Having Fun Training With Reaction Ball Want to improve agility, reaction time, and hand-eye coordination while having fun at the same time? Think it’s not possible to incorporate fun in your gruelling day-to-day training? A reaction ball would do all that for you and more! Despite its name, a reaction ball is not like a common spherical ball. but it is a mold of a number of spherical balls. It is fairly easy to incorporate during training, but the drills themselves are harder than they look. The main purpose of this ball is for athletes to bounce it and attempt to catch it. It sounds easy, but it is actually hard because the ball bounces quickly and in many different directions. The athlete has a hard time predicting the direction of its bounce and must learn to adjust and react quickly. If you play any kind of sports, you will know the need for agility and hand-eye coordination. In basketball, a teammate may unexpectedly pass the ball and you need to catch it so that it will not result in a turnover. Higher reflexes are also valued in sports; it is a very important component even in non-contact sports like badminton, ping pong, and tennis. How it Works The ball bounces in many unpredictable and random directions. It has many sides so the athlete cannot predict where the ball will bounce. The mechanism can be explained through physics, but the main point of this during training is its unpredictability, which helps hone the reaction skills of the athlete. Reaction Ball on Walls The usage of a reaction ball is not limited to a team effort, but can also be used alone through the help of a wall. Throw it against the wall and try to catch it on its way back to you. The first few attempts might prove futile, but you will soon get the hang of it once you have developed your reflexes. Reaction Ball on the Floor You can also do this alone or with a partner. Bounce the ball on the ground and catch it before it hits the floor again. This works the same as on the wall, but the movement here will be vertical. The point of using reaction balls is not to run and catch it, but to learm where the ball will go and be able to catch it before exerting unnecessary effort. It improves speed and the ability to decide quickly on what path to take. This drill is helpful especially for goalies because their reaction time is shortened through mastering this exercise, as well as basketball players calculating bounce passes, tennis players, football tip drills, and baseball hop drills.

Sports Speed Ladder

Ever wondered how Michael Jordan could perform his signature shot perfectly? Does he think about every step in order to perform flawlessly? When interviewed and asking him what he thinks during a perfectly executed lay up, he just responded with, “I don’t know, I just do it.” With this, we could say that routines and actions executed during a game are deeply ingrained into athletes to the extent they do not have to consciously think about their every move.

Speed Parachute

Parachute training is difficult for some athletes, but studies have shown that training with a chute enhances speed by 3.3% compared to those who did not use a chute. Those who did train with chutes had an improvement rate of 1.8% at 0-20- meter runs. The same improvement has been observed at distances of 20-25 meters.
