Hi. My name is Trevor Theismann from Kbandstraining.com. I’ve got a power drill here that’s going to utilize victory ropes. If you haven’t got your hands on a set of victory ropes, they are extremely unique. They are two power cords with four multi-flex resistance bands inside. We can double those up and almost get up to 45, 46 feet of resistance and it’s really going to weight you down. If you notice in the video now, we’ve got an athlete pull the loop through, so we’ve got a nice waist belt. Now, we’re going to run forward at about 8 to 10 feet and you’ll be hovering over the top of a cone. Touch as far as you can, moving those feet quickly, we’re going to change direction. You have to stabilize with that rear anchor. You’re going to do that two times before a final sprint out.
Now, if you notice, I’m walking forward with the athlete ever so slowly so each individual stop, you’re getting more resistance. You’re not getting less. I’m not coming all the way forward letting off all the resistance. The athlete will sprint. I’m walking forward, taking a little bit of the tension off as they touch over the cones. And then they move in to the next cone.
The great thing about victory ropes is you can flip in and out with no belts. Tons of power in these cords and you can just drop the victory rope. The next athlete can hop in, pull it up around their waist, cinch just a little bit, and you’re going to be ready to move. It’s a great team exercise because you can turn it over so quick. Complete about six to eight anchored sprints, touch over the cone, transition properly, use your arms to drive forward any type of an anchor drill with victory ropes is working on stride length. Remember the two keys to speed is stride frequency and stride length. This specific exercise is going to be working on how far you can stride with power. Add the resistance but make sure that the athletes never get stuck when they’re running. They want to be able to maintain that good range of motion and keep working for speed.
For your very own set of the victory ropes head to Kbandstraining.com. We’ve got a great dual kit. We’ve got the elite speed kit with the victory ropes in it. Included is the Kbands, Reactive Stretch Cord, and the Victory Ropes, or you can grab just your Victory Ropes if you already have a set of Kbands there.
