This is a great way to combine velocity training with explosive training back to back.
In the video above the athlete performs a thruster exercise with DB's while tethered at the hips on the Vertimax platform. The athlete is wearing a Push Velocity tracker throughout both exercises. While performing the thruster, the Push Tracker records the velocity and power of each rep.
At the completion of the thruster, the athlete immediately performs tethered vertical jumps on the Vertimax. Although this can be taxing on the athlete, it's a great combo to:
- Build strength
- Increase power
- Track movement velocity of each rep
