (moving to right Directional Arrow) 4. Middle (moving as in an inside-out shot, left & right Directional Arrows together) 5. Lateral (moving to left, Middle, & right Directional Arrows, Closed or Open) 6. Fwd Left (moving forward & left, top & left Directional Arrows) 7. Fwd Right (moving forward & right, top and right Directional Arrows) 8. Back Left (moving back & left, bottom and left Directional Arrows) 9. Back Right (moving back & right, bottom and right Directional Arrows) 10. All Directions (moving in each of 8 different (Closed or Open)
Hand Feed Ball Drills (patterns repeat continuously)
1. Medium times between 6 balls 2. Three Medium, then 3 Slow times between 6 balls 3. Two Medium, then 2 Slow, then 2 Fast times between 6 balls 4. Two Extra-Slow, then 2 Fast, then 2 Medium times between 6 balls 5. Alternating Fast, then Extra-Slow times between 6 balls
