The Katapult Training System
and its scientific methodology is by far the most advanced plyometric workout available for the serious athlete. Athletic Training Innovations (ATI
) working in conjunction with Karl Frank has created and patented its 52 week in-season off-season workout that will increase an athlete’s vertical jump, speed, lower leg strength and flexibility while decreasing the risk of injury.
The “NEW” Katapult
training shoe is lighter, better fitting and made with new composites that the user will notice immediately when compared to what is currently available. Using a dynamic 3-D computer generated program ATI was able to develop our state-of-the-art molds to create a plyometric training shoe like no other.
In a normal standing position with conventional athletic shoes roughly 2/3rds of the body’s weight is supported or rests on the heels with little effort from the calf muscles. Training in the Katapult
shoe eliminates the heel and forces the calf muscles to support the full body load. This overload works the calves and Achilles tendons with a force equal to several times the body's weight upon impact. Used correctly, the Katapult
training shoe stretches and overloads these muscles, which in time will lengthen and strengthen.
training shoes will increase vertical jump five to ten inches, lower speed in the 40-yard dash by two tenths of a second, and improve lower leg strength and flexibility. Many well-known athletes use frontal platform shoes for training, to give them an extra edge, but the shoes can help even amateur athletes excel in any sport - basketball, football, soccer, track, volleyball, body building, baseball and more.
Why the Katapult
? If you are a serious athlete or a parent of an athlete, the Katapult
training shoe and scientific methodology when followed correctly, will give you or your child the tools to prepare for the next level of competition.
