Track & Field athletes require an excellent combination of strength, speed, power to excel in competition. Implementing VertiMax in your track & field strength training program will dramatically increase explosive leg power and speed to radically elevate an athlete's competitive ability. Vertimax is the most effective equipment to quickly develop sports specific acceleration abilities for sprint events and lower body reactive power for field events requiring explosive movements.
