Blazepod’s Sport-Specific Exercises for Reflex Training

Blazepod, one of the leading technology-based reflex training systems, has become a vital component in most top-tier athletes’ workout regimen- and for a reason.

Reflexes are automatic body movements in response to stimuli. These involuntary body movements are necessary for everyday activities that keep us safe. For instance, if you touch a hot surface, reflex action causes you to retract your hand fast even before pain sets in.  

Reflex also has a significant bearing on an individual’s success in sports because it directly impacts reaction time. Reaction time refers to how fast you respond to external stimuli. Whether you’re into boxing, soccer, racquet games, or basketball, there are plenty of instances where being just a little quicker makes all the difference.

Some athletes have quicker reflexes than others. Naturally, such individuals will have the upper hand in most sports because they possess more rapid reaction time.

Luckily, while reflexes are involuntary and unlearned, reactions are voluntary and can be improved. Quick reaction time is the most essential investment your athletes and clients can possess. By reducing that brief moment of ‘buffering,’ boxers can act swiftly to their opponents’ actions to avoid destructive punches. Likewise, defenders in soccer can make quick decisions to prevent a possible penetration.

One surefire way of boosting an athlete’s reaction timing is to practice a lot. But what’s even more important is to engage in activities that are designed to stimulate sport-specific reflexes.

Customized reflex practice activities develop an athlete’s ability to react fast to specific stimuli. Blazepod reaction training system is based on this principle. This kit (consisting of the Blazepod App and smash-proof light-based pods) comes preloaded with plenty of workout activities categorized under each type of sport: basketball, soccer, tennis, martial art, and fitness, among others.

By engaging in sport-specific exercises, your clients will be able to develop vital neural connections between their minds and body that are more specific to what they are interested in. This connection becomes stronger as the players continue engaging with the practices.

Blazepod reflex training system packs other benefits for your clients besides developing their reaction time, though. Depending on the type of sport, they will also realize improved coordination, balance, agility, and quick decision-making.
