Product Description and Claims

The Defensive Slide Bar is a portable training device that through use does the following: 

1. Increases the recruitment of hip abductor, hip extensor, hip flexor, hip external rotator, and knee extensor muscles during side-to-side defensive-style shuffling.

Allows coaches, trainers and athletes to target specific muscles to address athlete weaknesses.

2. Prevents a narrow stance during the return phase of shuffling.

Ensures proper wide stance foot work.

3. Increases the difficulty in stepping out during shuffling.

Promotes a potentially larger training stimulus.

4. Reduces the eccentric demand on lower limb muscles during shuffling.

This might have positive implications for athletes training when they are sore.
