The 17 DL uses the same governor as our Leaper units. Athletes
can set the speed control lever for FAST speed work or SLOW
work. We recommend most work at FAST speed to develop their
white quick twitch muscle fibers for more explosive action
in the game. Recommended program 30 reps in 30 seconds for
the FAST speed workout, 3 days per week and one day per
week, 20 reps setting the speed lever SLOW to maintain their
strength. This workout can be increased to 2 or 3 sets when
the athletes accommodate to this isokinetic workout. All
this, SAFELY, as they are creating their own resistance
thru the full range of motion with each and every fatiguing
rep. (not possible with usual weight training) Additionally,
bench pressing, upright rows, curls and more exercises can
be done. Overall, our Deadlift exerciser emphasizes the
glutes and hamstrings for more hip explosion.
For some athletes, optional weights can be added for eccentric
work if desired. The FAST speed workout can also be done
with 90 lbs or more weight added.
weights provides eccentric work which still allows fast
speed work out.
reading for charting improvements to motivate athletes.
Our old Leapers had only a simple force dial with one reading
of maximum effort at the strongest point in the range
of motion. Today we offer a very strong motivational
LCD reading for charting strength gains.
Our Lcds has 5 different reading for the users. As
the athletes are working on the leaper, the LCDs are only
12 inches from their eyes. The 1st button is the athletes
POWER reading on every rep as as they exercise. The 2nd
button brings up a reading of the TOTAL WORK done for
the full number of reps they have done. The 3rd button
counts theREPS. The 4th button provides the actual amount
of TIME exercised with that bout of reps. And the
the 5th button provides the AVERAGE WORK of the number
of reps done. This is probably the most important reading
as this reading calculates the fatigue factor when doing
25-30 reps. When comparing workout numbers, it is best to always
set governor at slow speed. Excellent motivation! Athletes
can chart their workout. Our LCDs readings
can be charted and show monthly athletic power gains. The
best test of power is the vertical jumping and
the leaper is key to develop power.
